Visitors like Vivian H. have shared their unforgettable experiences, mainly through programs like “Elephant Owner for a Day,” where they get hands-on lessons in elephant care, including grooming, feeding, and even riding.

Unlike many other elephant parks focused solely on tourism, Patara Elephant Farm places conservation and breeding management at the forefront.
