Elephants are some of the most majestic and noble creatures on the planet. They are absolutely revered and worshipped in Asian countries, such as Thailand. Elephants symbolize divinity, strength, longevity and so much more to the native people. As volunteers, we have the exclusive opportunity to interact with and experience the grandeur of these amazing beings. Our activities include preparing their food and feeding them, lathering them in mud to moisturize and clean their skin and taking them to the water to finish the bathing process. It is a once-in-a-lifetime bucket list experience that you won’t ever forget.
The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is one of the best elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai, the track record of sustainable and ethical treatment speaks for itself. We are blessed with the opportunity to volunteer at this outstanding sanctuary with some hands-on activities for volunteers to truly experience all that is wonderful about the elephants of Thailand. Our trained guides give visitors insight into the behavior and the personal history of the elephants. The elephant mahouts help people realize incredible life experiences such as feeding the elephants by hand or bathing elephants in Chiang Mai.
