Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project based in Thailand. Founded in July 2014, it began as a joint initiative between members of the Karen hill-tribes of Northern Thailand and Chiang Mai locals who were concerned about the welfare of elephants in Thailand. We currently care for elephants at locations in 4 provinces throughout Thailand - Chiang Mai, Phuket, Pattaya, and Koh Samui.
Our hope is to lead by example and contribute to a positive change in the perception of elephants; to witness a future where elephants are not poached, ridden, overworked, or abused, and are instead treated with care, love, and respect.
We offer Half Day, Full Day, and Overnight Stay options to visit our sanctuary. You will be feeding, bathing and even playing with the elephants. It is also important to us that you learn as much as possible about the elephants and why it is important to protect them. Every program will join special program PE. (physical examination) to elephants.
