  • They have 3-4 elephants, much lesser than other places. But it is a well organized center. They have clear queue system. People monitor and send only few families to the mounting pad. Very quaint place. We went a bit early and it was not crowded. I hope they follow the same management style even during peak timing. Elephants were lovely, ride was good. The mahouts were a bit money minded and tried to sell elephant hair by plucking from the poor elephant's tail. Price for each ride per person is 400, decent pricing. We totally did 3 rides in 3 different places. This was quite satisfactory. Call and visit during off peak times. Children would love this.
  • It's good place for elephant ride. You should also try elephant shower. It gives an amazing experience. For that you should have extra clothes as they do not provide any clothes.
