Absolutely Amazing Bareback Elephant Riding Experience in Thailand
sep. 2020
This was one of my greatest experience in Chiang Mai ever!

Even we are Thais, It was such an unique and amazing experience and we love it soo much!!

We have tried elephant-riding before, we was sitting on wooden carrier. But this one is mind-blowing!

We drove to the camp. Not difficult to find but you need Google maps. Recommend to call for the resevation so that the staffs could prepare the elephants and meals for you in advance.

I think they have a pick-up service from your hotel, please ask them for more information when you call them.

It started with providing us some basic information about the elephants. Then they asked us to get change to mahout clothes. Clean clothes providing with chaning room and showers.

Later they introduced us to meet the herd and let us feed them, pet them, ride on them, even teach us few commands to them. Shortly we started riding on the elephant like a Tarzan!

My girl was named Ruby, very tall and cute. Soon realized that she loved to grab-and-go some snacks along the way. That's cute!

Love so much while we were in the canel with the elephants. They love to play spraying the water. You could even command them to spray the water or kiss on your cheeks. They could also lift you up. with its nose. That's just amazing! So fresh!

While we were riding, we all had a personal mahout to take care all of us. So it's pretty safe in my opinion. The staff and mahout kept asking if we were alright. They were also an amazingly photographter! I was so surprised after seeing all the photos after the trip.

Balancing myself on the elephants was very challenging! Recommend to bring a case with rope that could wear around your neck or a head wrap for a go pro would be a great idea. But if you do not have it, That's just fine. Mahouts could help you take photos as well.

it's ok to come alone or with a friend, but you know, the more the merrier with the herd of elephants! you will have so much fun!

Even it was just few hours, I really had a great moment with my friend, mahouts and of course! this herd of elephants.

Thanks to K.Joe and his team for taking care all of us. Very nice and friendly staffs.

PS. Would I go back? OMG!! YES!!

Absolutely the best elephant experience in Thailand

Hi Guys,

I just came across some pictures from our last visit to you in February 2019.
I just wanted to thank you for some amazing memories of some father / daughter time spent enjoying the elephants, and your wonderful hospitality.
I hope that you make it through the difficult times that we are in at the moment.

Best Regards,
John J, and daughter Pip

Fun with Elephants
feb. 2020
I had the most amazing experience visiting the elephants at Thai Elephant Home. I learned about their care and feeding - being able to feed each one of them bananas and receiving kisses from one of them, even before the banana feast. They are amazing animals and the handlers and staff there are kind and respectful of the animals and the guests.

最高の体験
des. 2019 • Familie
今回2度目の訪問です
前回は友人との訪問でしたが今回は子供4人連れての一泊での訪問でした
裸の象にまたがり1日ジャングルの中を散策したり川で象と一緒に水遊びをしたり
最高の体験ができます
家族との貴重な思い出作りができます

今回は敷地内のコテージに泊まりましたが当然山の中なので食事はゴージャスではありませんが全て手作りでとてもおいしかったです!
竹の中にもち米を詰め炭火で焼いて作る伝統的なご飯を家族全員で料理体験しました

この季節気温の温度差が激しく夜は肌寒く長袖長ズボンが必須になることをお忘れなく!

MARAVILLOSOS DOS DIAS.
des. 2019 • Par
Lo único que se puede decir de esta experiencia es...maravilloso.
Estuvimos dos días, uno con los pequeños y otro en el día en elefante.
Es una delicia estar con los pequeños, paseos con ellos y con sus madres, dándoles de comer y baño en el río.
Con los adultos subes a lomos en ellos, sin silla. Igualmente se les da de comer, al baño de barro y después baño en el río.
Eso en cuanto a la actividad.
En cuanto al personal, no se puede pedir más, trato perfecto, les dejas tu cámara de fotos o video y te graban continuamente. Además te hacen fotos con su cámara y te las envían por correo con muy buena calidad.
En nuestro caso hubo algún problema con algunas de ellas y la verdad es que lo intentaron una y otra vez hasta que lo consiguieron.
Resumen: Todo divino. Totalmente recomendable. Y de maltrato animal nada.

Hooks and Chains
okt. 2019 • Familie
I want to start by saying that I truly understand the complexity of issues facing elephants in Thailand and their caregivers. I care deeply about animals, and the people of Thailand who are charged with caring for elephants that are no longer used in the logging industry and have little natural habitat left to roam freely.

I struggled with how to rate this place. It's not as bad as some I've seen, but I've experienced far better. The elephants here are chained, some even while walking through the forest. That's hard to see, but some elephants need guidance to keep from wandering too far. I can forgive chains when absolutely necessary.

The event that spoiled our day here was the pushing of elephants into tricks in the river. So much so, that one mahout struck an older elephant that was touching a younger one with it's trunk. The hook strike broke the elephant's skin and caused her to bleed. She then rubbed the area repeatedly with the end of her trunk. My 11 year old daughter was completely heartbroken to watch this and spent the rest of the visit angry and on the verge of tears. This was her first experience with elephants and she left very sad.

I would like to this say to the owners of the camp - and all elephant camp owners: I realize that elephants in Thailand are farm animals. It must seem to mahouts and others who have spent their lives with elephants, that for the elephants to be entertaining enough for visitors to want to come they must do tricks or provide rides. The reality, is that foreigners are entertained simply by seeing these magnificent animals. They are new to us and we don't need tricks or riding. We will still come. Actually, more of us will come.

There is a big push in the travel community to spend money in responsibile and sustainable ways. So many travelers reject elephant camps completely because they feel that they won't be able to properly research a camp and will have a poor experience. That is what happened to use today. This camp has perfect reviews, but it has a long way to go in creating an experience that truly benefits the elephants. I hope that it will continue to develop and adopt kinder practices to the elephants in its care.

Unglaublich schöne Erlebnisse
aug. 2019
Wir haben das 2 Tagesprogramm gebucht und wurde zu unserem Höhepunkt unserer Thailandreise. Am ersten Tag stand das Füttern, Reiten und Waschen der Elefanten im Mittelpunkt. Eine unserer Töchter hatte wahnsinnig Angst vor den Elefanten. Mit viel Geduld gelang es den Mitarbeitern von Joe sie den Tieren näher zu bringen. Dafür herzlichen Dank! Am Abend wurde lecker gekocht und wir hatten noch tolle Gespräche mit "T".
Am zweiten Tag waren wir in der Nursery mit 3 Muttertieren und 3 Jungtieren. Wir fütterten, spazierten durch den Urwald und badeten die Tiere.

Vielen Dank Joe und Team für die unvergesslichen Tage!

Moment incroyable

Un moment incroyable avec des gens passionnants et passionnés qui nous accompagnent ! Un investissement qui vaut la peine ; les enfants avaient des étoiles 🌟 dans les yeux ! Nourrir les éléphants, grimper sur leur tête, se baigner avec eux : tout était plus que parfait 👌🏻
Merci de tout cœur

楽しかった!
mai 2019 • Familie
今年のGWは10連休ということで、念願のタイ エレファントホームに家族で行ってきました。
旅行記ブログなどを参考に、メールで直接予約することにチャレンジ。私の英語は中学生レベルですが、翻訳サイトを駆使すればなんとかなりました。PayPalも初めて使ってみましたが問題ありませんでした。
1泊コースのスケジュールは公式サイトに書いてある通りです。1日目は象に乗って山に登り、泥んこ遊びに付き合い、川に入る、と象三昧です。私は落ちないよう常に足に力が入り、ひどい筋肉痛になりました。子どもたちも一人ずつ象に乗せてもらったのですが、背の上で水を飲むなどと余裕でした…。
次の日は子象とのふれあいです。こちらのほうがゆったりスケジュールでしたので、1日目のほうが楽しいかな。朝の掃除の後、朝食前にローカルな朝市に連れて行ってくれたのですが、地元の方々の生活を垣間見れて面白かったです。
持っていくのを忘れて失敗だったのがスパッツです。ゾウの皮膚は硬い!(ちなみに子象は柔らかかった!)貸してくれるユニフォームは長ズボンなのですが、象に乗るとひざ下まで上がってしまい、ふくらはぎが擦れました。あと、ユニフォームの下には濃い色のものを着たほうがいいです。白っぽい水着に泥がしみ込んで取れなくなりました。
2日目にハエくらいの大きさの、日本じゃ見たことない虫に刺されてめちゃめちゃ痛痒かったです。滞在中そんなに虫に刺されなかったので、虫よけを使うのを忘れてたので、油断しました。
写真をたくさん撮ってくれました。サーバーにアップしてくれるので、帰宅後にダウンロードしました。
スタッフの皆さんはとても親しみやすく、朝市でおやつを買ってくれたり、子どもとサッカーしてくれたり、良くしてくれました。子どもたちにとって素晴らしい体験になったと思います。
GWだったせいか日本人ばかりでした(笑)夕飯時にはお酒を飲みながらおしゃべりして一期一会を楽しみました。何回も来ている方や、数日滞在する方など、リピーターが多いようです。我が家もまた訪れたいと思います。

Great experience!
nov. 2018 • Alene
Thai Elephant home was recommended to me by a friend who visited it previously as it is a sanctuary and the elephants aren’t mistreated. Service was great, they picked me up and dropped me off after the visit at my hotel in Chiang Mai. The experience was great. We got to feed the elephants then ride them down to the river while taking in the beautiful scenery. While down at the river took some pictures and splashed around. I’d highly recommend it.
