My family and I went for the full day experience with the elephants, we didn't quite know what to expect and had no idea what a wonderful and memorable day it would end up being for all of us!! This is definitely one of the things that I would like to repeat once more in my life! Absolutely amazing day... More

This place is fabulous, they have two elephants which you can touch, stand beside, ride and interact with the elephants. The guides are so knowledgable and friendly , no question is a problem for them. Well worth the visit.

It is a well kept environment. The staff is very friendly and informative. They look well after the elephants. It was lovely to have an encounter with the elephants and to walk with them. We loved the time spend there

They even take you to where the two elephants sleep at night - which wasn't a huge necessity for me as I wasn't prepared for the smell that hit... More
