This was the cutest and wholesome experience! 1. Easy pick up from the hotel! Our hotel didn’t show up on the pick up option but Get your guide and the tour company was able to accommodate and pick up us no problem. 2. The park was super clean and welcoming. Felt very authentic and that it was really all about the elephants. Love that about this place. 3. Our tour guide was amazing. She was incredibly sweet and made the experience so fun and very informative. While we got our hands dirty making protein balls for the new elephant rescues she took lots of pictures for us throughout the activity. 4. Great way to support small family owned and new sanctuary. If you’re looking to spend just a few hours seeing elephants this is for you! Overall, LOVE this experience! And it feels great to say you volunteered making food for the elephants. On the shorter side but still felt like you have enough time with the elephants and taking pictures with them. Highly, highly recommend!

This was a most enjoyable couple of hours. Noi is an amazing lady with an obvious and genuine love for the elephants. We prepared the elephants nutritional supplements while Noi gave us a huge amount of information about delivered with a passion that was infectious. She is doing amazing work at her rescue centre and I strongly suggest that anyone who is concerned with elephant welfare, go and see Noi and her beautiful elephant sisters and support her brilliant project of rescuing elephants from cruelty and mistreatment.

The experience in general was mostly pleasant, all the staff was kind and helpful, answering all questions and giving a nice and fun tour around elephant home. The very enjoyable part of this tour is the fact that you could see the elephants really close up, and it’s completely safe since before they let the elephants out to the tourists, the make sure the elephants are trustworthy. The transportation was also satisfying, the seats were pretty basic, but comfortable enough for a short drive in a minivan.

The best day of our lives! These guys here do the most amazing job looking after these majestical animals. We loved every single second of our tour. Cannot wait to visit again. I would recommend visiting these elephants to everyone. Just out of this world. A memory we will hold in our hearts forever. ❤️❤️

Отличное мероприятие, рекомендую всем, особенно кто с детьми путешествует. Слонов можно кормить, гладить, купаться с ними. Очень интересно и познавательно.
