Overview

Baanchang Elephant's Paradise is dedicated to providing elephants with the highest quality-of-life possible. We are a non-profit organization, meaning we are funded exclusively by visitors and donations and every cent we receive goes towards making our elephants lives as pleasant as possible and, of course, rescue new elephants. The Park invites you to hands-on experience on participating, sharing responsibilities and taking care of an elephant. "The Magical Elephant Mahout Training" is a special program created for everyone to learn and interact with elephnats as what an Mahout would do daily. We will give you a wonderful introduction to the Asian elephants. You will learn about the behaviors and lifestyle of these elephants. also you can learn how to control and bath the elephants as if you are a Mahout. All the while, you will be able to ride Bareback through the hill around our Park.

Amazing place that does a sacred mission. No words can describe the satisfaction you feel when you help this cute elephants to live a decent life. The family is nice as well. Very recommended to visit this place and contribute to save these giants.

Most of the elephant parks in Thailand do not treat the animals very well. This is a clear exception. They rescue injured and distressed elephants and take care of them. They provide interaction with the elephants as a way to raise money and awareness. They...More

It was a great experience meeting the elephants. You get working clothes and you can feed, bathe, ride and hug the big animals. Best experience I had in north Thailand
