Half-day Elephant Camp and Mae Sa Waterfalls

Meet some of the gentlest giants on the planet with this half-day elephant camp visit from Chiang Mai. Step into their natural habitat in a verdant tropical valley, a world away from the cages of urban zoos. Get to know these 5,000kg plus creatures whose ancestors were beasts of burden used in wars and the country’s vast timber industry. Increased awareness about these endangered animals has prompted the creation of camps where they live comfortably and can breed to ensure their future. See the special bond between these intelligent animals and their human handlers, called ‘mahout’. Since elephants have long life spans, their relationship with their mahout can span decades. You will be amazed at the skills that they’ve learned: playing darts, giving massages and even painting. Witness their strength as they move huge logs and watch them bathe themselves in a stream. Be prepared to get wet, however; elephants are playful and might just send a stream of water your way. If you’d like, take an optional jaunt with an elephant in the jungle. There’s also the possibility to see a snake show. If you dare, watch the poisonous cobras – from a safe distance. Then cool off at the Mae Sa Waterfall, where the water cascades over eight tiers in the midst of the jungle’s gigantic trees. You’ll understand why this spectacular location is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike. More of nature’s bounty awaits you at an orchid farm. An explosion of colourful blooms will provide the perfect finale to an unforgettable morning. Meet some of the gentlest giants on the planet with this half-day elephant camp visit from Chiang Mai.
