This is a MUST DO activity in Chiang Mai! We chose the whole day experience and it was the best choice ever. They truly care about the elephants. We learned a lot about elephant behavior and their needs. Our elephant was named Mum, we fed him, walked with him, gave him a mud spa and bath. Definitely, the best day in Chiang Mai! Also, the vegetarian lunch was delicious. Book this, Right now!

Incredible! Woody was our guide, as well as several of his colleagues. They made sure we had a great time! The bathing and feeding experience was so fun. It's so clear the elephants are treated well as they very clearly have a strong bond of trust with the people that work there. A lovely experience that was guilt free due to how well the elephants are treated.

I do not know if I will ever have an experience like this one. The event is very well organized and the elephants are very well cared for. Th3 guides and trainers are funny and friendly. This is something everyone should do at least once in their lives.

Perfect day! Pick-up and drop off from hostel, vegetarian buffet there, and day proceeded with activities as exactly scheduled. Magical experience and elephants couldn’t be treated more ethically. Me and our group of 5 friends 10/10 recommend.

Amazing experience! The elephants are also treated well.
