Ride an elephant in a natural park, discover how intelligent these animals are and cruise down the Mae Taeng River in a bamboo raft. An unforgettable day in Maetaman awaits!
Maetaman Elephant Safari Day Trip
After picking you up from your hotel we'll take the hour-long journey from Chiang Mai to the Maetaman Natural Park. Here we'll see how the elephants use their trunks to bathe themselves in water and mud, and we'll also see them star in an incredible show where they show off their intelligence: painting, dancing, playing football, carrying tree trunks, performing acrobatics and more.
Afterwards, we'll have the chance to ride an elephant and admire the beauty of Maetaman from a different angle. You'll ride in an ox cart and feel like the locals in the rural areas of Chiang Mai.
We'll take a small break to recharge our batteries and have some lunch before taking a bamboo raft down the Mae Taeng River. As we sail down the river you can relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings, including waterfalls, exotic flowers and various Thai tribes sat on the river banks.
After this incredible day discovering the scenery and wildlife in Maetaman, we'll head back to Chiang Mai and drop you back at your hotel between 3:30 and 4 pm.
