What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a family-friendly experience
  • Learn to care for elderly elephants in the jungle of Mae Sa
  • Get up-close to native wildlife
  • Prepare different kinds of food for the elephants
Spend a day with elderly elephants enjoying their retirement in the jungle of Mae Sa. Help to care for the elephants, who need help looking after themselves after a lifetime of hard work.
What to Expect
On this full-day trip, you will be collected from your hotel in Chiang Mai, before you are transferred to the Thai Elephant Care Center in the jungle of Mae Sa. There, you will receive a briefing on the care center and Asian elephants by experts, before putting on special clothing.

After you have met the elephants, you will learn how to prepare appropriate food: ground grass is particularly appreciated, as you will notice when feeding the animals later. Your guide will show you the elephants' cemetery, teach you how to make a fire in a traditional stove and prepare sticky rice - the elephants' favourite afternoon snack.

Later, observe elephants bathing in mud - you can even join them if you want to! - before you enjoy some lunch. After lunch, you will learn how to make special cookies that the elephants love, before enjoying a small trek and following a trail of mahout to see where the elephants rest at night. Finally, you can experience a final feeding session before showering and heading back to your hotel.
