The work that this organisation do is absolutely fantastic, and we had such a lovely day, feeding and bathing the elephants. We pre-booked this trip online, and I would recommend you do this to avoid disappointment. Transfers are included, and on the journey there (about 1hr 20 from Chiang Mai old town), they play you a video about the work... More

My wife and I spent a full day at Elephant Nature Park and had an incredible experience. Our guide Korn was terrific; knowledgeable and funny with the patience to answer our many questions. Our group spent time with three elephants, two females and a young male referred to as Naughty Boy. What a personality Naughty Boy possessed, and the other... More

Come here to this amazing place and interact with these beautiful and majestic animals in a loving and humane way. You get to feed, bathe and bond with the elephants, learn about their lives before they were rescued, and see how they are loved and looked after now. There is no elephant riding here. You walk around the park with... More

I have been following the work of this amazing organization for many years and was SO excited to finally be able to visit. NO ONE when they visit should attend shows or ride elephants; people need to know that these animals are abused DAILY. This experience through Elephant Nature Park is WAY more intimate AND totally friendly to the elephants.... More

Wow. Absolutely amazing. I pre-booked the trip online, and has difficulty receiving the confirmation response so I asked my hotel to call and confirm. The hotel assisted in calling, and I received my confirmation within an hour. We went on the full day tour. We had an 8am pick up at our hotel. Then a 2hr ride in the back... More

The best thing that i did when i was in Chiang Mai. I visited Mae Tang's Elephant Farm and it was wonderful. I went to see the elephants show, ride with an elephant, pull by the cows and rafting in a small river.

This was a great adventure. My sons and I wanted to see the elephants. We didn't know we were going to be so close. We got to feed them and at first I was a little scared. They run right up to you but they are so gentle. I was surprised how they use their trunks. After this we got... More

I knew not to ride elephants, but hadn't really thought very deeply into elephant captivity until the hour or so van ride to the park where they show a video about elephants in forced labor in shows, amusement parks, etc. This video will literally make you cry your eyes out and want to go around ninja-freeing all captive, slave elephants...

Would highly recommend the day trip to the elephant nature park. This is how elephants in captivity should be treated, the day included feeding/washing and meeting majority of the elephants at the park. Our guide 'K' was very good and funny, he was very knowledgable about the elephants and had interesting stories to tell about each elephant. If you want... More

I almost did a half day trip with these guys but ended up doing the full day. So so worth it. Especially if you want to spend quality time with the elephants. The guides were friendly and hilarious. Learned a lot about the elephants and once we arrived at the forest camp we got to feed them, bath them in... More
