A full-day Elephant Jungle Sanctuary package offers visitors the opportunity to get to know each of the remarkable elephants and gain a special understanding of their daily lives and behaviors. Experience life with the elephants in their natural home – A freely roamed environment which is both safe and sustainable. Located beside a Karen village in a densely forested mountainous region, the Sanctuary is surrounded by spectacular jungle scenery.

You will be picked up from your place of accommodation in the morning, and travel around 1.5 hours from Chiang Mai to the Sanctuary. Breathe clear mountain air as you drive through the beautiful agricultural countryside of Northern Thailand, and get a glimpse of local life outside of the city. When you arrive at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, an English-speaking guide will walk with you to the Sanctuary, and teach you a little about elephants and the local way of life. Get changed into traditional Karen clothing, listen as your guide tells you more about the Sanctuary, grab some bananas and sugar cane for feeding, and you will be ready to meet the elephants!

08:00-08:30 Hrs. from your hotel * Collection times may vary slightly depending on pick up location. We offer a free transfer service to all places of accommodation within a 5km radius of Chiang Mai’s Old City. Transport from locations outside this area will incur a surcharge.

APPROX. 17:30 Hrs.
