A visit to this elephant park is a must. The guides are professional and really knowledgeable. The stars of the show are the elephants. Able to touch and feel them under the watchful eyes of the guides. A very special experience.

This place is the real deal. The elephants are not broken and all the workers are doing a great job. We learned so much and had fantastic close encounters.
