We booked tickets for the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary the day before, however I would recommend booking sooner if possible.
The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is about an hour and 40 minutes’ drive from Chiang Mai. Half- or full-day trips are available.
The whole family will enjoy this jungle elephant experience. The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary near Chiang Mai is one of many elephant sanctuaries in Thailand are now devoted to giving the animals a happy and safe life, where they can eat, sleep, swim and roll in mud to their hearts’ content. In this itinerary, the whole family gets to spend a memorable day with elephants. Learn about elephants’ habits while gathering food (bananas, sugar cane) to hand-feed them, then enjoy a supervised swim with the pachyderms in a waterfall setting. The fun-filled day ends back in Chiang Mai with dinner at Ginger & Kafe, just steps away from the Eurana Boutique Hotel.
