It was a very intimate experience that gave us an understanding of the bond between an elephant and his mahout (handler). If you are looking for an experience that goes a bit deeper than the typical tour then this is a must.
My best friend and I love elephants so this was our fourth elephant experience around the world. Nothing as come close to Phang Nga Elephant Park! It warmed our hearts to see the elephants treated like family.
Phang Nga Elephant Park is outstanding in their ethical treatment of the elephants and offers a rare and informative experience. An experience that really allows the individual to get to know the elephants. The Thai cooking lesson is also very enjoyable and the food that we prepared was delicious.
Absolutely beautiful set up and big thumbs up from a vet nurse with regards to welfare. Everyone at the park gets top marks for making my family and I feel welcome.
This was an unforgettable day! The elephants are clearly at home and well cared for. It was lovely plodding along on these huge and beautiful creatures at butterfly level through the trees.
We got to experience firsthand what being a mahout (handler) would be like. You get to wash them, feed them, play with them, ride them bare back and cook amazing Thai food.
The best four hours of wildlife interaction I have ever had. We had as much time as we wanted to feed, walk, groom, adore and even swim with the elephants.
The day I spent at Phang Nga Elephant Park has been the highlight of my holiday to Thailand. They care deeply about the health and well being of these magnificent creatures.
Had a superb family day with the elephants! The kids can’t stop talking about it. Highly recommend for anyone interested in visiting elephants in an environment that values animal welfare!
We want everyone to share our passion for the Asian elephant and its future. We believe strongly in human-elephant interaction and we encourage our visitors to describe their experiences at Phang Nga Elephant Park.
Dont normally do reviews, but had to and it gets a big five stars ⭐️.
An incredible experience and one that we will both cherish all our life, the animals are well looked after.
A day worth doing if you visit Thailand.
Loved every moment and couldn’t fault anything.

Plai Thanwa panicked because 2 drunken tourists scared him. Since then the baby elephant has been shamefully "disciplined" and is now chained to all four of his legs and his head is full of bloody wounds, probably from the bullhook.read more
what an amazing park. I had heard so many bad reports back in England about elephant sanctuarys but this one is truly amazing. The guides who are with you throughout your time there and the Mahoots who love there elephant with Devine passion and admiration and show so much respect and time for them. keep up the fantastic work you do and are doing to look after these elephants . without people like you the world would be a different place for them.
Thank you so much for letting us into your working life for the day .
Nicky and Ian Charles .
Thank you to Will (guide) and especially Paul (Mahoot ) for our magical photos xxread more
This place is amazing!!! Had such a great experience. Animals are treated well with love and kindness. And in return they are so gentle with people. We had elephant called Jana and she was lovely. Meeting baby elephant was also a highlight. Although she can not be touched as her mum is very protective as any mother would be:) she made us laugh as she was playful especially in the pool with her mom by getting on top of her and being cheeky:) everyone at the park is a star: the handlers are doing such a good job with animals, volunteers are very friendly, helpful and welcoming, food was delicious and everyone we met there had such a big smile on their faces, which made our experience great. BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU! You doing such a good job!read more

Great afternoon, awesome experience. English guides, Jess was a wealth of knowledge, Holly you were great too. Lovely lunch, plenty of fluids on hand. Elephants and mahouts are amazing. Barrame was out elephant, very big but gentle. Riding him was scary at first, but awesome. Bathing was such fun with them. Would highly recommend booking via website, combined tour would have not been enough time to appreciate these animals. 5/5read more
