What people are saying about Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Pattaya
Really enjoyed the day, there was a bonus of a lovely top, making paper out of elephant poo which was brilliant and a really nice lunch. The staff were great, the only downside was the fact that there were quite a few staff ——- volunteers walking around and there was rubbish on the ground and all round where we were. I think the whole place needed a bit of a scrub down as everything was a bit grotty, and it would be nice to think that all the volunteers might spend a day gardening adding more greenery and doing a bit of landscaping. There are jungles nearby that are full of plants that could be transplanted, The grounds were quite bare, But overall still an interesting place.
You need to work on your marketing - everyone would’ve left you at least 300 baht as a contribution. I hope you can find a way to be more organised with your marketing! For example, we would have bought t-shirts, paid for the Elephant poo envelope and we would have signed up for a monthly donation fee going forward. Say $20 per month. This is not an option on your website either. I think you could raise a lot of money this way. I hope these pointers are useful.
Despite a very long 2 and a half hours in lots of traffic, our experience was amazing. From arrival to finish it was non-stop interactions with these amazing animals. They were sweat and gentle and playful. We were able to pet them, feed them, smear mud on them and us, and go in swimming with them. Food was wonderful. Staff we friendly and helpful and very kind to the elephants. A must for any vacation to Bangkok.
From start to finish this was an excellent day from the pick up on time to the free bottled water and experienced staff talking us through the elephants. Their passion and knowledge oozed throughout the day. Getting to feed and touch the elephants was amazing as well as getting to swim and bathe with the elephants. Completely faultless experience!!
This is a wonderful activity where you can get upclose to the elephants, wonderful animals. They are relaxed and treated well, as rescue elephants they have seen some bad stuff. It's quite a sight to stand right next to them, pat them, bathe them and give them treats.
