It was fantastic day with a little big babies Meena , Ellie and their family’s at Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Chiang Mai ! The staff are very nice and really make the visitors happy and enjoy the activities. It was an unforgettable experience! Thank you so much ! 🤩🙏🏻🐘🐘 Highly recommended

Glad that i chose this half a day activity. Pick up at hotel 630-7am and reached my hotel back around 1pm. We got to interact with the rescued elephants thru feeding them lotsa bananas, swimming with them and covering them with mud.. managed to see a 4 month old baby elephant playing with water and frolicking in the mud within its pen area. change of clothes and towel required, shower facilities provided on site. Buffet Lunch was provided as well! Photo taking is included in the price as well.

The close up experience with the elephants was great and in fact the most enjoyable thing to do. However, there's a lot of time spent listening to the guide talking and the ride to the camp was not that great as we were taken in a truck (though they called it taxi in Chiang Mai) and the road was bumpy.
