Chiang Mai Elephant Camps

Chiang Dao Elephant Training Center

At Chiang-Dao Chiang Mai Elephant Training Center we make sure that every one of our 32 elephants are happy. Each elephant has his or her own mahout to care for on a one-on-one basis. Elephants are only worked during the mornings, with their afternoons and nights free to roam the surrounding natural forest. With such a vast area filled with hills and the Ping River, elephants can wander through the forests as well as take baths in the river. We believe that if our visitors see that our elephants are happy, they in turn are happy with their experience.

We therefore invite visitors who are interested in the natural environment of the north of Thailand and who love and are interested in elephants to come to visit us. Here, at Chiang-Dao Chiang Mai Elephant Training Center, you will be able to get a real feel for the enchanting elephants in their natural habitat. Get away from the hustle and bustle of life and experience a unique and memorable time with our eco tourism as well as homestay programs, both of which showcase the simple, raw and traditional ways of life of Thailandís elephants and their human companions throughout the centuries.

You will learn all about elephants Ė their nature, their individual traits, their lifestyles, their talents and their charms. You will also get a glimpse at the unique and very real relationships between elephants and their mahouts, often each otherís best friends for life. Come and experience the joys of the Asian elephants at Chiang-Dao Chiang Mai Elephant Training Center.

Mae Sa Elephant Camp

In the lush tropical jungle of Chiang Mai's Maesa Valley , a big family of elephants lives side by side with their mahout caretakers. "Maesa Elephant Camp" is home to one of the largest assembly of elephants in the north of Thailand.

Our philosophy is to create a natural and healthy environment for the elephants while working to conserve and breed them,due to the dwindling number of Asian elephants left in the wild.
