    It was a wonderful experience to get up close to these magnificent, majestic and gentle giants. How wonderful that people actually pay to pamper these rescue animals - feeding and bathing them all day, even making medicine balls and taking some measurements to monitor their growth. What a contrast to the abuse that they received before coming here! Guides were knowledgeable, explaining pretty well what goes on in the sanctuary. They were also great at taking photos. Just hand them your phone or camera. There's actually an official photographer and all photos will be in a Dropbox folder available to everyone. Transportation was in a semi-enclosed jeep rather than a van so it can get bumpy. I got dizzy from the inward facing direction and dreaded the trip back to town. But it didn't take anything away from the experience. Lunch was simple but tasty and filling - white rice, veggie curry, potatoes, fried tofu and fried chicken. The whole day program was done at a relaxing pace. Worth it!

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.

    Amazing experience. It's a "must do". Just be aware that the journey to the elephant camp is with a Jeep not a van.
  • HAZELLE JOY CHAVARRIA 10 Feb 2019
    I was with my family and we really had fun. We experienced happiness with the elephants as we feed them and play with them in the mud and river. There is a slight trekking. It was difficult for my dad because of his age but there were 4 locals who helped him get by. Everyone is so nice.
  • Ceferino III 4 Feb 2019
    Worth the experience! Recommended to try if you are in Chiang Mai. Friendly staff, delicious food, and lovely elephants!
  • Martin 3 Feb 2019

  • Netanel Yosef 3 Feb 2019
    very nice and kind people in the group. The Elephants were amazing! loved any minute of it. absolutely recommended
  • Christine 30 Jan 2019
    The tour guides are nice and good in English. They shared the lives of the rescued elephants in a way that everyone can understand. The agency is also helpful, they accommodated our needs for the tour. I highly recommend this sanctuary.
  • Kean Poh 28 Jan 2019
    Love to see the elephants in a 'protected natural habitat'. A fun day with them
  • Jae Ho 27 Jan 2019
    Feeding, mingling, bathing and mud bath with elephants were wonderful. Also, good to be part of a great cause to rescue and to provide sanctuary for such a wonderful animal. However, we all felt that the 90 minute ride to the elephant camp and back was not only inadequate but unsafe. To travel on speeding highways in the back of a converted pickup truck was extremely dangerous.
  • ROSE CELINE 27 Jan 2019
    We enjoyed our full day visit in thw santuary. We love to feed and bath the elephants. This trip is a dream come true for me, we really had a great time with ths elephants. i will come back this August with my husband to experience the 2D1N. I must say this is the highlight if my Thailand trip.💕
