Our elephant jungle sanctuary and location

License Number 24/00606

Mae Wang Elephant Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project located approximately 65 kilometers
from Chiang Mai city in the Mae Wang Pratumuang village.

This first Karen hilltribe elephant sanctuary is locally organized by those who are concerned about the welfare of elephants in Thailand

Our mission is to care for as many elephants as possible maintaining good health, independence and the happiness they truly deserve. We use our progressive and ethically responsible approach to elephant eco-tourism as a platform to raise awareness and educate people from Thailand and around the world about elephant care and the blight of the Asian elephant.

In the Mae Wang Pratumuang Village Elephant Sanctuary, we enforce a strict no-riding policy. We do not make our elephants work, perform or do any activity outside their natural jungle behavior.
