Create an itinerary including Elephant Rescue Park
The Elephant Rescue Park is a newly established sanctuary in the Chiang Mai province of Thailand, created to be a forever home for homeless and abused elephants. In Thailand, we have a long and deeply traditional relationship with these magnificent animals, however, much of this relationship has been based on the exploitation of elephants by humans in the form of circus shows, the tourism industry, the logging industry and elephant back riding, among others.

Our primary objective is to provide a safe, loving and secure environment for the elephants that come to us, which we are able to do with your help, through visiting our beautiful sanctuary and supporting us through adoptions, donations and various fundraising projects.

  • Amazing! We booked the private morning tour. We were picked up, then we met the owner who told us how the park was created, we then changed and went to feed the elephants. They were all so amazing, they seemed happy and very at easy. We had a home cooked lunch which was so good and very filling! We also booked to do the Sticky Waterfall too! One thing to note is that they only really do cash so make sure to have it with you! I can’t recommend enough to experience this, it was amazing.
  • Amazing experience! If you are contemplating an elephant park to visit, this is the one. Lovely people, beautiful setting, and a great education so you feel closer to the elephants. All 3 of my children fell in love with the elephants and didn't want to say goodbye. All of the people at the Elephant Rescue Park are clearly devoted to the happiness and livelihood of the elephants. Our guide, Am 2, was so enthusiastic and clearly loved sharing his knowledge and appreciation of the elephants. He made the experience all the better. And the owner of the park is so very passionate about rescuing elephants. There is a lot of love at this place! (Bonus: the uniforms everyone wears make the pictures look so much better!)
