Could not recommend this elephant park enough! My partner and I had skipped all the other offers throughout Thailand and stumbled across this one while visiting Pakbeng, and we couldn’t be more happy about it. The elephants are very well looked after, the information given by the French woman was more than we could of asked for and extremely informative. You can spend the whole day here just looking at the elephants or hanging out around the place which is well maintained and set up. You can go for a trek, watch some locals doing handycrafts or have something to eat at the great restaurant on site which is very well priced! Spending time and learning about the elephants was one of the most memorable things we have done, we absolutely loved it!
Great experience!! Non-riding park where elephants can live in their natural environment :) I visited the Mekong Elephant Park in Pakbeng and it was sooo a good experience! Wendy, a french woman, is the manager of the park. From the beginning on you feel that elephants are her passion! I think it was a lot of work and love for her making the park to what it is now. They care really good about the elephants and let them live in their natural environment. In Pakbeng they can just be elephants! :) They don’t let the people ride anymore on the elephants. It‘s possible to walk with them, feed them or observe them while they‘re taking a bath in the river. I booked a private tour (possible between 7-11h in the morning). There are different private packages you can choose, and the prices are really fair!! But you can also just come between 11-16h and observe the elephants in their leisure time (20 USD). I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. I think in other places the Elephant Parks are reaaally crowded! But here in Pakbeng most of the tourists just stay for the night in between the two-days-trip on the slowboat to Luang Prabang and skip the region of Pakbeng. So if you wish to observe elephants without touristic tours - that‘s your place!! The starting point to cross the river is at Sanctuary Pakbeng Lodge. You can find more detailed information on their website. They also have a really good restaurant in the Park. Thank you Wendy & team for that great day!! :)
