I cannot say enough amazing things about Patara. The day starts out by visiting the new born baby elephants which are the cutest things you will ever see. The focus of Patara is not just rescue and rehabilitation but also reproduction and reintroduction. Then they...More

Let me first start by saying Patara advertises itself as a sanctuary that rescues elephants out of situations such as circuses and labor jobs where they are treated poorly. While I believe that this is probably true I do not believe the elephants are treated...More

I booked the riding tour. It is ethically okay as you sit bare back and don't cause the elephant distress. I'm 65 and managed it fine. It is a truly wonderful experience but if you feel you don't want to ride go anyway... More
