About

Thailand is known for its symbolic animal, the elephant. And while there are many agencies and tours that offer elephant rides and other experiences with these animals, the Chiang Mai Elephant Jungle Sanctuary has made it its mission to not only provide tourists with an excellent experience, but also to protect and treat their elephants ethically. You can see this by the animals’ happy disposition and healthy look.

As one of the best elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai, they have an amazing track record of sustainable and ethical elephant treatment. Their experiences are usually held in small groups so as not to overwhelm the animals. 

Some activities include elephant feeding, petting, bathing, and even playing with the friendly creatures.
