About Your Host

Hi. I’m Annie. Born and raised in Bangkok. I graduated from Assumption University BA Sci & Tech in Information Technology. I’ve been living in Chiang Mai for 11 years and this city is my home now. I like martial arts, sports, swimming, cooking, gardening and I find peace and happiness in nature and animals. In November 2018, I quit my full-time careers in hotel and tourism industry to travel the world. I’m grateful and fortunate enough to travel to countries I’ve always dreamed of visiting. Thank you so much for giving me an opportunity to be your host. I’m exciting to meet you and take you to see these amazing giants.

Itinerary

07.15 AM - 08.00 AMPick Up Time

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in and around the old city (the square area on the map)

08.00 AM - 09.00 AMHead To The Park

It takes about 1 hour to get there. We will stop at the gas station when we’re half way there for 10 minutes for coffee or restroom. 

09.15 AMArrive To The Park

Once arrive, you’ll have to change to mahout clothes (you can also wear your bathing suit under the clothes) before the program starts. Make sure you put bug spray and sun cream on.  

09.30 AM - 10.30 AMIntroduction

We’ll give you an introduction about Asian elephants, their nature, and their history. You’ll learn some words that the mahouts use in order to communicate with these elephants. The mahout will teach you how to cut sugar cane tree, how to feed elephants, and how to call their names.

10.30 AM - 11.00 AMWalk Follow The Elephants

We’ll walk behind or near the elephants just to observe their nature. You’re allowed to take photos from a distance or you can get a little closer if you are not too nervous. The guide will tell you more information on how to take care of the elephants, how much they eat per day, what they like, and many more interesting inside tips.

11.00 AM - 11.30 AMWatch Elephants Bathe In The River

We’ll walk with elephants and follow them to the river to drink water and to bathe in the river. You’ll see elephants play with water while the mahouts help cleaning them in the river. It’s the mahout daily activity with or without any visitors. If you like, feel free to go in the river and help the mahouts. After the bathe, you will see the elephants put mud or dirt on their skin as sun protection. It’s very fun to watch them.

It’s time to change your clothes and go enjoy delicious Pad Thai for lunch. We serve vegan or vegetarian Pad Thai only. You can enjoy seasonal local fresh cut fruits after Pad Thai.

Solo Traveller

This elephant home is one of the most ethical elephant sanctuary you can visit. You can get up close for some time but the rest you will watch them eat and bathe in the river. It’s one of the best experience you can get while traveling in Thailand.
