An elephant camp neighboring our park has decided to try out our concept of care. Several 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; with no riding they can now walk, scratch, swim, eat, dust and bathe all at their own pace...
May this be the start of a new trend that catches on in the Mae Taeng valley and elsewhere.

Meet elephants that have been recently rescued from their daily toil of entertaining visitors. With no riding, 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.

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.
With no riding the 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.
