Elephant Jungle Sanctuary a MUST!
Trazrn, 18-11-2019
This was an unbelievably amazing experience. Highly recommend and 5 stars is not enough. The staff was so much fun but very informational as well. You could tell they love the elephants and the elephants love them. To be able to feed, bath and care for these beautiful animals in their natural environment for just a few hours was something I personally will never forget. If we knew they had overnights’ stays we may have opted for that cause once you are there, you don’t want the experience to end. Truly spectacular, so much fun, once in a lifetime, DO NOT MISS!!!!! Bring your bathing suit, towel and a change of clothing. Cameras are a must and a plastic phone protector or waterproof camera recommended cause.. you are going to get muddy and wet (for the full experience!) AWESOME and AMAZING!!!!!
Incredible Experience

The Elephants seem really happy. The team goes out of its way to make them comfortable. Great experience and great explanations on how they think of treating the animals

We went as a family (husband, wife, 13 and 12 year old) and we all had such a great time! It was fascinating to learn about the elephants but then we got to slowly, and safely, interact with them. We were in a fairly small group so we each had plenty of time with the elephants. Bring a change of clothing, a swimsuit and flip flops as you will get a little dirty and messy.

The ride from Chiang Mai was about 1.5 hours so if you get car sick - take something to settle your stomach before the trip starts. You get a little meal at the end of the program which is pretty good.

Overall, excellent! Thank you!
Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is the real deal - ethical and amazing! This is the one to go to.

It is hard to summarize the feelings I experienced being in the presence of these incredible, smart, beautiful animals, but the key to the experience was Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. There is no riding here, no tricks, no discipline with hooks or pulling by the ears - these elephants are very much at choice, and you respect their space! In return they allow us to feed them, wash them, rinse them, and touch them and be in their presence. The ride out is an adventure in itself - we went to Camp 2, high in the mountains and up and down incredibly wild roads. If you have back issues or mobility issues as my partner does, you'll appreciate paying a little extra to get a private transfer in a 4 wheel drive rather than the pick-up truck ride usually provided. And as to the mobility thing - the staff went above and beyond to help provide a fabulous experience and support so he could experience as much as possible. We were outrageously well cared for! We did the full day option and I'm so glad we did because it was hard enough leaving after a full day (they do have overnight options!). Our leader had a fabulous sense of humor - a Thai trait indeed but he was extra wonderful and funny, educating us about elephant care and health and history. Elephants eat - a LOT and constantly - so they have only a small number of elephants in each camp, but one of the great things about Camp 2 is that it is walkably close to Camps 1 and 7, se we got to meet 3 camps worth of elephants, including the silly, playful 2.5 year and 3 years olds who totally stole the show.The time with the elephants - well, you can never get enough. I would have loved far more time in the mud pit giving them their exfoliating massage and then rinsing them in the cool waterfall pool - it all happened so fast - but once gain, this is their choice - when an elephant wants to move you get out of their way. There was something extra-special knowing this animal was choosing to let me touch it or take my picture next to it, and true magic was when I got to place my hand on the pregnant side of an elephant 1 year and 5 months into her pregnancy and feeling the baby move within her. We drove past many other "elephant camps" and supposed sanctuaries, may with names like this one, but don't be fooled. This is the most ethical. We saw others were there were fences, small space, riding, massive crowds - but EJS keeps groups small and non-overwhelming for the animals, ensuring animals and people alike have a great experience. At the end of the day I looked back and saw a young elephant tender playing with one of the babies, and most of the adult elephants had started to climb the steep mountain to graze in the jungle as they were born to do.I can't speak highly enough for our experience with both the staff and the elephants - and they take tons of pictures a videos too - still waiting for ours to be posted and I can't wait!
