This establishment is one of them, so tourists will be glad to know that their money goes to supporting the animals’ welfare. The elephants you see here have been rescued from riding camps and farms.
The friendly staff take delight in educating and informing all visitors about the animals, and the best ways to take care of them. You will learn in-depth knowledge that only comes from years of living and working with elephants within a few hours, and best of all, get to spend time with them. It is clear that the elephants here are well taken cared of, and true to their name, they are indeed happy!
Unlike other elephant sanctuaries, Happy Elephant Care isn’t as touristy, and so you can spend more intimate time with them because the number of human encounters with the elephants is limited. This is important to prevent the elephants from being stressed out. Both young and old elephants thrive in the camp, and it is sure to be the most unforgettable experience you will have in Chiang Mai.
It’s essential to book ahead of time due to the limited interactions allowed. Don’t forget to bring your camera, a change of clothes and sunscreen.
