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.
