This unique experience caring for, feeding and bathing Thai elephants at this sanctuary in Chiang Mai will leave you lost for words. Plus you'll also get the chance to experience life as a member of the Karen tribe. An unforgettable day!

Elephant Sanctuary Day Trip

After picking you up from your hotel at around 8 am, we'll set out towards the Chiang Mai Elephant Sanctuary. On the hour and a half journey, we'll delve into the Thai rainforest and see various local hill tribes. When we reach the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary we'll put on the traditional outfits of the Karen hill-tribes from northern Chiang Mai.

We'll prepare food for the elephants and you'll have the chance to hand feed them yourselves! You'll also be able to bathe them in mud, play with them and take photographs. This is an incredible day for all animal lovers! Plus, the guides will teach you all about the elephants, curious facts about them and how to care for them.

After enjoying a traditional Thai lunch, we'll go with the elephants to the river so they can have a bath. Don't forget your swimwear if you want to join them!

After a complete day learning all about these amazing animals, we'll drop you back at your hotel at around 5 pm.

Half-Day Tour

When making your reservation, you'll have the option to book a half-day excursion to the elephant sanctuary instead of the full day trip. You'll be able to choose to do the tour at 6:30 am or 11:30 am, and it follows a very similar itinerary to the above, just spending less time at the sanctuary - ideal if you're short on time!

Hotel Pick Up

This activity includes a pick up and drop off service from accommodation located within 2.5 miles (4 km) of Tha Pae Gate in Chiang Mai. If your hotel is located elsewhere, you'll need to select an alternative meeting point.
