Loved our experience and the guide was informative.
By Clara L for Luang Prabang 2 Days + Ban Nayang 1 Day on 22 Nov, 2022
We had the best time. Our elephant leader giving us the initial talk was so knowledgeable and passionate. The mahouts were lovely and took so many brilliant photos and videos that we will treasure forever. The elephants are clearly well loved and cared for. The food was fantastic also and all the staff were great including for the kayaking.

This was an excellent experience, with the opportunity to ride an elephant humanely (on his shoulders with no Howda). Lunch was delicious. Just make sure you ask what is happening next as we felt communication was a little lacking! It didn’t spoil the day though
By Sue T for F08 MAHOUT BASIC TRAINING PROGRAM on 14 Nov, 2022
C’était une magnifique expérience, un très bon séjour dans un lodge merveilleux avec des baies vitrées donnant sur la rivière, des repas excellents, un personnel aux petits soins et très à l’écoute, un jacuzzi à disposition. Le partage avec les éléphants était mémorable, c’est une petite structure à taille humaine avec peu de visiteurs (le tourisme a dû mal à reprendre post période covid). Cette ferme d’éléphants mérite un séjour avec une nuit sur place : la nature est belle, l’endroit est très calme et bien entretenu, les étoiles sont bien visibles du fait du peu de pollution lumineuse, les éléphants sont proches. Merci à tout le staff de ce bel endroit

Quite a long journey but really worth the effort. The plain of jars was a really amazing place. Really friendly people and great extra trips like the silk farm. Guide and driver were excellent and always intresting food to try along the way. The guest house we stayed at during our trip was very good.
