  • We couldn’t stop smiling and laughing during our half day tour! Truly magical creatures that were happy and well taken care of. Our tour guide, Alex, was very informative, funny and a joy to be around...  more »
  • It is a fantastic place to see elephants in Chiang Mai. They are loose and you can approach them, feed them, bathe with them and give them vitamins. Elephants are in very good condition and approach tourists. They also explain how the nurons, the conditions in which they live and how the park is based. After the visit you get a homemade Pad Thai and you can contribute money to the association.

  • Our tour guide, Alex, was AMAZING. Right on time, spoke perfect English, intelligent, great conversation, made us feel safe, I couldn’t recommend him more. The Sanctuary: What an amazing adventure for our honeymoon. We booked a full-day, small group tour and it was nothing short of spectacular. The Mahouts (elephant trainers) are one-of-a-kind and treat you like family (hugs on the way out). The facility is clean and provides you with everything you could need: water, snacks, full attire (crocks, hats, top & bottoms), a towel & shower. The Pad Thai lunch was also mouthwatering good. The activities were hands-on. Cutting banana trees, chopping sugar cane, mud bathing with elephants and washing them down, feeding, making/giving them vitamin balls. The elephants are cared for through a one-on-one relationship with a Mahout. They are extremely happy, playful (especially 3-year old Lanna), fed, well-respected by staff, and thoughtfully taken care of.
  • What an incredible experience! We had the opportunity to visit Lanna Kingdom through a Lanna Kingdom Tour package. The elephant sanctuary was our favorite part by far! We wanted a cruelty free experience and that is exactly what we got! We spent all day playing with the elephants, sing and dancing, collecting food for them, bathing them, and making treats for them. We loved the staff- you could tell how passionate they all were about their job. They all had different stories about the elephants and were able to give us background information on how they were each saved from a dangerous and threatening environment. I'm so glad places like Lanna Kingdom exist- it is truly an incredible experience!
