What To Expect

The elephants of Thailand are famous all over the world, and there's no better way to truly have a memorable experience with these gentle giants than a visit to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary in Chiang Mai. Famous for their ethical, no-riding method of giving visitors an experience with these gentle giants, visitors will be able to make unforgettable memories of being a part of their lives. Upon arriving at the sanctuary, visitors are greeted with refreshments and valuable information about the elephants' dietary habits and the good work that the sanctuary does. Visitors will don traditional Karen tribe clothing as their day with the elephants begin, and be able to assist in preparing the elephants' food and feeding it to them. Guests are free to play, interact, and take photos with these elephants, all while being able to learn about how they had come to the sanctuary, their rescue story, and how more elephants could be protected from abusive practices. Fancy some good clean fun? How about a mud spa with the elephants? You'll get to jump in with them and then bathe them in the river afterwards to get them nice and clean. If you like having more time with the elephants, you can opt for the One Day Walk which will let you visit more camps and meet more elephants to spend time with! After a good meal, you'll be easily and safely conveyed back to your hotel, knowing that you have had a truly safe and ethical experience and have contributed to making a difference in the elephants' lives.

    Wow! What a great day we had with elephants! A must do activity!
  • Alliso* 29 Jul 2017
    Great day with the elephants. A very well done experience pampering elephants and getting up close and personal with them. A wonderful lunch as well. I recommend the full day experience. Loved the day, along with my 2 children.
  • Ada*** 26 Jul 2017
    I thought the half day was the perfect amount of time spent with the elephants. The sanctuary really seemed like they treated the animals well, which was encouraging.
  • Jasper*** 23 Jul 2017
    Awesome and unique experience. Plus we received the voucher within 3 hours and it was accepted on the smartphone.
  • HUNG-TA* 17 Jul 2017
    impressive experience
  • Rebecc* 15 Jul 2017
    Had the greatest day ever ! if you are in Chiang Mai this place is definitely worth a visit . Great value for money ! also if you can I would advise to print the voucher out , but don't worry if not ! it is worth every penny!
  • Regin* 7 Jul 2017
    Easily the highlight of our trip in Thailand. We couldn't count how many "awwww"s we uttered because of the Elephants. It was also convenient since they pick and drop you off at your hostel. Everything about this trip was enjoyable- feeding and giving the elephants a bath, the food, and the freebies. I also liked that the orientation was given in a lively manner such that you would remember every bit of information that the guide was sharing. This is really a great alternative for tourists who are aware of the sad and disheartening truth about the conventional elephant tourism in Thailand. I would definitely recommend it to my friends 😊

    Amazing experience ! V
  • Felix*** 2 Jul 2017
    We had an amazing time with Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. The people were so nice, friendly and helpful. Our five year old was scared at first and our driver, who is a part of the whole experience once we arrived, helped ease her fears. Picking her up, carrying her through tricky areas to walk, bringing her up to the elephants and showing her it was ok. The lunch was very delicious. The ride to and from is in an open air truck. We were in the back of the truck and it's quite a long ride there. It wasn't the most comfortable ride but it was a fun experience that my kids will keep talking about. This sanctuary really cares about their elephants. I wanted to visit a place that did not hurt or ride the elephants and we definitely found the right place. The elephants are happy and loved! No chains, no whips, nothing inhumane. You won't be disappointed! ❤️

    Good tour. Elephants seemed to be treated very well. English speaking guide, very easy to communicate. Fun, interactive and up-close with elephants!
