Activities by : Kanta Elephant Sanctuary

Activity Information :

On the morning of your visit, you will be picked up from your place of accommodation and will drive for approximately 50 Mins through scenic agricultural areas before arriving at the Sanctuary. Learn a little about the elephants, before changing into their sanctuary uniform and get hands on with some beautiful elephants.

After being allocated bananas and sugar cane to feed to the elephants, you will walk with your guide through the Sanctuary, where you will find free-roaming elephants and hear their individual stories. You can touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors. After you have met all the elephants, get wet and muddy with the elephants as you apply a mud treatment to their skin which helps protect them for the sun and clean their bodies. Next, you will walk with the elephants to a nearby river and join them in the water for a refreshing bath. Take a swim and help bathe and brush the elephants while they wade through and play in the water.

Once the elephants are clean, you can take some photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways with your new friends and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy some fresh fruit before enjoying once again the impressive rural scenery as you drive back to Chiang Mai.

We offer a retirement home for ALL elephants who have previously worked hard for tourism entertainment AND in the logging industry.

Transform your world as you step into the tranquility of sanctuary life amidst the beautiful place in our Sanctuary.
