- Authentic Elephant Experience
- All Inclusive Experience
The elephant experience that we offer is a very personal experience. Our goal is to provide our guests with an opportunity to get to know our elephants and be at the center of our daily care routine for the elephants. We typically only allow 6-8 people per day trip. We've set it up this way to make a great experience for both the customer and for the elephants. We've done our best to make this experience as sustainable and eco friendly as possible. This is not your typical tourist experience. This is an authentic elephant experience with karen tribal people. We'll take you on a journey to both learn and experience first hand what it takes to care for asian elephants. It is a generations old tradition in the Karen tribe to look after our elephants as apart of our family and we look forward to having you join us in this experience of a lifetime.
