This place was okay. We came with a tour to volunteer with the elephants. This was one of many elephant tours I did. It was just an okay one. If this had been the only one I did, I would have been disappointed.
Of course this is made for tourists, but they finance a living for the elephants and the mahut. And believe me, the elephants are having fun! To spend a day with these gorgeous animals was just magnificent!
For years I’ve wanted to get up close with my favourite animals and researched a lot about which place to do this where they treat the animals with respect and care. As soon as we arrived at this sanctuary that is what we saw. There...More
Great experience from Chiang Mai. A bit of a drive but it is pretty anyway. You get to feed, wash and mud throw the elephants. The employees really care for the elephants and treat them well. I saw many examples of the kindness towards them...More
We had an incredible day here with the elephants. The guys at the camp are fantastic. Lots of time with the elephants, feeding them, mud bath and then down to the river for a huge water fight. Lots of fun, great lunch. Would definitely recommend!
It was really neat to see the elephants and interact with them, and it did seem like they were well treated. I was expecting more information about the elephants, elephant behavior, etc. and there wasn't any other than their names and ages. The drive to...More
We did a lot of research before booking with elephant jungle sanctuary and are pleased to say that nothing we saw suggested the elephants were unhappy or mistreated in any way. Ya Ya (sp?) our guide was very knowledgable and we enjoyed her dry sense...More
We didn’t the full day and I was a bit hesitant after reading some of the reviews posted on here.
We took a chance anyway and I a SO HAPPY that we did. I am not someone to enjoy things like this that much but...More
I agree with the reviews that say they felt conflicted during this experience. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I didn’t feel like I learnt anything about elephants or that the elephants were enjoying the interaction. It just seemed like an endless stream of...More

Hey! So we did full day and wished we stayed overnight... HOWEVER, if you're staying overnight through them, beware that it certainly isn't the greatest place to stay. We saw a couple get dropped off at the overnight location and it was in the middle of no where, at what looked to be a run down local house, in a questionable area... If we go back, we will try to do the overnight BUT book a hostel in the area if possible...

Apologies, the cost per person I quoted earlier was for our cooking class! For our Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, the cost was US$ 53 or THB 1,700 per person. There may be cheaper tours, but we definitely enjoyed this one.
