  • Amazing experience with the three elephants! Currently there are 2 teenagers which are quiet picky with the food which you will serve them - really funny though! Then you will see the 40 years old...

  • My sister and I visited this sanctuary 15/11/22. We were greeted by Daeng who informed us on the history of the sanctuary and the three beautiful elephants that were there currently. He told us about the elephants, what to expect and their behaviour so we keep safe as well as them. I could instantly tell Daeng and the keepers truly loved and looked after the elephants. We were able to feed them, walk with them and lastly bathe them which they loved! This was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I highly recommend visiting this sanctuary. Thank you Daeng!
  • Went during first week of June 2022 with my husband for our babymoon. Highly impressed with the guide Maya, the nursery and the measures taken to ensure that the elephants were happy. Learnt a lot about elephants and as we were the only ones in the group, we had both elephants (Sanui and Lulu) to ourselves. The elephants were gentle even though they were saved from really bad backgrounds. The guide Maya, shared their back story at the beginning and we were able to understand how these elephants came to be at the sanctuary. To be able to see the elephants roaming around the sanctuary with the guidance of their mahouts was a very good experience. Their mahouts did not use hooks or sticks but instructions which the elephants understood. After the roaming around in the forests with the elephants, there were shower facilities and we could change to go into the lake with the elephants. The elephants loved the water and loved being scrubbed by us. After that experience, they taught us how to make papaya salad and was treated to a lovely lunch by the lake. Everything was at a good pace and we weren't rushed at all. All in all, I loved the experience and will definitely go again even though it is pricier than other "sanctuaries". Thank you for the wonderful time!
