“Nature is at home here!”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

I was lost for words when i took the elephant ride. For the first time in my life im riding an elephant and its all in Kerala. The elephants looked a lot at home, while i was scared to the bone i still enjoyed it. Im not much sure abt the prices but then who would want to miss it for the world.

“Positive elephant experience”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Our experience at Elephant Junction was fine and we did not witness any problems with the animals - rather they seemed to be treated with care and in good condition. I could agree with the cost being a little high however it is in a lovely area. Overall we had a nice positive experience with our elephant :)

“Elephants look happy and cared for”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

All three of us boarded the elephant and had a nice long strole nothing strenuous for the elephant in a circle through a forest?wood/jungle. The man leading the elephant told us about the surrounding and stopped every now and then for the elephant (Maria) to pose and he took photo's of us. We took more photo's at the end standing infront and next to Maria while she was instrcuted to lift her trunk. I would recommend.

“Sad for me to see.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Depressing-Please Avoid. June 2014 review says it best! Please read it, I wish I had before going!

The animals should be cared for with respect and kindness. I had to leave because it was heartbreaking.

“Last chance to ride an elephant”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This amazing place is home to elephants and loving Mahouts who take care of their animals for life. A ride in the forest is an absolute must and it may be that such rides are now getting less and less due to animal rights pressure. We could see no evidence of mistreatment, abuse or neglect. These massive creatures are gentle and would not do as asked if they were not kindly treated. The ride was amazing, short and a little uncomfortable but truly an experience that should not be missed. The staff are very attentive and there are demonstrations of a working elephant. After all that, you can bathe with an elephant, give it a scrub and receive a shower in return.
An excellent place to be up close and personal with pachyderms. Truly amazing.
