This trip offers once in a lifetime experiences such as, swimming with elephants, feeding the elephants by hand or meeting baby elephants born here in Chiang Mai. (We don’t work with elephants captured in the wild and babies get to stay with their moms) You will meet beautiful Asian elephants and learn how to approach and communicate with them, make elephant medicine, bathe them and walk with them through the jungle sanctuary to forage for fresh healthy food. Learn about their history in Thailand and how your purchase of an elephant experience with our organization helps to create a safe and permanent home for them. Chai Lai Orchid’s Elephant Sanctuary is one of the best elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai. Relax at the Chai Lai Orchid cafe and enjoy delicious fresh food with epic views of the valley.

We offer only ethical elephant experiences. The elephants we love and support are trained each day through positive reinforcement, helping them learn to respond to voice commands. Managing them responsibly helps us ensure these elephants can safely receive veterinary care because they trust the humans who love and care for them.
