Seeing an elephant in Thailand has long been a favorite of adventurous travelers, and visiting a Chiang Mai elephant conservation camp gets you close to the magnificent animals while ensuring their preservation and well-being. Here are some of the best ways to experience elephant conservation in Chiang Mai.

Baanchang Elephant Park
The privately owned and operated Baanchang Elephant Park cares for its elephants in a natural habitat with elephant welfare as a top priority. Visitors to the park get an introduction to the behaviors and lifestyles of Asian elephants, while learning how to use signals to communicate with them much like a traditional mahout, or elephant trainer.

Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary
Situated next to a river and rice paddies in rural Northern Thailand near Chiang Mai City, Lanna Kingdom Elephant Sanctuary rescues elephants from circuses and inhumane riding camps, giving them a place to roam freely. Visitors to the sanctuary can interact with the majestic mammals by learning to feed them, walk them for exercise, or make them vitamin balls, all under expert supervision.

Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary
The not-for-profit Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary works with local communities to rescue elephants, allowing them to roam in a semi-wild environment. This facility offers a unique opportunity book a volunteer experience at the sanctuary, where daily activities might include researching behaviors of elephants in their natural environment, taking part in community outreach programs, and learning about traditional hill tribe culture through a homestay program. 

Elephant Nature Park
Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center, provides a natural habitat for rescued elephants, buffaloes, dogs, and cats to heal and live out their lives in peace and comfort. The park offers a variety of visitor and volunteer programs to learn about the conservation work while interacting with the elephant herd.
