About
We are part of an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project. We have talked with the elephant carers (Mahout) and invited them to join our project. Our special project purpose to take the chain and saddle off of the elephants, like some projects of Elephants nature park. They are our inspiration. We aim to provide a better life for the elephants. In all of our program activities visitors can observe the elephants in nature as well as gain an insight into their history and behavior. We are happy to provide them a safe, loving and secure environment for them to roam free in a natural environment.

Feb 2020
I spent a day at chiang mai elephant home beleiving I have made a great choice for respect and caring for elephants. But I was wrong. The feeding was great but that's all. They pretend that taking a bath with water and mud is good for the elephants but they forced them to sit at the right place for the pictures with us ... They took a bath every hour, it is not freedom and respect for the animals. What an awful feeling when I discovered that they hide to the public that they still used an elephant hook to "take care of elephant". They hide it to the public in a hood cabanon next to the enclosure, some of them hide it under their t-shirt to avoid tourists to see it. So please, if you read this, don't make the same mistake. Just go to a place where you can feed them and watch them but that's all. Many of sanctuaries say they have a real project for caring, but that is not true. They reconverted because "riding elephant" now is not good for money. So now they take baths with tourists. To avoid

Hello Mouchist, sorry that you had this experience. From your experience it's totally difference from other visitors who had visiting us. Not sure if you write a review to the right place. And you wrote a review for one day Hiking and Elephant experience which we did not offer this trip on 26 Feb 2020. And we can not find your name on our visitor list in other days as well. So we are not sure if you were really our visitor or you might wrote the review to the wrong location. The elephants have joined our project " the saddle off" used to be elephants riding and elephant show. We are happy that the owners have see the better life for their elephants and join our project. Elephants can eat up to 16 hours a day. This is the main activity that our visitors use to help feed and care for the elephants. Bathing in the river or mud is also a natural and often repeated activities for them, helping them to cool down and protect their skin from the sun and insects. They NOT take a bath every hour here. Not all elephants participate in this activity. Our elephant caretakers are always observe their behavior which one want to join and which one would rather just walk around or eat more. And the visitors have a choice to help them or just observe them. We don't use a hook to control elephants here. The elephants have areas around to move freely. We offer them home, food and treat them well. We love our elephants and take a good care of them. We put a lot of passion in our project and the elephants found a new home with us. It took a lot of time and effort to provide a better life for these elephants. And we appreciate your support and your understanding.

Not sure I believe the hype
It seems to me that this attraction isn’t so much about ethical treatment of elephants but more “hay we got to eat”
