The Elephant Village you will be introduced to was opened in 1973 and serves as a sanctuary for former working elephants who were once used as the backbone of heavy lifting in the jungles of Thailand. No longer able to be used in that capacity they come to this particular camp for care as their habitats continue to diminish throughout the country. This safe haven is a non profit private company with all proceeds going to the guardianship of all elephants on the property.
Your amazing trek through the jungle is a once in a lifetime adventure that will bring you up close and personal with these mesmerizing mammals. From the ox cart ride to the Thai lunch this full immersion amongst one of Asia's most treasured animals will permeate your mind for the entirety of your vacation.
