Elephant Conservation in Chiang Mai

Elephant Conservation in Chiang Mai

Seeing an elephant in Thailand has long been a favorite of adventurous travelers, and visiting a Chiang Mai elephant conservation camp gets you close to the magnificent animals while ensuring their preservation and well-being. Here are some of the best ways to experience elephant conservation in Chiang Mai.

Baanchang Elephant Park

The privately owned and operated Baanchang Elephant Park cares for its elephants in a natural habitat with elephant welfare as a top priority. Visitors to the park get an introduction to the behaviors and lifestyles of Asian elephants, while learning how to use signals to communicate with them much like a traditional mahout, or elephant trainer.

Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary

Situated next to a river and rice paddies in rural Northern Thailand near Chiang Mai City, Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary rescues elephants from circuses and inhumane riding camps, giving them a place to roam freely. Visitors to the sanctuary can interact with the majestic mammals by learning to feed them, walk them for exercise, or make them vitamin balls, all under expert supervision.

Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary

The not-for-profit Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary works with local communities to rescue elephants, allowing them to roam in a semi-wild environment. This facility offers a unique opportunity book a volunteer experience at the sanctuary, where daily activities might include researching behaviors of elephants in their natural environment, taking part in community outreach programs, and learning about traditional hill tribe culture through a homestay program. 

Elephant Nature Park

Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center, provides a natural habitat for rescued elephants, buffaloes, dogs, and cats to heal and live out their lives in peace and comfort. The park offers a variety of visitor and volunteer programs to learn about the conservation work while interacting with the elephant herd.

Join our volunteer program to truly make a difference to both our elephants and community. Spend your days hiking to find the elephants in the forest, ensure they are happy and healthy in their natural environment and carry out research on their natural behaviours. Take part in our many community and teaching projects both at the school and in the village and immerse yourself in hill-tribe culture by staying and cooking in a traditional hill-tribe homestay and learning the basic skills that have been passed down through their generations such as basket weaving and bamboo cup making. We are a Non-Profit Foundation who are dedicated to giving our elephants the best life possible with the help of our visitors and volunteers. Our aim is to bring elephants home to the forest by working with the local communities to not only provide a haven for our elephants, but also provide an alternative livelihood for their mahouts and owners.
