Detailed travel program
Arrival day, transfer Chiang Mai – Mae Sapok
In Chiang Mai we will pick you up at the airport or hotel. We travel by car to our village “Mae Sapok”, which is located about 60 km southwest of Chiang Mai, on the edge of Doi Inthanon National Park. After you have moved into your beautiful large tent in the style of African safari tents, we will drive you to our elephant camp. You will receive an introduction to the behavior and lifestyle of elephants.
Accompanied by your English-speaking guide, you will learn the basics of elephant guiding. You get to know “your” elephant, with whom you will spend the next few days. After lunch at the elephant camp, the program includes bathing your elephant in the river and a ride into the surrounding forests. In the afternoon, you will visit a village of the Karen hill tribe, to which our elephant guides also belong. We will introduce you to the traditional way of life of the Karen people, away from the unreal tourist villages.
