Start your day as an elephant caregiver with pickup close to 8am at your Chiang Mai accommodations. In a comfortable tour vehicle, depart the city and journey through the Thai countryside to the Baanchang Elephant Park.
Once you arrive, you'll meet the park's staff and learn about the center's mission to provide elephants with the best possible quality of life. Start out learning how to cook sticky rice, a nutritional food that helps the elephants maintain the correct weight. Help the guides feed the elephants, then learn about the elephants' backgrounds, behaviors, and daily health care. Embark on a walk into the jungle, a daily practice that helps the elephants keep fit.
Refuel with a traditional Thai lunch, accompanied by bottled water, tea, and coffee. You'll return to Chiang Mai for drop-off around 5pm.
