I loved the elephant village. I feel like I should have opted for the bath session, their prices are very reasonable. I fed the elephants which is a bit scary since I've never been so close to such big animals. They were very friendly and seemed happy

The elephant ride was a lot of fun and they even walk into the water (don't worry, you won't get wet). The place itself was not too great, but the there's a cool cafe where you can feed the elephants in the water. The show was terrible, just some ladyboys dancing around with a bird and a snake.

This place was way better than it needed to be. I thought it would just be an elephant ride but it’s so much more. Get the watermelon smoothie for the complementary drink.

I thought it was a sanctuary for elephants but I was very disappointed.
3 elephants not looking happy, 2 with chains on their legs. And set up for paid elephant rides, photos with tourists for money.
Apart from that 3 parrots, goats, sheep, snake but looked very neglected.
Small cafe for drinks.
A show, ladyboys dancing but not in any coordination, poor singing, most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen.

To say this place is hell on earth would be an understatement. The pictures of these elephants alone speak more than enough words. The blatant use of elephants for riding, shows, bathing, and so on for tourists is absolutely horrific. Please educate yourself on the ethics (or, definitive, lack thereof) in elephant riding and shows.

What's even more sickening is the advertising of "rescued" elephants from forced labor in oil plantations and so on, knowing that their current living conditions are very much forced labor with immense abuse.

This is a must!!
Such an amazing day out
The children and adults alike all loved it here
We got to hand feed animals fruit and vegetables
Which was an amazing experience
Being so close to elephants was mind blowing, we fed them and they were so gentle

The food and drink in the cafe was delicious too

Animal concentration camp. Elephants hit with sharp sticks and chained up. Don’t support this establishment.
