We just came back from here. Went there by motorcycle to see and feed the animals if possible, not ride them. We heard this could be done for about 60 Baht. There were two elephants, one chained to a pole and the other one was giving a ride for two tourists. We were aloud to look at the elephants but... More

After being to two different elephants camps in north Thailand and enjoying the experience, my friend wanted to visit one when when she come to visit me in the south. My friend chose this place after reviews she read online but it was a sad poor hour experience. The elephants are tied up by short chains or ropes all day... More

The hotel booked this place for us and I am surprised as its not exactly professional but more about the money. There is a guy pointing people where to go and before you know it, being asked to get on an elephant. Having not been near an elephant before this was quite strange. The ride itself was good, the rider... More

First the employees (exept for the driver) were really unfriendly. We stopped the elephant trekking aber 5 minutes, because we felt so sorry for the elephant. He didn't do what the ranger wanted him to do so he hit him with a hook so the elephant yelled, because of the pain. Afterwards we just wanted to relax next to the... More

Our family of 4 booked the 1-2 hour trek for 800 baht per person because my daughter was very curious to ride an elephant. The company picked us up at the hotel in a nice van and drove us to the camp. We were immediately whisked onto elephants. This was efficient, but we barely even saw or were introduced to... More

. You can book from agent or straight away contact the place. I choose to direct contact in their website. They will pick you at your hotel Why not go with agents? Because you will be put with other people that you don't know. And it will your time when they need to pick up all other customers. 2. Starting... More

I had looked on here months before and saw good reviews, I tried to dig deeper but couldn't find much info online. As a huge elephant lover I found the experience horrible and now regret not just saying no and turning around as I had been close to doing. We cut the journey short as we felt that the elephants...

The staff was rude on the phone in both Thai and in English. We came here on a rainy day and didn't want to ride the elephants. They said it was too cold to bathe with them, no big deal, so we just paid to feed them and spend a little time with them. As soon as wee approached the... More

We, went to the Nosey Parker's Elephant Camp after reading good review about it and wanted to give our children the experience riding elephant in a natural environment. There were about 15 of us, including children. When we arrived there were only 3,4 people waiting for their ride. After explaining that we had to check out from our hotel at... More

by far one of the most depressing and outrageous places I ve ever been. The care takers do not take care of animals, they bit them constantly. I recommend to no one and I hope they closed it soon
