Established in the 1990’s this is the original elephant sanctuary. Our aim is to provide a sanctuary and rescue center for elephants. The park is located 60km north of the city and provides a sanctuary for dozens of injured, abused and rescued elephants from all over Thailand.
Set in a natural valley, bordered by a river, the park is surrounded by mountains. The park also provides shelter to hundreds of dogs, cats, buffalo’s, horses and pigs. Visits to the park help support our regional projects and offer invaluable opportunities to help elephants and other animal conservation.
Enjoy a full day visit to Elephant Nature Park. Park visits are about spending quality time observing and being with the herd. We do not adhere to a strict schedule. The best way to make the most out of your visit is to relax and to watch and learn from the elephants.
