    This was the highlight of our trip in Thailand! On the way to the sanctuary, the roads were very windy so be sure to take some motion sickness medication.

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.

    Elephant is always one of my favorite animals. This tour not only giving you a chance to be close to this gentle giant but also some basic and interesting knowledge. Taking the bathe with the elephants is definitely the highlights of the day. Anyone that will visit Chiang Mai should join this tour!

    The whole experience was so great - from their staff down to the activities. It is just so good to see a group of people from different nationalities who came to camp with the emphasis on ethical treatment on Elephants. We started with the orientation of the guests where they provided general information about elephants, emphasized their goal in the sanctuary and explained the flow of the activity. I so love the fact that we could touch, cuddle, mud bath and feed these gentle giants (oh they love bananas so much). Their sizes were so huge but they were so adorable. The baby elephant was also very playful that time. We had all the time in the morning to interact with the elephants. The tour also included a free lunch buffet and free water. This experience is definitely one for the books. We came to feed them, to play and and to bath with them, NOT RIDE on them. Elephants are adorable, they deserved to be treated well and to be loved. 🐘♥ Much love from the Philippines 😊

    Absolutely a must have experience when you are in Chiang mai! we did a lot of research before selecting this tour - we didn't want see elephants performing tricks or ride on them, we just wanted to them as they are in the mountains. we saw exactly that! we joined in with their daily routines like feeding and bathing, but otherwise the elephants could do whatever they wanted to. Some say that the people looking after the elephants are trainers but then without them, we would be able to get near the elephants. All elephants were treated very well and seem to be very happy there. we had a fantastic time there and would recommend this tour!

    highly recommend! It's a amazing experience for me to be with elephants and the beautiful nature. Although it takes a long ride to the sanctuary but it's very worth. The staffs in sanctuary take very good care to elephants. The guide speaks very good english and teach us a lot about how to take care elephant. Going there is just like a retreat from the city life to experience a sense of peace & harmony.

    The best experience in Chiang Mai. The elephants are well taken care of and we had fun during our visit. Pick up and drop off time was right on schedule. Knowledgeable tour staff. I suggest more food choices for lunch.
