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.

    Awesome experience! The half day tour was just enough for us to spend time and learn stuff about these gentle giants. We got to feed and bath with them. In the sanctuary the elephants are well taken cared of: no riding and whipping. It was all worth it!
  • Yuling 11 Nov 2018
    It was truly a magical and unforgettable experience to be able to interact with the elephants so up close. My family and I really enjoyed the half day activity! :)
  • Oi Kin 8 Nov 2018

  • Chia Yu 7 Nov 2018
    It’s a wonderful tour, people treat elephants nice here. And elephants are friendly. You can touch,hug even kiss them. A really great experience that you need to experience by yourself than you can understand what i feel.
  • Soon Wai 6 Nov 2018
    The pickup is on time, we got up on a song theow (Red taxi) and begin with the 1.5 hour journey. There is a breakpoint on the way, where everybody can take a break and buy something to eat. Finally, we arrived at the elephant sanctuary, greated by the guides. There are 2 of them and they are like super nice and helpful, sharing about their knowledge regarding to the elephant, what to do and not to do, and end up with a "surprise". Overall it is a good half day spent with the 🐘
  • Christine 4 Nov 2018
    We opted for the half day visit and enjoyed watching and interacting with these majestic animals. Our guide was open to any and all questions and photos were shared soon after our visit. Please keep in mind that the ride to the sanctuary is a bumpy one at times and not the most comfortable.
  • Xabier 4 Nov 2018
    Great experience being so close to the animal feeding them
  • azreena 4 Nov 2018
    It was an amazing experience! We fed the elephants banana and played with them in mud. It’s really great to know that they are well taken care of. And our guide,Jackie was really funny, friendly and attentive.
