Elephant Carer Home (Chiang Mai, Thailand)
Elephant Carer Home is located in a small village at Mae Tang, which is around one-hour driving distance from Chiang Mai city. It is surrounded by peaceful jungle which makes it a perfect habitat for the elephants. At Elephant Carer Home, you will experience the life of a mahout (the elephant trainer) where you will be learning voice command and develop a relationship with the elephants. You will enjoy an amazing experience of the closest interaction you can ever have with the elephants.
At Elephant Carer Home, you can feed, play, ride and bath an elephant. You will be given special clothes and learn how to mount the elephant bared-back with no seat attached. The elephants here are controlled by voice command by their trainer. You and your elephant will be trekking down the jungle paths and crossing rivers riding on their back. You can choose no riding if you don’t feel comfortable with it. There will be a photographer taking photos during your interaction with the elephants at no additional charge.
