Our experience does not correspond to the photographies you can see. It was in an other place, maybe due to the lower touristic season. However everything was perfect ! We were only two with four wonderful elephants (including two babies) which seem to be very...More

Amazing animals, nice people and had a blast. Got to ride one of them elephants and feed them. I would definitely visit this place again, it was kinda far from Chiang Mai but worth it! Bring water, repellent. Feed, ride or bath the elephants!

I can't even explain in words how amazing this experience was. We spent ages researching an ethical elephant park, and Elephant Carer Home was so much more than that. It's four elephants living free in their natural habitat, with limited daily visitors (it was just...More

This was my favourite experience of the entire trip. Learning about the elephants, making food for them then feeding them. Giving them a mud bath. Then finally washing them off in the river and swimming with them. From start to finish the entire experience was...More

We chose Elephant Carer Home based on the tripadvisor reviews, the fact that it wasn't too far from Chiang Mai centre (1 hour drive, in a minivan), and the fact that they also offered half-day tours (important for us as we had two children, aged...More

I'm 69 so I was a little nervous and also concerned that 1/2 a day would be too little time, but it was a great trip. the elephants are as gentle as they appear in the pictures and the trainers watch out for the visitors....More

We had an awesome experience here! We did the full-day no riding program, and it ended up just being the two of us at the sanctuary. We got to feed, pet, and bathe the elephants, and had a fantastic homemade lunch prepared by the owner's...More

Came here on advice from a friend. What a great experience. Both me and my sister were slightly scared because the elephants were so big but we were encouraged to go close to them. We fed, bathed and rode the elephants whilst we were there....More

Cannot speak highly enough about this experience. Excellent, must-do if you are in Chiang Mai. It's very obvious the elephants are happy and well-cared for. Very affordable packages for a memory you will keep forever.

Hi, yes. I contacted them via Facebook, they pick you up from your hotel around 08:30 and drop you off around 16:00. It's a full day experience meeting the animals, learning commands, trekking through the jungle on the... More
