TESTIMONIALS

Elephant Sanctuary Chiang Mai

Join us on our mission to rescue abused elephants. Our Elephant Sanctuary in Chiang Mai has been caring for these majestic creatures for over twenty-five years. It is our honor to share this most beautiful experience with our friends from around the world. Elephant Freedom Project offers visitors a unique experience while visiting our elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. Our sanctuary is just one hour from Chiang Mai City. We offer four tours daily and allow for same-day booking. Check out our Full Day Elephant Experience, Our Half Day Morning tour, or our Half Day Afternoon Tour

You can also check our Elephant Feeding Experience.  Our tours are great fun for singles, couples, and families alike. Elephant Freedom Project guarantees an unforgettable, intimate adventure with our elephants in their natural surroundings. Observe elephants foraging in the forest, interacting with each other, and playing in the mud and river– the elephants have been freed from elephant riding, performing tricks, and other unnatural behavior. We support independent ethical elephant projects that are now providing a better life for these gentle giants.

Our hope is to lead by example and contribute to a positive change in the perception of elephants, to witness a future where elephants are not poached, ridden, overworked, or abused, and are instead treated with care, love, and respect as all living things should be!

Elephant River Hike

Hiking along the river is very peaceful. The scenery is beautiful, the river’s water flows endlessly. Hiking with the elephants in such a majestic area just adds to the fun.

As we do not control the elephants in any way, it’s great fun to see them entertain themselves along the way. They say elephants never forget, they know exactly where we are headed. To the river to swim and play.
