Uplifting, fun & friendly.
We had such an amazing day today with Mr Pop and all of his staff! You can see how much passion they have for the elephants, and Mr Pop's story of how he came to aquire the animals just shows what a supremely good person he is!
I have a knee injury and everyone was so helpful - looking out for where I stepped and put my crutches, and pulling seats closer so I could still watch the elephants - the help was beyond expected & we're so grateful!
Wonderful santuary, people and elephants - if you're looking for an ethical place to see the animals, please make it this one!
Thank you for making our day!
The animals were amazing and so was all the staff. Truly a wonderful experience and recommend it for everyone. The elephants need you!!!
Witthaya was amazing. All staff included. The guide that picked us up from the hostel was great. She was extremely knowledgeable and kind. She also took incredible photos for us while we interacted with the elephants! Mr. Pop was the most hospitable host. Very kind and eager to share his love of elephants with the world. The elephants themselves were lovely. They greeted as we arrived and were more than willing to spend time with us. It was clear they enjoy their lives and are very happy at Witthaya. The last part of the tour was lunch provided to us, which was not only an added bonus but extremely tasty too! We would highly recommend this trip to anyone and everyone looking to spend time learning about and loving elephants.
