Elephant Sanctuary Thailand
Location: Chiang Mai
If you love the environment and have a passion for elephants, then don’t miss your opportunity to visit the Thai Elephant Home!
The Thai Elephant Home was founded by Nayok Satien and is run by trusted manager, Joe. One you arrive at the sanctuary, you’ll get to meet Joe, his friendly wife and adorable son Oishi. For years the owner wanted to give something back, to help the elephants that he had spent his lifetime around. As a traveling salesperson, Nayok had access to every area of the country, where the locals learned to trust his advice and knowledge when it came to elephants.
The sanctuary is based on three core foundations, eco-tourism, conservation, and environmental sustainability.
If you want an elephant experience you won’t soon forget, then be sure to visit the Thai Elephant Home!
