Our elephant Camp is a small family camp in the region of Mae Wang, close to Chiang Mai. As we are people from the White Karen hill-tribe, we used to live for thousand of years with elephants in our villages.
But nowadays, villagers don't use anymore elephants to help them in the jungle and for agriculture, and we have less and less animals in the forest. At Thong Elephant Sanctuary we want to save them and offer them a nice place to live freely.

Small & non touristy elephant sanctuary

Why don't we let people ride our elephants? The spines of elephants are not the same as horses. They cannot support any weight from above, so riding causes long term harm. And because we do love our elephants, they are a part of our family, we do not want that people to ride them. Discovering and sharing are fun too!

We only accept small groups, about 20 people per day.
We are a small family camp, really different of all the big elephants camps you will find along the way in Chiang Mai, with buses of tourists everyday.

No chains, no hook, no riding, but so much fun and feelings :)
