We spent a full day at the elephant camp, rescued from the unethical camps where they are ridden. We fed them, walked with them (off-road and uphill - trainers recommended for this part) and mudded and bathed them. The owners would guide the elephants but not force them to stay long with us if they wanted to wander off. In the afternoon I went to sit by the mother and baby as I was allowed to do just on my own and they came to me. They are very gentle and the young ones playful! This place is great because they have five/six elephants and there was only 7 of us in the group! Would highly recommend! They also take photos of you throughout the day so you can just focus on enjoying yourself! :-)

Had an amazing half day visit to Into The Wild Elephant Camp with a great bunch of people. The guides were great and really care for the elephants. Pai was also very knowledgeable on the elephants and educated our group really well. Highly recommend.

The camp has 5 female elephants that are treated in an exemplary way. The elephants are very friendly and are interactive in the activities; trekking, feeding and bathing. The guide Desh was very knowledgable and spoke good English. The half day was long enough for our group, but I could happily have spent longer.

Elephants are truly cared for, the staff were so funny and welcoming, good to keep in small numbers so elephants are cared for properly, the staff had the right attitude to how elephants should be cared for and treated. Had an amazing day and was truly a great experience.
Would 1000% recommend the full day tour and I would say its value for
money and a true sanctuary to elephants.
