I've read the negative reviews about this park and I have to say I strongly disagree. As a real animal lover I had reservations about this trip as I wasn't sure if it was just a gimmick but I'm pleased to say from what I saw the elephants were truly cared for by people who clearly had a close bond with them.
Do not go to see an elephant show, do not ride the elephants...if you do you are partaking in their cruel treatment...go to the elephant retirement park instead!
The experience allows you to feed them and wash them. They are such gentle creatures and they enjoyed the mud bath so much...they were making squeaking noises which is what they do when they are happy.
I arrived at the retirement park feeling apprehensive and I left feeling comforted that these lucky few were being genuinely cared for.
