Pamper a Pachyderm (Full Day)

An elephant camp neighboring our park has decided to try out our concept of care. So now four lucky female elephants have dumped their trekking seats and their mahouts hooks have been cast aside. Only small groups enjoy the honour of observing their freedom and happiness; they walk, they scratch, they swim, they eat, they dust batheall  at their own pace...

May this be the start of a new trend that catches on in the Mae Taeng valley and elsewhere.

Sunshine for Elephants (Full Day)

Meet elephants that have been recently rescued from their daily toil of entertaining visitors. You will feed the elephants in the early morning light and then walk with these newly rescued elephants through the dense mountain forests witnessing their natural behaviours and sense of freedom, after their recent release from the tourism trade.

During the day, you may get the opportunity to help us plant trees to increase the reforestation of the area. You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the forest and then move on to the mud pit to observe the elephants enjoying themselves.

Care for Elephants (Full Day)

Some elephants find it very hard to mix with other elephants and in order to help them, we want to love them with intense freedom and affection.

When elephants settle into our care, they build trust and love and this is achieved by humans showing them love, respect and care in a different way to their past lives in riding camps by mahouts, who have known no better than to treat them harshly and with force.

Journey to Freedom (7 Days)

This community-based project is a responsible choice providing unique, memorable and authentic experiences. Supporting local cultural efforts takes travelers well beyond the traditional routes and provides a life-changing experience for participating volunteers.


  • Elephants living free in their home lands
  • Education of Karen and local community to treasure and value their environment
  • Improve local community living standards; build clean village toilets, water tanks, running water pipe systems, bridges for school children, temple and nursery school construction etc.

A home stay has been set up in a village south of Chiang Mai for volunteers to learn about Karen culture and watch the elephants roam freely in this remote mountainous region. Fees paid by volunteers are used to compensate the tribes-folk for the income they would have received from leasing their elephants to tourist camps.
