Elephant Helper - Overnight
Sleepover in the midst of a thriving elephant herd while enjoing the simple rustic nature of Northern Thailand
We pick up from your hotel for a scenic drive north to Elephant Nature Park where you will meet our magnificent elephant herd. You will soon get to know them and make new friends by offering them delicious nourishing foods fresh from the market.
An introductory orientation video and talk where you can learn all about our herd and the park is followed by a healthy lunch of fresh local produce then bathe and swim with our elephants in the river that borders our park. Discover how to communicate with them and learn with our trained staff. Observe our herd at play and watch them interact in each of their social groups. Full dinner at the park and accommodation at park huts.
After breakfast you can go on an elephant walk (weather permitting), following the elephants through the forests.
Upon returning to the Park with the elephants you get to feed and bathe the herd. You will soon begin to identify different elephants by their shape, markings and attitude.
Observe and enjoy the communications and interactions between these highly intelligent and loving
Dinner and lunches at the park are casual affairs, the focus being on high quality locally grown produce prepared in Western and Eastern styles. The range on offer will suit all diets from vegetarian to Halal.
Accommodation for overnight visitors are traditional bamboo fan cooled huts, rustic and in keeping with our natural surrounds. Mosquito nets are provided so you may sleep with your windows open; if you listen to the night you may hear the elephants whisper, rumble, snore and even the occasional trumpet. You may watch the elephants from your room or the dedicated observation platform.
Elephant Nature Park's Mae Taeng Valley location is naturally stunning. Combined with the company of a herd of rescued elephants you will have the chance to take numerous pictures and keep lifelong memories.
*Overnight stays are all about spending time with the herd and do not adhere to a strict schedule; the best way to make the most of your visit is to relax, watch and learn from the elephants.
