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.
What an experience! It’s something as a family we will never forget. Emily was great from the start, making us feel welcome and very informative. Spending time with the elephants feedings then, bathing them and seeing where they live. Lunch was also amazing!
Can recommend it highly enough. Very special experience.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
Up there at the top of my most memorable experiences - a truly wonderful day interacting with these elephants. Can highly recommend taking the time to travel to Phang Nga small family run sanctuary where the elephants are beautifully looked after. Their keepers live with them 24/7 - upmost respect for the whole family.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.

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 .
