Elephant Park Chiang Mai
Elephant Park Chiang Mai is a sustainable and ethically run park located at the back of a Thai village, in the Mae Wang district, approximately 1h15min from Chiang Mai. It was created 2 and ½ years ago.
The 7 elephants here have been either rescued from riding camps or logging industry. They are not working anymore.
We are lucky to have three babies and you can witness the relationship between one of them and his mother.
Our elephants are treated ethically and humanly and are given a safe and natural environment. There is a flat space with sheds where they can relax and sleep, the nature around where they can walk, eat and scratch themselves, the river down the valley where they can refresh, bath, and play all together.
We try to grow most of the food onsite such as Napier grass, corn, sugar cane and bananas.
The volunteers, who stays few days with us, can learn more about these gentle giants and help us in their care and healing by helping with food and medicine preparation, feeding, bathing and playing with the elephants and helping the sanctuary by planting, cleaning, cutting...
You will always be accompanied by a guide and the mahouts (elephant caregiver) who will assist and guide you through your experience.
For those who are staying overnight, your accommodation will be onsite in a shared furnished Thai house with WIFI, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room, 2 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a big terrace on the roof top from where you can watch the elephants and the plantation. If you prefer a private bedroom, you can book a guesthouse that is a few minutes walk from The Park at an extra cost.
