The elephants you will meet have been raised in our village and are accustomed to kind human interaction unlike wild elephants who must be strictly controlled.

Had an amazing experience. Loved the interaction with the elephants. Learned about elephants, fed them, bathe them and even got to ride them. I would definitely recommend it. Loved every minute of it.

Sam was the best tour guide. Super nice and welcoming. The elephants were amazing and great to see them up close where we were able to feed them bananas and sugar canes that they particularly enjoyed. The elephants are free to roam around and even enjoy a swim in the passing river. Sam and the rest of the Karen Tribe looked after us greatly and provided very tasty food from a local market and delicious mangos. It was so great to see the elephants so well kept and surrounded by such great and dedicated people.

Highly recommend this experience and once again shout out to Sam our tour guide!!!

We had an amazing day with the Karen Tribe Native Elephants family! From learning how to make elephant medicine to experiencing firsthand how they care for these majestic animals, every moment was unforgettable. The delicious lunch they provided was a bonus, and the elephant bath at the end was a perfect way to conclude our day. It was a genuine and educational experience, and we left with a newfound appreciation for elephant care and Karen culture. Highly recommend this authentic and heartwarming experience!

Best full day Elephant experience. I love the setting. Small groups, one on one experience with the elephant. This is a must do. Skip the other tours. Get an authentic experience.

This was the most ethical, wholesome and fun experience! It was so wonderful to see how healthy the elephants were. We took a group of High School students to Thailand from Hong Kong and this was the perfect finale for our trip. The lunch banquet is amazing!

Honestly the most amazing part of our trip to Thailand! You will take care of your own elephant all day which is once in a lifetime experience!

The guides are relaxed and the elephants are clearly comfortable and a pleasure to be with!

I would be the first to recommend this trip with the great people to everyone!

This was by far one of the best experiences of my life.
It was so lovely and heartwarming to see how well the elephants were looked after by Sun and the team.
They educated us about the elephants. We spent so much quality time with the elephants, fed them, bathed them and made vitamin for them. They did a huge food spread which was delicious and beautiful. They have a small group which makes the experience so special.
You will get the full experience and so much more. If you are in Thailand make a trip to Chiang Mai and definitely experience this. We did and would definitely do this again.
