    I absolutely recommend booking this, especially through Klook! It was super easy, the only issue I had was that the organiser didn't confirm a pick-up time with me before the trip as it says on Klook's page. I contacted Klook the day before to ask if I should just follow the time outlined on their page (8-8:30am) but they did not get back to me until the day AFTER the trip already happened. I called the organiser directly myself to confirm the pick-up time. Apart from this, everything was smooth. We made a brief stop for other people in our group to pay using card about 10 minutes from the location. We visited Camp 2 and it is an ethical, no-riding camp/sanctuary! All the staff seemed to love elephants and were passionate about their conservation and giving them a good quality of life. They also explained the history of elephants in Thailand, why they can't just release them into the wild anymore and why sanctuaries like theirs are needed. They have over 100 rescued elephants in their care now across Thailand. All in all, a lovely day spent with these gentle giants, watching them interact with each other and learning more about them! There were also three babies at our camp, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, who were super cute and absolute troublemakers!

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.

    It was a good tour. We were taken to an elephant sanctuary that was situated 2 hours from downtown. The guide was excellent. He explained everything about the sanctuary as well as the rescued elephants. Highly recommended
  • Trisha Anne Lopez 14 Apr 2019
    Wow what an amazing experience! Everything was perfect from start to finish. The staff were so welcoming and funny. You can tell the elephants are cared for properly. We went during the songkran festival so driving back was fun as we were soaked from the water the locals were throwing at us! Definitely recommend!!
  • Denise 29 Mar 2019
    Best activity so far!! If visiting in Thailand the elephant sanctuary is a must. Such a beautiful experience to be able to care for these creatures while learning all about them and enjoying nature surrounding the area. Kids absolutely loved it!!
  • Xu 28 Mar 2019
    The whole experience was AMAZING! 1. It was like 1.5 hours away from the city. We were 7 in the back of a tuktuk. Was fun to meet and chat with others. 2. The elephant sanctuary activities were well organised. Do remember to bring your swim suits since you need yo play with the elephants in the mud! It was so much fun. 3. Lunch was vegetables and fried chicken. Tasty! 4. The host in Karen village was simply great! He cooked dinner and breakfast for us which was really delicious (we finished all of them haha)
  • Kong Huey 24 Mar 2019
    The ride was long. But it was a fun trip. We went for half a day. Learnt so much about elephants. We got to feed them. Bathe them and have our late lunch before we head back to the city. Overall it was a good experience.
  • vijay 27 Feb 2019
    Awesome experience overall,the people running the show at camp 5 are a delight, fun and full of life. You can clearly see that they care for the animals and make sure they are taken care of at all times.if in Chiang Mai do not miss this experience !!!
  • Charmaine 25 Feb 2019
    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 😊
  • ROSE CELINE 27 Jan 2019

  • HakKan 4 Jan 2019
    We have great fun with the elephants! & happy to see them playing in the nature without anyone riding on them! There was also a photographer who helped take photos to us, & we can download all photos from Dropbox free of charge!
