Elephants and other animals are treated horribly. Stop animal cruelty in tourism by avoiding this place and others alike.

We have actually requested our non speaking driver to take us to the Hutsadin Elephant Foundation but instead we landed at the Elephant Village. So we just have to accept it. Overall it was a nice experience.
