About The Elephant Nature Park Short Park Visit

The Elephant Nature Park is a special sanctuary in Northern Thailand that has been rescuing elephants from abuse and neglect for more than 25 years. Within the park, rescued elephants are allowed to freely roam and live happy, healthy lives in a safe and natural habitat.

A typical day of the short park visit begins with a late morning pickup at your guesthouse or hotel in Chiang Mai. Enjoy a scenic ride through the Thai hillside and listen to stories told by your English-speaking guide about how the elephants were rescued and what their lives are now like at the Elephant Nature Park.

Once you arrive, enjoy quality time with the herd of gentle giants. Meet the elephants from a safe viewing platform and then win them over one by one by feeding them their favorite tropical fruit. This is a great time to take photos! Afterward, enjoy your own lunch of a vegetarian buffet and relax a bit before visiting the elephants again.

In the afternoon, join the elephants for a slow picturesque walk through the fields and forests of the sanctuary down to a small river. There the elephants will play together and splash in the water to cool off while you watch from the river banks. This is a great opportunity to take photos and take in this once in a lifetime moment.

At the end of the trip, say goodbye to the elephants, change into clean clothing, and then enjoy a comfortable ride back to your hotel in Chiang Mai. There are no additional stops or ‘add-ons’ during this tour.
