  1. What a touching film. Lek has done a miraculous sanctuary. The once abused elephants can live free from work and abuse. They are loved and respected. I think this is reflected in their lives at ENP!

  2. So glad I found this! Thank you. Could you please add a note with the names of the mahout and the elephants in his care?

  3. Many memories through this so beautiful vidéo ; I love E.N.P ; Lek has created this elephant heaven in love , respect and tenderness . The happiness of the elephants and other animals is touchable; Dam is indeed a very great mahout , dedicated to his elephant ” Navann ” , Thanks to all those who make this possible and looking forward to be back
