Elephant Nature Park is a unique project set in Chiang Mai province, Northern Thailand. Established in the 1990’s our aim has always been to provide a sanctuary and rescue centre for elephants. The park is located some 60km from the city, and has provided a sanctuary for dozens of abused elephants from all over Thailand.
Set in a natural valley, bordered by a river, and surrounded by forested mountains the area offers a timeless glimpse of rural life.
