Monday to Friday: Volunteering Project

Morning

You'll start each day with an early morning breakfast and a briefing on the day ahead. The mahouts will then lead groups of volunteers into the forest in search of elephants. The day is mainly spent observing the habits of these grey giants but there may be chances to assist with health inspections. You'll collect data on their social interactions, food sources, and forest biodiversity - keep an eye out for gibbons, deer, snakes, birds, and a variety of insects and spiders!

Lunch

Volunteers are encouraged to assist the Mahouts in cooking traditional dishes but there are also packed lunches available.

Afternoon

You'll hike back to the village for an afternoon of community-based activities. There are opportunities to teach English at the local school, weave baskets with a local weaver, play football with the Mahouts, cook with the homestay family, or simply explore the beautiful surroundings.

Saturday to Sunday

Enjoy free time to relax around the village and travel back to Chiang Mai.
