Overview

Help care for elephants at Baanchang Elephant Park on this 8-hour volunteer program from Chiang Mai. Visit the Elephant Paper Dung Factory to see how the elephants' waste is put to good use. Learn about the conservation efforts for the Asian elephants in Thailand. As Baanchang is dedicated to the elephants' well-being, there is no elephant riding on this tour. Round-trip transportation from your Chiang Mai accommodations and a traditional Thai lunch are included.
  • 8-hour experience helping care for elephants at Baanchang Elephant Park
  • Help exercise and feed the elephants under the supervision of trained staff
  • Learn about the park's conservation efforts, as well as Asian elephant biology and behavior
  • Visit the Elephant Paper Dung Factory
  • Lunch included
  • Pickup and drop-off from Chiang Mai hotels
Be ready for pickup at your hotel at 8:30am, then climb into a comfortable tour vehicle bound for the Baanchang Elephant Park. Relax and enjoy the scenery during the 1-hour ride, which passes through jungle, by local villages and shops. 

As you enter the park, you'll see the resident elephants bathing and playing in a man-made pond. Meet the park's staff and change into your extra set of clothes, then get an orientation on elephant biology and behavior, as well as the park's mission in elephant conservation. 

Visit the Elephant Dung Paper Factory, where you can see how the elephants' waste is made into paper. Learn about the environmentally responsible process, which uses an endlessly renewable resource. 

Next, you'll meet the elephants and get to feed them some bananas and sugarcane while supervised before departing for a walk in the jungle. Elephants need daily exercise and stimulation that these jungle walks help provide. Back at the park, head for the pond to cool off in a refreshing bath near the elephants.

Change back into your street clothes and sit down for a traditional Thai lunch prepared by the park's staff before climbing back in our tour vehicle for the return trip to Chiang Mai.
