The best elephant experience in Chiang Mai. We would come back again without doubt it for a second. They take great care of the elephants and they respect them a lot. An awesome experience I recommend 100%. Don't look for other places, really. If you are reading this review you have found THE elephant sanctuary you are looking for.

Myself, my boyfriend and two new friends chose this lovely sanctuary to see their elephants. It was such an amazing and personal experience. Chanchai who was our guide for the day is an amazing, kind and funny guy, we took an instant liking to him. His English is top notch. He has so much knowledge about the area and of course, elephants. His family own a farm in the Himalayan range and they have been taking care of elephants for generations. First and foremost, the elephants are not exploited or abused in any way. They really are part of the family to those people. The day was organised around the elephants routine , you get to join them in their daily adventuress. They were not forced to do anything that they didn’t want to. It was amazing to see how the family communicated with the elephants and how much love they had for each other. I would highly recommend this sanctuary, as it actually is one, as opposed to other more popular sanctuaries who don’t seem to care half as much for the well being of elephants as these guys do. Absolutely wonderful people, elephants and experience!

This experience is authentic. A private family care for 4 elephants. They are truely treated just like any other member of their family. The respect and care they have for these elephants is second to none. One of the most magical experiences of our lives. They really are such beautiful gentle people and elephants. The respect they feel for their beasts is radiant. I could not recommend this life changing experience more. If you come to Thailand and do one thing make this your first priority.

Had a fantastic day! Picked up from our hotel by Chan Chai. Very friendly caretaker who spoke good English. Excellent knowledge and conversation about the history of his people and elephants. We fed the elephants and introduced ourselves, walked with them up the hill, had a delicious lunch, had a mud bath and swam in the creek with the elephants. Such great memories. This is the tour to choose. Very ethical treatment of these beautiful animals. Highly recommended!!

After extensive research to find the most ethical, authentic elephant experience I chose this one for our family. From start to finish it was amazing - we had real close up time with the 4 elephants and got to know them and their characters. We walked them, fed them and bathed them. What a privilege to spend a day with these majestic, beautiful creatures! I would thoroughly recommend this experience.
