The majestic, entertaining creatures roam freely around the camp, and you are actively encouraged to pet and pose for a photo with them. Wander the grounds yourself and watch one of the many shows that happen on a daily basis. Go for a ride on one of the elephants, or take a full "mahout" (elephant keeper) course to learn more about caring for the creatures as well as their special place within Thai society and heritage.

  • This is the best elephant place I've been too. I love it that it's free admission, you don't have to spend a fortune to visit the elephants but you can donate. The free admission motivated me to spend more on food and feed every single elephant in the camp. Bought a few baskets and spent long time with the elephants. Loved every single one of them.
  • Fantastic place! Had such a wonderful time with the elephants here - it's perfect that admission is free, so to just see them costs nothing. We paid the 100 baht for a basket of food which was well worth it.
