Customer Reviews

The overall experience was good as usual, very friendly and knowledgeable staff make it worthwhile. The only issue I have is the number of people on the tour has grown drastically since my last visit, making it feel very impersonal, quite crowded, and definitely less enjoyable. I understand the need for revenue, but fewer people per group would be far more preferable. - Michael Higgo

It was my third great experience - every time I feel better ! Beautiful elephants - great surroundings - knowledgeable people. I hope I can visit the sanctuary soon again! - Agnes
