We in fact did the all-day Elephant riding experience and saw the bungalows for rent to stay ... but I wouldn't stay anyway, too far from LP and I think one day is enough. A person we met in LP started the 3-day experience and left a day early after questioning what they were really doing here (helping the elephants). I didn't want to share or tell my kids because we all had a good time. Stick to a day or 1/2 day visit, actually as I say a day may well be enough. Got the impression that except for groups the accommodation is not alot used in any case.
