What people are saying about Phang Nga Elephant Park

An all-round successful trip, after a short visit to the museum, with collectibles of all kinds of life here, we were able to enjoy time with elephants in their natural habitat. After we were allowed to produce delicious vitamin bombs for the elephants. With them in the pouring rain - 6 of them, walking, feeding, bathing, mud skin care and showering. The guide is very attentive, he explains a lot and loves his job. The excursion in the four-hectare jungle was rounded off by a Thai buffet in the house. With a small cooking class for us. It is very nice that the elephants get so much naturalness and loving care every day. We were lucky enough to have a tour to ourselves. I would find the usual group size too much bustle. Definitely a recommendable excursion with great impressions.

It was wonderful. We were completely alone with no other tourists. At the beginning we fed the elephants and walked through the jungle with them - NOT RIDE! Then we took a mud bath together and later we scrubbed the elephants clean again. After we changed, we completed a small cooking class and we were served a hearty lunch. You didn't even get the feeling that the elephants were doing badly that day. The employees treated the animals with great care. I was really impressed and it gave me so much joy. In addition, the employees took a lot of videos and photos, which we all received free of charge by e-mail and as a farewell gift we even got souvenirs. I can only recommend 100%.

We had an excellent day with the elephants. Very good knowledgeable staff, all very well organised and finished off with a delicious meal. If you want to get up close and personal with elephants, this is for you, but be prepared to get wet and muddy when you bath with them !!

Authentic expetience. Touching these great animals, feeding and washing them is absolutely a unique adventure. Knowing that all elephants are free, no one rides or inslaver them is terific. The staff are professionals not flattering anyone. Highly recommanded Ariel Zachar
