What you'll do

We are dedicated to working in partnership with Karen communities and their captive elephants. The communities are rich in culture and elephants are at the very heart of this. When logging was banned in Thailand in the late 1980’s the mahouts and their elephants had to leave their villages to work in the trekking camps around Chiang Mai. There is now a real desire within the communities to return the elephants back to the forests, where they can live as naturally as possible, deep in their forest habitat. Offering observation only guest experiences. By partnering with these communities we are able to help them grow sustainable community based projects, where visitors are able to observe the elephants living naturally deep in the forest and spend time immersed in the community learning traditional skills such as fabric and basket making. Embark on a wondrous journey into the beautiful mountains of northern Thailand and learn about the Karen community and their elephants. Our expert mountain drivers will pick you up in Chiang Mai and escort you to the site near the village of Karen where you’ll be lead on a tour of the local community. The next day, we’ll head into the forest to observe and learn about the region’s elephants, as well as the surrounding forest ecosystem. During this time you’ll learn about the local culture, observe elephants in the forest, and camp.
