We had a extraordinary experience. It was so lovely to receive all your explanations, to feel your engagement for these elephants and to have such a close contact to these beautiful animals. thanks a lot and kind regards from Switzerland

We had a wonderful time at the elephant sanctuary! It was amazing to get so close to the animals and to walk with trunk in hand. We especially loved riding them too. We felt that they were very well looked after and happy, and it was great to have our very experienced and knowledgeable guide / leader. This is an experience well worth doing if you're in the area. We also got the DVD which is a lovely keepsake, although we would have liked to have our ride on there too. Thanks everyone!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Sanctuary. It was great to interact with the elephants who appeared very calm. The walk was interesting and everyone was offered time up close to the elephants. They had their little party pieces which added humour to the event. It was great to be able to feel them and then my wife and I rode them with their guides. for animals with such power they were very gentle indeed and we didn't feel intimidated at all.
