ONE FULL DAY TOUR 

A full-day Elephant Jungle Sanctuary package offers visitors the opportunity to get to know each of the remarkable elephants and gain a special understanding of their daily lives and behaviors. Experience life with the elephants in their natural home – A freely roamed environment which is both safe and sustainable. Located beside a Karen village in a densely forested mountainous region, the Sanctuary is surrounded by spectacular jungle scenery.

You will be picked up from your place of accommodation in the morning, and travel
around 1.5 hours from Chiang Mai to the Sanctuary. Breathe clear mountain air as you
drive through the beautiful agricultural countryside of Northern Thailand, and get a
glimpse of local life outside of the city. When you arrive at the Elephant Jungle
Sanctuary, an English-speaking guide will walk with you to the Sanctuary, and teach you
a little about elephants and the local way of life. Get changed into traditional Karen
clothing, listen as your guide tells you more about the Sanctuary, grab some bananas
and sugar cane for feeding, and you will be ready to meet the elephants!

Then you will meet and interact with each of our friendly elephants personally. Learn about elephant’s behavior, and discover the unique and interesting history of each

elephant as you touch, play, feed, and photograph them. Once you have met and spent time with each of the elephants, you can retire to a relaxing platform overlooking a
picturesque river and jungle. There, you will enjoy a delicious lunch of traditional Thai food and fresh fruit, before being re-united with your elephant friends.

At this point during the day, you will walk alongside the elephants to a nearby river and join them for a bath in the refreshing water. Here, you will have the opportunity to bathe and brush the elephants while they enjoy wading through the water. Next, it will be time for a therapeutic mud spa. Feel free to get muddy as you cover the elephants in a protective layer of mud. Have fun playing with them and watch as they joyfully frolic in the mud spa.

When it’s time to say goodbye to the elephants, you can take some final photos with them to preserve this precious memory, then head upstream and wash off your remaining mud, or relax with a swim in the fresh, clean water. Finally, you will change clothes and take a scenic walk back through the Karen village. You will then part ways with your local guide, and return to Chiang Mai, experiencing the drive through picturesque rural scenery in the pleasant glow of the afternoon sun.
