This elephant park is rated as the top attraction when visiting Chiang Mia. The park has rescued all of its elephants, dogs, water buffalo, and cats and takes good care of the previously mistreated animals.

I am not familiar with an elephant sanctuary with bamboo rafting. We left Chiang Mai at 9 and drove out to the sanctuary for the day then drove back at about 3.

Yes, they will pick up from the hotel at 8am and return about 2.30pm lunch included. That is the schedule for the half day itinerary.
