  • Honestly a breathtaking experience to feed, clean and give the medicine to the elephants. The trainers are amazing too! The elephants are well looking after! Do not miss out, you won’t regret it!  more »
  • Afternoon to Kanta Elephant Sanctuary. Half hour in advance booked, but was not a problem. Opgeh1aald on time and after an hour's drive arrived at a beautiful location. Been given explanations of what they are doing and after that elephants eat and washed. Very cool to be so close to such great beasts. It also provides perfect facilities, water and fruit, showers, towels and lockers. Guide Tom also very friendly and good for the beasts. Totally top!

  • One of the most amazing experiences I have had. This is a "must do" in Chiang Mai. Ethical elephant sanctuary. No hooks, chains, or riding. No cages. 100% rescue elephants bought from zoos, private owners, logging companies, etc. These elephants are well taken care of, and happy! Reasonably priced. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, wonderful atmosphere, and loving elephants. My only regret was having to leave. Wish I could have spent days or weeks with these beautiful creatures.
  • AMAZING. Get to spend a lot of quality time with the elephants. You can tell the guide was very passionate about his job and loves what he does. Lunch was good and plenty of drinking water. They even have a locker for you to store your stuff so you dont have yo worry about it. The pictures that were taken were very good as well.
