Elephant Nature Park - Review

Set in a natural valley, bordered by a river, and surrounded by forested mountains is the Elephant natural park which serves as a home to rescued and rehabilitated elephants from all over the country. It is amazing to observe the daily routine of the elephants and a glimpse of rural life is worth capturing.

The park also aims to provide Rain forest restoration and cultural preservation along with protecting the endangered species.

  • Fantastic experience. We visited the Karen Elephant Retirement by Elephant Nature Park. The setting was stunning. We trekked as a group of 6 (max 10 or 12 so we got lucky but it is rainy season) with 2 adult female and a 5 year old male elephant. It was an amazing day. The elephants adored the sugarcane and banana treats, ensuring their attention. We completed the experience by playing with the elephants in the water. The guides were great and the lunch was delicious. The family living there were so sweet. The price is totally reasonable for the experience. I would highly recommend the Karen Elephant Retirement.

  • If you want to see elephants and experience them in a responsible way, this is the place to go. I was deeply touched by how respectful the elephants are treated (and the other animals they have here). It is a magical experience and a thousand times better then seeing them do stupid tricks or being used for riding. Go there if you have any interest in elephants (I stayed for a week in the volunteer program and loved it a lot)

  • We spent a great day here learning about the rescue of several Asian elephants. After "feeding" them, you will walk with a guide from elephant family to elephant family. The work they do here is outstanding. After the walk, a great vegetarian lunch is served. Note also that they offer a decent espresso.

  • Good- --the treatment of the elephants is exceptional. The park doesn't even let the tourists (that paid lots of money to go) get too close to most of them. We were only allowed to touch two. Bad- -Not what it is advertised: -Can't get close to the elephants -Cant even slightly touch the elephants -Can't even splash water at the elephants when they are bathing -Food was blend. -You basically don't know what you are booking because Elephant nature park has multiple locations. My friend booked the whole single day and was taken to the freedom 4 location where they let you play a little more with the elephants. I booked the same through the website and was taken to the north location where I couldn't even touch the elephants. - It gets boring after hours of just seeing the elephants from around 20 ft. I DO NOT RECOMMEND if you are the adventurous type that wants to play and get close to the elephants

  • A humane way of enjoying the elephants company while participating in the daily activities with the elephants such as feeding time, bathing, play, and of course photos. They really take care of their elephants and from what I could see, they are doing a great job. They shuttles us from our hotels and back. Vegan lunch included in the price. They also have a gift shop. Well worth the money and would come back again.
