Patara Elephant Camp,
Thailand, North and East
Info : Patara Elephant Camp
Patara Elephant Farm is a Thai owned and managed farm in the hills outside Chiang Mai with a focus on elephant health-care and breeding management. Unlike some elephant camps where the elephants seem to just perform for tourists, here you can have an unforgettable experience learning about the project itself and the skills needed to handle and care for an Elephant. You will learn how to approach, mount and direct an elephant and you will spend the day with your new found friend in the jungle. You’ll even learn about the relationship between mothers and their baby elephants, elephant skin care and about the meaning of elephants in Buddhist culture. There will be time spent bathing the elephant at a waterfall/stream and you will ride bareback as a mahout (elephant owner) would. This is a wonderful additon to your elephant holiday in Thailand.

Every guide, every driver, every tour, every pick-up etc was brilliant... We always felt we were in harmony with local community, not a voyeur looking in... Jake in Chang Mai was amazing. But everyone was first class.
