“Amazing”
Review of Elephant Sanctuary

Elephant Sanctuary
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is an experience everyone should do, to be able to interact with elephants, touch them, walk with them is amazing. The staff are amazing, and treat the animals with care.
It gives you a better understanding of the elephant spending time with them.

We did half day there and it was just fun to learn about the elephants, do some stuff with them and to have the opportunity to really experience them.
The staff there was great and kind and we really recommend to visit this place for people that simply love animals :)

We went to this attraction because it is a sanctuary. The two elephants we met had been rescued. They have become friends and cannot be separated. It was so much fun to see their behaviours and walk with them. They have learned to trust those who work with them and have as close as possible way to live their lives there. Lots of land. Not like being in the wild but better then some places where forced to do tricks and chained most of the time. Sad in a way but better than being rode and in circuses.
