Elephant Sanctuary is an ethical elephant sanctuary near Chiang Mai (only a 1.5 hour drive away). You can visit the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary at two different times during the day. The morning visit takes place from 6:30 am to 12:30 pm and the afternoon visit takes place from 13:30 to 18:30 pm. The package deal includes two traditional Thai buffet meals, pick up and drop off to your accommodation in Chiang Mai (terms and conditions apply), drinking water and even food for feeding the elephants!
When you arrive at the Chiang Mai Elephant Sanctuary, the guides will give you a basic overview of the tour, some information about the elephants and then traditional Karen clothes to wear during the tour. Since the tour can get messy and wet (in a very fun way!) we suggest that you bring some things with you. Bring a hat, sunscreen, a bathing suit, a towel and a change of clothes to our Chiang Mai elephant conservation center.
