This is a non commercial center that takes care of elderly elephants. You get changed into work clothes( clean and folded) in a dressing area and then get ready to work. We made food and medication “balls” and the fed them to the elephants. Bananas were dessert. As we were working an excellent staff member was explaining all you wanted to know and was anxious to answer all questions. The highlight was walking the elephants down to the river and getting in with them to give them a real scrubbing. It was an amazing experience. Showers are provided before getting back into your own clothes From where you enter it is a long uphill walk to the Center. It is mostly a wooden walkway with a few stairs with high stepping needed. If you have any mobility issues it is not the place for you. At the top you can get drinks, ice cream and a few snacks .there are tables in the shade. It was a highlight of a 2 week trip to Thailand

We had a fantastic morning visiting this park. The staff were great and we walked with, fed and washed the elephants! Thoroughly recommend this, one of the best things was that it was not touristy at all just in the nature.

My last visit to Thailand had this as my number one priority. Being a big animal lover and visiting a place where you don’t ride elephants and your entry fee goes toward making sure these Gentle Giants live out their lives in peace and comfort. Makes it well worth the price.

We have just come back from an amazing day out at the Elephant care centre in Chiang Mai. Reading reviews of various places we came across this one and loved the idea of seeing the elephants in their natural habitat. The day did not disappoint! Please be aware there are lots of reviews of similar places that highlight animals in chains and not looked after. I’d like to reassure you that in this particular place this is not the case. The animals are well looked after, no chains and the organisers especially Eddy show lots of care, compassion and enthusiasm for the well-being of the two elephants on site. We started the day with a pick up from the hotel, we then called in the markets to get bananas to feed the elephants and then headed off to an area of the jungle. We fed the elephants bananas then had lunch that was prepared for us by the guys on site (delicious!) and in the afternoon we made Vitamin balls to feed them and bathed them in the river. A great experience and a fabulous day out was had by all. Please ignore any bad reviews and check out for yourself. Enjoy!
