Had an amazing time at The Lake elephant nursery and sanctuary. Got to spend my morning with my new elephant friends, Anna and Yai and Maya was a wonderful guide and teacher. The elephants here are truly treated well and such a treat to feed them, spend time and even get into the water and help wash them. Plus, lunch was delicious and loved being able to learn and make Thai papaya salad. Yum! Highly recommended to anyone coming to Phuket!

Awesome!!! The guide was funny and interactive. He, along with the trainers were very informative and accommodating of everyone's needs, especially since our group were all diverse and communicated differently.

You get to feed the elephants (food you cut yourself), make mud which you massage onto the elephant and you get to wash the elephant.

Maya was an excellent host. Such an intimate experience only 5 of us with two elephants, the bathing them was superb!

It was a very nice tour. The long journey was really worth it. It was a successful day.
