So so so worth the money. Great day with the elephants. Small group so lots of photos and time with the elephants. The owners and tour guides were very friendly and helpful. They truly take care of these beautiful creatures. Only downside I would say is the trip to the long neck village in the afternoon was rather lame. If I had known the “half day” option is the exact same as the full day (minus the journey to long neck village) I would have done that instead and saved 300 baht! Otherwise perfect perfect day.

If you're going to Chiang Mai, do this. I spent ages deciding on an ethical elephant sanctuary, and could not be more happy that I settled on this one. I did the full day experience and booking was super easy - I just sent them a Facebook message and the guide picked me up from my hotel in the morning.

The full day includes white water rafting (hilarious and good fun), a trek through the jungle (wear sensible shoes!) to a pretty waterfall for swimming, and then time with the elephants to feed and bathe them.

Our guide was fantastic and stayed with us all day, and even took hundreds of photos for us and uploaded them to Facebook so that we could download them for ourselves - really handy for me as a solo traveller.

Cannot recommend this tour enough - do it!

We did the full day trip to the sanctuary which included elephant care, a water fall trek and rafting. The elephants are very well cared for and it was an incredible experience. The guides were very knowledgeable and obviously the family have a strong bond with the elephants.The waterfall trek was not difficult and the rafting on the way down was great fun. I would recommend this to anyone.

I booked a full day for the elephant camp and it was great. The guide was very good, explained everything, the local staff was very friendly, the lunch delicious. We learned a lot about elephants, but the most beautiful thing was that we had to do all by ourself-preparing the food, feeding the elephants, washing them in the river. It was more than a class room in the nature. After the elephant program, we visited the village of a hilltribe, the so-called long necks. It was a very interesting day, filled with learning by doing.
