Elephant conservation holiday in Thailand
Fantastic!!...Being so closely involved with the elephants, and learning so much about these wonderful animals! (more)Helen Baxter
The holiday was fantastic. The highlight of the trip was, without doubt, the three days we spent getting up close and personal with elephants. It was a truly magical experience, and a privilege to interact so closely with such noble and intelligent creatures. Unforgettable. (more)Nicola Jane
For me this was an excellent experience which lived up to my expectations and more. Plenty of variety and personal challenge. An excellent tour guide/escort who was knowledgeable and lovely to have with us. Gave me a good understanding of Thai culture and close up working with elephants. (more)Hannah Wilson

Volunteer with elephants in Thailand
Memorable parts? The whole trip was absolutely amazing. From the two days in Bangkok to the two weeks spent with the my Thai family and elephants in the elephant village. It is a trip my daughter and I will never forget. The most memorable moments for me must be riding my elephant into the river, washing her and afterwards as she grazed the afternoon away along the sides of the paddy feeds in the huge tropical landscape. Tips? To do it! It is an unbelievable way to get in touch... (more)Katerina Hudspeth

Volunteer with elephants in South Africa
Amazing! It was my dream to work with elephants. It really was a trip of a lifetime. I learnt so much and made a few great friends out there which I still keep in contact with now. (more)Melisa Dora
The holiday was the most amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it. I had an incredible time working with the elephants, the staff at the Park and the other volunteers. I also had the opportunity to do some fantastic trips and excursions in my free time culminating in a tandem skydive which was amazing! (more)Hannah Grigson
Having the opportunity to interact with the elephants was the most memorable part. (more)Evie Jones

Elephant conservation in Thailand
My holiday was the best experience of my life, so much so I wasn't ready to leave and got very upset when the time came to leave. I fell in love my elephant Campion and Boonma and his family welcomed me with open arms. Such good hearted people. The experience with them added to my amazing experience and I would recommend anyone try this experience. I would give this experience 10 out of 10 there was nothing I feel could of been better except for me booking longer! (more)Debbie Field
Thoroughly enjoyed - The baby elephant playing-a real privilege to see! (more)Amanda Patrick
It was the best holiday I have ever experienced. My daughter and I cried when we left the elephant camp on the last day. We built up very strong bonds with our elephants, their owners and thier families. A very happy, emotional experience. We will be going back to visit them all soon. (more)Sarah Middleton

Elephant conservation holiday, Thailand
Being with the elephants and their handlers. Having the big bull elephants walk past you, just inches from your face, leaving you to feel completely small and vulnerable as these pre-historic like mammals move by with grace, softness, power and majesty! (more)Georgina Hickman
What a wonderful educational experience and to feel you are putting something back into the preservation of these magnificent creatures. (more)Sharryn Salkilld
A great experience. I haven't travelled alone before but I soon made friends and the staff were great. (more)Paul Gramlick
