Different options for different prices. Short ride in elephant, bath and some feeding and final special shower. Get some clothes because after the shower you'll need it. You can combine the visit with the tea factory tour and the spicies garden in full day trip

Visited with my parents. And though it was good to see elephants and spend time with them, the elephants did not seem to be treated with care or respect - pushed along / hit with sticks and during busy periods without breaks as well. They need to work on improving the conditions for the elephants. Really felt bad for even... More

I can't remember laughing and enjoying myself that much in decades! This place is great! Make sure that you go bathe the elephants and that you bathe too! Amazing rescued elephants and trainers.

Wonderful experience watching the elephants lifting logs, being able to feed them, and watch them enjoying a bath. You could ride on the back of an e!ephant, but our old legs would not let us do this, so we got a reduction in price !

Go for the 1 hour package and ask to wash the elephants. The elephants appeared to love it. Great value. Amazing experience

Spent an amazing day with elephants was so interesting to hear from the young passionate man who managed the place (sorry forgot his name) who explained about the rescue of the 5 elephants and their care. I was uncomfortable about riding on the elephant but was mesmerised with washing and feeding Myrra who was so calm and relaxed. It was... More

We are two animal friends that had heard there are elephant rescue places that are financed by tourism. We wanted to come close up to this beautiful animal and thought we would give it a try. We went on a short ride on one elephant. The man leading this elephant was calm and seemed to treat the elephant nicely. Infront... More

We a had a great time here, all the elephants are well looked after, there are no baskets/chair to sit in so you have to straggle the elephant, they are very wide!!😳long walk up into the woods, worth paying a bit extra to give your elephant a bath after your walk, they love it and you get to scrub them,...
