A very rare find in Thailand. After a lot of research we found “Elephant Rescue Park”- a totally ethical Elephant Park. 5 rescued from the terrible circuses/riding/logging in Asia � The demand from these places comes from tourists - so don’t support it. This park...More

My wife and I booked a private afternoon here and it was worth every penny. The tour itself is as described on the website, although they probably don’t do it justice - for example, they say they “provide lunch”, which actually translates to sitting out...More

I only have a couple Elephant parks to compare it with. I have been to one in Thailand and one in Laos, both of which involved some level of cruelty to these beautiful beasts. Each of those emphasised mankind's dominance over the elephants. You won't...More
