A beautiful and rewarding day. Up close and personal with these gentle giants. The drive is so worth the opportunity to interact -- feed, walk, bathe and swim -- with these beautiful rescued elephants. Go!

Wonderful day and great project!
Feb 2020
It was a great day. Journey from Bangkok is pretty long: 2.5 hours! But it is really worth it. This center has currently 7 elephants. You arrive in the morning and after briefing, you prepare food and feed the elephants. After a 1 to 2 hours treck in the park, you get back to the center and have a very tasty lunch. After you take elephants to a mud hole and play in the mud with them. Next activity: swimming and playing in the Kwai river! Then back to the center and after a snack for elephants, it is time to say bye-bye. Elephants are happy and very well taken care of. They sleep in a large cage but are not attached. Handlers do not hurt them, they push them and pull them gently. If they do not want to move, they are not forced to. They can go wherever they want. It is a great project and needs our support. Of course it is 2X more expensive but sooooo much better than the other "classic" elephants parks for tourists which torture elephants. I recommend 100% !

A Memorable Day
Nov 2019 • Couples
Elephants go back to the center for being fed by visitors (who learn in the process) but roam free in a marge area on River Kwai for most of the day. They eat, play, and swim in the river. They are very friendly and visitors can actually swim with them. It is a most humane place that has banned riding on the elephants, shows, etc. The animals look very happy. The visitors too.

Absolutely loved it!
Nov 2019
This was the most amazing experience. The elephants here are all rescued from different situations. The mahoots/handlers each had an elephant that they would watch over however they were rarely with the elephant and would watch from a distance to make sure that the elephant wasnt in any danger. These elephants are treated very kindly and were allowed to wander off and do what they please. One of the elephants is blind so they don't allow visitors to go too close to her but they make sure you know which one she is. They also had a handler with that elephant at all times to make sure she was ok and to guide her to the grass field and through the forest.

We got to prepare rice balls and watermelons for the elephants before feeding them. After that, we spent a good hour or so walking around in the forest with the elephants and learning more about them and each elephants backgrounds. We were taken back for lunch which was a nice variety of food that they had made. After Lunch, we walked back through the forest and down to the river where the elephants were so we could swim and bathe them. It truely was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to spend time with elephants.

Our driver for the private transfer was really nice too. He arrived on time for pick up and made sure to stop along the way for a toilet break. He waited the whole time at the Elephant Haven until we were ready to leave as well.
