This facility was truly amazing! It was a very personalized experience with an excellent guide. He obviously loves and cares well for the elephants and it shows. We had the experience of a lifetime riding, bathing, and caring for the elephants. It is a must!!

We had a great experience at Gachorgwa.
Art, the 2 elephant keepers, as well as the photographer all do a wonderful job.

Dear Tripadvisor User: GL2016
First of all to make it clear, Gachorgwa Elephant Camp "don't have" over night program at all. We do provide only Day trip. The reason that you can stay there was because your tour guide would like to decrease his budget...More
Absolutely fabulous day with the crew. They had a personal shuttle ride to the hotel and from the hotel. Our host spoke strong English and is very good at making you feel comfortable. The drive to the elephants is about 90mins but could not be...More
