My boyfriend and I did Care for Elephants and it was basically the best day ever. (like ever). The staff is amazing and really walks you through what the park is doing and makes you aware of how critical it's mission is. The elephants couldn't be sweeter and you feel like you really just get to tag along on what's... More

Not totally as depicted or described. They make it seem like it's a vast nature park for elephants without borders or commands. We did the 1 day care for elephants which was amazing experience. Don't get me wrong, I love what their goal and what they do.Especially not riding the elephants. It was an amazing experience. However. Witnessing a lot... More

Very well run operation that treats these elephants with kindness and respect. Our tour guide was very well informed. Lots of very good food provided buffet style, all vegetarian. You are picked up in a very comfy and clean shuttle van w/ AC.

I visited ENP as a week long volunteer and it exceeded my expectations. As an animal lover, ENP is 100% committed to their elephant's happiness & welfare while providing an up close, hands on opportunity to care for & interact with these amazing rescues which was very important to me. The staff, the experience, THE FOOD were all amazing. I... More

Opted for the Elephant Freedom day out as we have 2 young children. Transfer from hotel to park was in a comfortable, air conditioned minibus. Our guide was excellent and we were given every opportunity to interact with the elephants throughout the day - feeding them, jungle walk and washing them. Our children loved it!!

Excellent place, my girlfriend and I choose it because in this place don't abuse of the elephant, you can't ride it or bother. You feed them, see the installations. The lunch was perfect, a lot of food. The gift shop it's very expensive! You can see baby elephants and families!

After being in Bangkok and seeing the horrid conditions of even street animals, this place helped redeem my visit. It was heartbreaking hearing the stories of some of the elephants, but we were impressed with the care and surroundings that they are given here. The food they receive is impressive (down to the hand prepared rice meals for elephants without... More

My husband and I visited the park today. Once picked up at a pre determined location, they show you a video in the van that demos the purpose of this organisation which is to rescue and rehabilitate elephants from inhumane circumstances. The park is huge surrounded by mountains and ethically sound (no riding allowed). The price is definitely steep compared... More

I can't recommend this place highly enough and it was a highlight of our whole holiday. We were picked up promptly from our hotel and taken direct to the park. During this time you are given a short intro about the park and some do's and don'ts. Our guide for the day was Sai and he was very friendly and... More
