  • Very nice place. Booked a meet the herd tour but according the web site you are supposed to watch a video before going out to elephants. That didn't happen and I can't think it is due to covid because if we all can ride next to each other on tractor, why can't we watch video with social distancing. We fed the elephants, take photos with them and we could touch them but if we want to know something we had to ask the guide. Feel that they could give me information etc. Otherwise it was an amazing experience to be between these gorgeous, massive, gentle animals. Keep up the good work of caring for the elephants!
  • Great to be up close with the elephants. The guides are very informative and kind. I thoroughly enjoyed it even if I felt a little awkward about the elephant feeding. Amazing being so close to such great creatures. Worth a visit if you are around. It takes one hour only. Actually more like 50minutes.
