WHAT VISITORS SAY ABOUT US…

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.

Jaclyn M

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.

Peter S

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.

Gemma Louise

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.

Karen G

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.

James Sansom

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.

Tim Tyson

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.

Tracey Rye

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!

The staff are all so enthusiastic about treating their elephants ethically and humanely. The elephants are never forced into doing things that are unnatural, they clearly enjoy the visits and attention they get. Such a privilege to be able to interact with these amazing animals 💛🐘read more

So today I did what I think might be the most beautiful experience I’ve ever encountered. At Phang Nga Elephant Park, the treatment of these lovely ladies is absolutely FIRST priority, all care and interactions are ethical and sustainable. I started the day off petrified after being afraid of larger animals due to a dog attack a few months back but now I can’t wait to return again, thanks to not only the beautiful elephants, but the amazing staff and volunteers (especially Amy, who’s first day it was I believe! Thank you for your patience!) My beautiful elephant today was Tong-Sri which translates to “Golden Lady” (I think?) and she was super gentle and laid back 🐘😍☀️ Today honestly changed me and I’d love to return again soon 🙏read more

One of the best experiences of my life coming here. 5* I can not state how ethical this place is compared to others we searched before going, wasn’t disappointed as this is such a beautiful place for these gentle giants to now spend their time comparing to their past ‘lives’ in other places that didn’t treat them like royalty. We spent time learning about the elephants and their behaviours, preparation of some of their food, either walking with or sitting on the elephants up the path to where they get snacks of bananas :) -(note: not on chairs, but bareback so not to harm them) and then finally spending time scrubbing and washing the elephants in the pond. To finish we then had a beautiful lunch and a small tour of where the mahouts lived with their family’s.read more

Visiting the elephant park was truly one of the best experiences of my life. Everyone at the family-run Park go out of their way to make your experience very personal, relaxed & fun. Mike was our guide and we were paired with Tong-Sri and her Kwan-Chang Jak. We learnt so much throughout the morning and came away inspired. The dedication, love and care for these elephants (and the entire elephant population!) is very clear to see. The plans in place to make the Park even better are very exciting and I’m sure my partner and I will be back in the future to see them all. Thank you all for such a wonderful day!read more

This place is absolute perfection, no better way to go meet the elephants. Elephants are treated so well which is rare for this type of tour in Thailand. The staff where so friendly and informative, the food was also excellent which I wasn’t expecting. Defiantly worth paying the extra money to go here than the other cheaper ones you might see available. Our Kwan-Chang (jak) and out elephant (Tong-Sri) where both superb and Mike was an excellent photographer.read more

Absolutely amazing experience. Highly recommend this elephant park, the elephants mean everything to their handlers, lovely to see these gentle giants being treated with so much love and care. Such a wonderful experience from start to finish, learnt so much about the elephants, very informative guide answered every question we had. Not only did we get to ride the elephants through the jungle but got to bathe with them in the pool and feed them. One of the best experiences I’ve ever encountered! Thank you for making my daughter and me feel so welcome in to your village.read more
