“Elephant Trekking - Brilliant”
Reviewed 27 January 2009

Booked this tour the Elephant Trekking and Bamboo Rafting.

This visit to the Elephant Training Camp is a brilliant half day.
From start to finnish, starting when you arrive and cross the river on the rope bridge, feeding the elephants whilst everybody arrives. Then watching the elephants in the river with their bathing antics, followed by 'The Show' which is excellent.

The highlight of course is the Trekking on the elephants and having done elephant rides in India, I found this one to be best ever, you feel quite safe and the coming back is fantastic !

THis has been the very best part of a fantastic 3 week holiday to Thailand, well worth it. I didnt want to leave the elephant camp and cannot wait to go back again another day!

Good for all ages, and children would love this !

Northern Thailand is very beautiful too!
