I went there during summer . It was a great place. It was new experience for me to see elephant that close more »
This is the real deal. People here give three overworked / old elephants a nice place to retire. Every other place would just expose the elephants to more people to increase the profits. Not the Krabi elephant sanctuary. Limited number of visitors (maximum 20 at a time). Great English guide. Gentle caretakers. Amazing and super friendly animals. Great interaction. You are actually helping - really HELPING - the sanctuary to prepare food and feed / clean the elephants. It was an absolutely amazing day. And I am absolutely convinced that the money is very well spent here.
Incredible experience, I highly recommend. The guide was very informative and welcoming. I was also impressed with the facilities, there are clean showers, toilets and lockers. The program was very well thought out. You get to be real close to the elephants and pet them. They look happy and under great care.
