We had a great visit. Two adults and two children. Our guide Khun Spy was great and we really enjoyed our ATV ride and then making food for and feeding the elephants. Highlight was then giving them a mud bath and a wash off in the river. A really great place with people who seem to care a lot about the elephants.

Den Elefanten geht es gut, man lernt viel und drumherum gibt es feste Sanitäranlagen und ein Restaurant. Die Menschen dort sind total lieb! Man sollte sich vorher allerdings gut mit Moskito-Spray einsprühen 😀

Wir hatten einen tollen Nachmittag in der Sanctury. Unser Guide war super und wir haben tolle Einblicke bekommen. Erst waren wir Essen für die Elefanten holen und haben einen Bananenbaum gefällt, anschliessend haben wir die Elefanten dann gefüttert und zum Schluss konnten wir nach einem Schlammbad noch mit ihnen in einem Fluss spielen. Wichtig ist zu erwähnen dass nur die Elefanten baden gegangen sind die auch wirklich Lust dazu hatten, hier werden die Elefanten zu nichts gezwungen.
