Rude staff, poor quality performance. We have been to many elephant camps in Thailand and Laos. This one is lowest on quality standards. So if you have never seen elephants then it’s ok to visit else skip this one

Elephant Camp was exciting and you not only get to see and touch the elephants but even feed them! We could see little kids feeling so happy feeding the elephants. We stayed there for a few minutes.
