Det skal I lave

Observe cloud forest elephants and meet the community who care for them

We are dedicated to working in partnership with Karen communities and their captive elephants. The communities are rich in culture and elephants are at the very heart of this. When logging was banned in Thailand in the late 1980’s the mahouts and their elephants had to leave their villages to work in the trekking camps around Chiang Mai. There is now a real desire within the communities to return the elephants back to the forests, where they can live as naturally as possible, deep in their forest habitat. Offering observation only guest experiences.

By partnering with these communities we are able to help them grow sustainable community based projects, where visitors are able to observe the elephants living naturally deep in the forest and spend time immersed in the community learning traditional skills such as fabric and basket making.

Embark on a wondrous journey into the beautiful mountains of northern Thailand and learn about the Karen community and their elephants. Our expert mountain drivers will pick you up in Mae Sot and escort you to the site near the Karen village where you’ll be lead on a tour of the local community. The next day, we’ll head into the forest to observe and learn about the region’s elephants, as well as the surrounding forest ecosystem. During this time you’ll learn about traditional local culture and observe elephants roaming in the forest.

This is a wonderful experience. It was so special to be in such a rural environment, and to be a part of such a unique culture of truly happy people. The elephant experience was incredible and to see these majestic creatures living their lives in true safety and forest freedom was a dream come true. It was also very refreshing to live simply, without all the "creature comforts" we all think we need, but we really don't. It was great to pare down to basics and just be in the moment.
