  • Feed and bathe the gentle giants in their natural habitat
  • Visit the Karen Village and interact with its people
  • Transfer services are included on this tour
The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is located in the northern part of Thailand, particularly in the city of Chiang Mai. It was established in 2014, when the Karen hill tribes and other locals of the province expressed concern for the welfare of Thai elephants. The sanctuary is now home to over 30 elephants that now embrace freedom after having been formerly mistreated. It also serves as a source of livelihood for Karen tribes, providing them with employment and financial support.

On this tour, you will be taken on a one-and-a-half-hour ride from your hotel to the south of Chiang Mai. Upon reaching the site, you will have the chance to play with the elephants and feed them in their natural habitat. You will also experience walking them to the river, where you will bathe them and even join in a therapeutic mud spa session.
