With “EXPERIENCE” being the prime feature, Our Private Elephant Life Experience is a Private “Hands On” Elephant Program, for ONLY Your Private Party.  (Not Joining with any other Clients or Group Tour)

 • Guests will have the special opportunity to build closeness to an individual elephant.


•Not being part of a large crowd will enable the visitor to spend as much time as they wish experiencing elephant life together..


•This will build a rapport with the elephant in their natural environment far removed from the usual organized tours of Elephant camps.

•We offer the visitor the freedom, flexibility and time needed to get closer to nature.

Exclusive Private Elephant Life Experience


This morning we drive to our Private Elephant Life Experience in Mae Taman Valley. On arrival at the Main Lodge, you will be greeted by your Host, introduced to the “Team” and discuss your program. Here you also change into your Mahout’s Outfit (which you get to keep !), and then meet up with your own Elephant and Mahout.

The first task will be to get to know your Elephant, by bathing them in the River. We then continue with a basic lesson of Elephant Training techniques including Elephant commands in a special dialect of the Karen Language”.  Once this has been mastered, you are off for Short Ride with your own Elephant to practice your skills

There is then also an opportunity to Ride through the Jungle or along the River for about 30 minutes.

 On your return we have time to relax with Refreshments while there is a demonstration of Elephant Artists creating their own Masterpieces…which you can also have a hand in creating (and that you can keep as a souvenir of your visit).

After saying farewell to your Elephant, we have the opportunity to return to the Main Lodge to get changed.

 We then have a nice Picnic Basket Lunch here, after which, we can take a leisurely ride on a bamboo raft, down river for about 30 minutes.  

 This is a wonderful experience to enjoy the beautiful river setting to relax before meeting up with our Vehicle.

On our way back to the Chiangmai, we can also call in to see a local Orchid Garden or other local sightseeing as time permits (to your interest)

  1. ~~We must stress that this Private “Hands On” Elephant Program at Elephant Life Experience is ONLY for your party (NOT Joining with any other Clients or Group Tour), in the comfortable surroundings of our Luxury Private Elephant Camp.~~


While you could book this Program as it is, we would, more usually, incorporate this into an overall Private Program for your Clients, tailored directly to their needs.

Wonderful Trip to Southeast Asia!

By: smiller

Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2015

We just returned from an amazing 2 week long trip to Southeast Asia to include Thailand and Cambodia. Monika at Sixth Star travel helped with every step of the way--from air fare and schedules to hotels to events. If I had questions or changes, Monika was quick to respond and made sure the trip was as I wanted it. All of the details were covered, and we had a stress free phenomenal vacation that was memorable for everyone! I would highly recommend Monika and sixth star to my friends and family-- I felt like I was in good hands all the way, and knew that if I had an issue, Monika would be there to help!

Unfortunate Experience

By: Jeanne

Reviewed on: 10 Dec 2017

Unfortunately, our guide, while a lovely person, seemed totally out of his depth in Bangkok. His normal territory is Chiang Mai and Chiang Rei. I believe there must have been some issue with the normal Bangkok guide(s) and our guide was sent by the company to Bangkok to stand in for another who was unable to guide our group. The owner should probably have been the stand-in!

We used Wanna tours to guide us through Siem Reap Cambodia and Chiang Mei Thailand. A great guide and driver were furnished in each location. They were very helpful and made our trip.
