Overview
We are part of an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project. We have talked with the elephant carers (Mahout) and invited them to join our project. Our special project purpose to take the chain and saddle off of the elephants, like some projects of Elephants nature park. They are our inspiration. We aim to provide a better life for the elephants. In all of our program activities visitors can observe the elephants in nature as well as gain an insight into their history and behavior. We are happy to provide them a safe, loving and secure environment for them to roam free in a natural environment.

Enjoyed all this cozy camp had to offer. From feeding to bathing these cute giants. Myself and companions witnessed three of them at the camp - at the time -and they were keen, happy and well-treated. Highlight was getting to play with the little one - very eager to play.

This was unfortunately not an ethical sanctuary at all. I was mislead by the name. While I was there, I saw the caretaker tug and play around with the elephant’s tail to get them to move to one place, or hit them with grass. No one was monitoring this, as if I was acceptable or

Hello Repulsive, sorry that you had this experience. From your experience it's totally difference from other visitors who had visiting us. Not sure if you write a review to the right place. And you wrote a review for Date of experience: September 2019 we not sure why you wait for almost a year to share your experience here. And we can not find your name on our visitor list as well. So we are not sure if you were really our visitor or you might wrote the review to the wrong location. The elephants have joined our project " the saddle off" used to be elephants riding and elephant show. We are happy that the owners have see the better life for their elephants and join our project. Elephants can eat up to 16 hours a day. This is the main activity that our visitors use to help feed and care for the elephants. Bathing in the river or mud is also a natural and often repeated activities for them, helping them to cool down and protect their skin from the sun and insects. We don't use a hook to control elephants, no elephant show here. If you know their behavior you should understand how the elephants talk and play and communicate to each other, very loud. The elephants have areas around to move freely. We offer them home, food and treat them well. We love our elephants and take a good care of them. We put a lot of passion in our project and the elephants found a new home with us. It took a lot of time and effort to provide a better life for these elephants. And we appreciate your support and your understanding.

There is plethora of elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai, but this one was amazing. My friend and I really enjoyed it. We learned a lot of things with the guide with an impressive kindness. The bath with elephant was an unforggettable souvenir and what we can say about the baby

Not sure I believe the hype
It seems to me that this attraction isn’t so much about ethical treatment of elephants but more “hay we got to eat”
