  • One of the most amazing experiences I have had. This is a "must do" in Chiang Mai. Ethical elephant sanctuary. No hooks, chains, or riding. No cages. 100% rescue elephants bought from zoos, private owners, logging companies, etc. These elephants are well taken care of, and happy! Reasonably priced. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, wonderful atmosphere, and loving elephants. My only regret was having to leave. Wish I could have spent days or weeks with these beautiful creatures.
  • AMAZING. Get to spend a lot of quality time with the elephants. You can tell the guide was very passionate about his job and loves what he does. Lunch was good and plenty of drinking water. They even have a locker for you to store your stuff so you dont have yo worry about it. The pictures that were taken were very good as well.
  • This was the best experience ever. Elephants are treated very well. You can feed them and bathe with them (or have them give you a bath) and you learn a lot about these magnificent animals. We only did the half day but we wish we could’ve stayed a lot longer! Loved it!
  • Fantastic experience, spending time with magnificent animals and their keepers. Making food to feed them, learning about each elephant and getting to see their individual characters felt like a true privilege. There is no riding them and although you can see the keepers do have some influence on them (these are domestic animals) , at no time did we see any form of cruelty. Thank you to Nine our guild for making this a fabulous experience and answering all of our questions.
  • Great experience! As soon as we got there they provided us a nice lunch and fresh fruit. After that we started preparing the natural medicine for the elephants, we fed them with bananas and we joined them into the water. The guide is a really nice guy, really competent and pleasant to answer any question. Definitely recommend!
