Fun and friendly elephant handlers. Cultural show afterwards was better than expected and you can take photos with performers afterwards

We arrived and could buy bananas to feed the elephants. You could pay 100 Bhat to have a photo of an elephant pick you up by his trunk. The elephant ride can either be 45 mins long or 1 1/2 hour long, we did the 45 min which was long enough for me as not very comfortable but it is... More

We visited the park, and I took my son on an elephant ride. It was all going fine, when half way through the rider asked for a tip, when I offered him 200 baht, he shook his head, and asked for more! Made me a little cross, as we had paid 800 baht each for the ride. Would not go... More

Overall it was a nice one experience. Went for the full package including what they call "rafting" and dinner priced initially at 2600. The elephant ride is the best part and if I had to do it again will definitely not go for the full package as "rafting" ended up being a pond crossing while pulling a rope, and dinner... More

Tried the elephant ride and the rider kept asking for money the moment we took off. The elephant village is very small as compared to the Phuket . There is no river or hills, just a normal path. Some big holes with smoke coming out and rattan made house. overall ride can complete in 5 to 8 minutes. very short!... More

Visited for a few hours while on a cruise. The elephants were amazing, we bought bananas and fed them, took plenty of pictures. The keepers took them in the river for a bath and one kept blowing water on everyone, it was great fun. Then it was time to ride on the back of one, with out a basket. I'm... More

Tried the shooting range, a little pricey. But worth trying, as they have different range of Guns to choose with different price. Elephant ride was little too lengthy even though I took 1hr, so not worth trying if you are in rush of time. Little disappointed as didn't manage to see any little (Baby) elephants. Hopefully will be able to... More
