Chiang Mai: Ethical Elephant Sanctuary Tour

1. Chiang Mai: Ethical Elephant Sanctuary Tour

Meet elephants on this guided day trip from Chiang Mia to the Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary, located in the middle of a lush national park. Here the elephants are able to roam freely in a large green space. Keep your clothes clean by wearing local clothes and boots. Feed and interact with rescued elephants before sitting down to freshly cooked lunch.  Depart Chiang Mai aboard an air conditioned van and journey into the mountains of northern Thailand to visit the ethical Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary (approximately 1-hour drive from the city center). Upon arrival, learn about the elephant conservation program and benefit from an introductory talk, and the chance to interact with the rescued animals. Get the chance to give them a hug and discover how to prepare a healthy meal to feed them. Go for a walk around the sanctuary with the elephants and stop to give them a mud bath to keep their body temperature down and protect them from parasites. Feed them before enjoying a homemade lunch at a restaurant inside the sanctuary.

This is a unique experience that differs from any other tour or day trip because it gives you the chance to have direct contact with wildlife. I was apprehensive at first, not knowing how safe the activity is but as I got there, I quickly realized how fun and educational caring for elephants really is.

If you are looking for an ethical sanctuary where the elephants are truly happy, this is it! We had the best experience with our guide Poo. He was very knowledgeable and took great photos! Overall a great adventure that I highly recommend!

Something very different from other type of excursions. We had a close interaction with elephants, possibility to care of them and, of course, got a lot of information about them.

Amazing sanctuary with fun interactive tour and guide. Alex is amazing!

Taking care of the elephants was really fun, don't miss it!
