  • How it started ... In 2014, I had the most beautiful 3 days of my life. With my father, I went to E.S.T for the 3-day tour and was immediately thrilled with everything. I was speechless the first time I stood next to my elephant and felt its closeness. The staff were very friendly, answered all the questions I had and made me feel good at all times. The food was outstanding and every day had something new exciting. I will never forget the time spent there. In 2018, I applied for an internship, which I then took up at the beginning of October. I've had the most beautiful and exciting three months of my life. The people I lived with work with a lot of love and passion and I felt part of a big family from start to finish. Even though some days could be stressful, I always had a good feeling, as everyone was always on hand and offering their help and teaching me how best to do it. At the end of the day you sat as often as you went nice together and enjoyed the Thai cuisine. I recommend Elephant Special Tours to anyone who wants to experience the elephant up close in a special way. As a visitor or as an intern! Thank you for everything and the lovely time! I will come back, certainly!!!

  • It was a great experience with lasting memories. Also in the 2 day tour you learn a lot about elephants. The contact with E. S. T. was very good at all times. In advance, all questions were answered by e-mail, so that one drove well prepared to the camp. The supply on site was also excellent.
