There are several elephant camps from which to choose. This one is not as fancy as some and certainly not as overrun with large tour groups. The elephants play soccer and "paint" pictures and, of course, are available for a fun ride down the river...More

I love elephants and these 2 were just that and it was exciting as one will have a calf in 4 months. Most enjoyable.

Have you ever wanted to ride an elephant? Here's your chance. It may seem scary, but they're well trained. An adventure you'll never forget.

YES, I think so but you still have to pay the regular entrance fee, and transport to the park, they MAY pick you up at some hotels . Ask your hotel. But I think it's best to make a half day of it at least.
