The truly fair Business to all. The Gachorgwa Elephant Camp is proud to be able to offer activities enabling our visitor to acquire the knowledge of the Karen on the care of elephants. The knowledge provided by this camp is accurate and conforms to theories regarding the health of elephants and mahouts and the environment they require.

This facility was truly amazing! It was a very personalized experience with an excellent guide. He obviously loves and cares well for the elephants and it shows. We had the experience of a lifetime riding, bathing, and caring for the elephants. It is a must!!

We had a great experience at Gachorgwa. Art, the 2 elephant keepers, as well as the photographer all do a wonderful job. We enjoyed the learning experience, feeding the elephants, the lunch and especially the ride and river bath! Completely recommend!

Had a fantastic day! We were picked up from our hotel and driven directly to the camp. Spent all day with two very friendly elephants. A delicious lunch was included and plenty of water. Very clean restroom facilities too. All in all highly recommended!
