  • A fantastic experience on our half day tour with Mandalao. Walking with two elephants exploring their own choices and seeing their individual personalities was a gift. We learned a lot about elephant ...  more »
  • A wonderful day in the jungle with the 2 elephants. Our guide was a bit tired after a night out (out of him). Nor were all of his statements about one with those of the Thai leader correct. We had a long conversation with him, very interesting, he knows the family Knie (Zoo Rapperswil) and explained to us how important it is to borrow and exchange the elephants in order to prevent the inn breeding. That, too, is very expensive. We gladly paid the price for the full day trip only we were not as promised max 4 pers. but whole 9 !!! only in the afternoon we were alone. I don't think it's fair!! At the waterfall we were 2' and we weren't asked if we wanted to cool down. Visiting the village is all about selling the goods. The guide asked us to buy and he determined the prices (acting as translators ok but do not determine price ) He himself took off the shoes and lay down. We felt uncomfortable in front of these children who looked at us sadly and silently pointed at the goods. The lunch was delicious. We have the beautiful memory with the animals (there would be the full score for that)

  • This is one of the best experiences you can have while visiting Laos. People should not be riding elephants like they are some sort of carnival attraction. This place gets it right. An excellent experience with conscientious staff and great facilities. So good to interact with happy elephants.
  • This is the only elephant sanctuary worth going too in Luang Prabang. There is no riding allowed. Within 5 minutes of speaking with one of thier representatives you will understand why this is important. they rescue elephants from the surrounding camps, elephants that have been overworked so long the people riding them start to ask questions like "why are the elephants we are riding so skinny". Take the time to just speak with one of the representatives before you consider any other camp/sanctuary.
