Thai Elephant Conservation

  • 7Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STBKKELE

Set in a valley surrounded by forested mountains, you'll work on an internationally-renowned conservation project for neglected and abused elephants. Day to day, you'll assist with the grey giants' veterinary inspections, feed them, and learn about their active social lives. The best part of the day is when you lead the trunky hunks down to the river and enjoy a communal bath - wat-er wonderful experience!

Day 1: Chiang Mai

Arriving early at the Elephant Project Office in Chiang Mai, you'll be briefed on all things trunk-related. Clued-up, you'll then cross 60km of Thai countryside to your traditional huts in the Elephant Park where you can spend the evening getting to know your fellow volunteers.

Day 2 - 6: Volunteer Elephant Conservation Project

You'll wake up bright and early at 7am for breakfast before preparing leaves and fruit for the park's other hungry residents. Having made sure all the four tonne giants are fed and fully-satisfied, you'll then lead the elephants down to the local river for bath time! It's sure to be wet and wild so pack your trunks. For the rest of the day you'll assist with maintaining the park's grounds, caring for the organic garden and clearing up the mountains of elephant dung - a valuable ingredient to one of the world's most expensive coffee brands. There are also opportunities to take part in veterinary inspections, get to know some lovable stray dogs at the rescue project, and enjoy a few cold beers at the on-site bar.

Day 7: Chiang Mai

Your volunteering will come to end at 5pm on the last day when you'll be transferred back to the Chiang Mai office.
