Our elephant adventures in a nutshell:
1) We trek through the jungle for a couple hours searching for elephants (realizing quickly that a mahouts job is much more challenging than we realized)
2) Our elephant friends emerge from the trees to join the squad for some fun in the river – what up Mae Boon Yeun, you beaut!
3) The guides & mahouts educate us on ethical elephant conservation, adding another notch to our Responsible Traveler belts.
4) Excellent “elphies” then follow.

These are the faces of some GIVErs after hiking deep into the dense Northern Thailand forest. They camped overnight under the jungle canopy and got the chance to do something few people ever get to do – closely observe semi-wild elephants roaming and foraging in their natural surroundings.

We have learned sooo much from some incredible elephant experts this summer. Here’s what we did in our Elephant Experience Add-on this season! 👇
.
This is a Responsible Travel program that educates participants on the human-elephant conflict and invests your tourism dollars into organizations that promote the welfare and conservation of Asian Elephants.
.
Throughout the week, we travel to four places in Northern Thailand, getting to observe and interact with elephants in many different ways – spending time at an ethical elephant tourist camp, visiting an elephant conservation and veterinary center, volunteering at a sanctuary for elder elephants, and hiking with a herd of semi-wild elephants at a community-based reintroduction project.
.
Every day we are learning from local elephant trainers, mahouts, conservationists, and veterinarians about the complex issues Asian elephants face. More importantly, this is a unique opportunity to witness & support holistic solutions in action.
.
This biggest triumph of this program is that every person who spent this week with us, walked away as a highly educated Asian elephant advocate. The knowledge they’ve spread after this trip has perpetuated awareness on responsible tourism & the complex issues of elephant welfare.
.
We are so excited about the success of our first season and beyond stoked for more of you to have this experience. If this seems like a program you want to be apart of, click the 🔗 link in bio to apply.
