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.

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!

5 star Great day day learning about the Ethical care and welfare for Elephants in south Thailand at Phang Nga Park. We... health checked, fed, walked, washed and played with them for over 4 hours.... amazing place well worth a visit. There’s is so much misinformation out there so it was refreshing to learn and see first hand just how things have ( and are ) changing ❤️❤️read more

My husband booked the trip as a surprise for my 50th birthday, knowing my love for elephants. I was so excited to spend... the day at the park & certainly wasn’t disappointed. From the moment we entered the staff were amazing, giving detailed background of how the park was started. The elephants are treated fantastic by their handlers, the bond between them shines through. This is one place I would certainly recommend anyone visit, the care & passion for the elephants is a pleasure to see. I feel privileged to have spent my birthday with these beautiful gentle giants. Memories I will treasure. Keep up the amazing work.read more

Fantastic Day spent here with 2 great guides Jess and Kelsey and our Wang Chang Jack not forgetting the beautiful Tong... Sri. This is a must see if you are visiting Thailand a proper ethical Elephant park where the animals are put first. When we left Jack was putting Tong Sri into the jungle for some roaming time, Jack was riding his motorbike and she was following him up the road on her own free will. The bond here between the Wang Chang and their elephant is incredible !!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

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
