Elephantstay is a working elephants Village in Thailand and provides various programs for tourists. The programs involves living with, caring for and learning about elephants. Your elephant will be relying on you to take care of them and show them the love they deserve and we will show you how. It doesnt take long to realise how unique each of our elephants are and their personalities will delight and touch your heart. You will learn all the basics of being a mahout, riding, feeding, watering and even bathing elephants in the river. Because of the diversity of activities at the Elephant Kraal you will be able to experience many unique facets of elephant life and culture.
You will be issued a comprehensive handbook covering all manner of useful information. Topics include, caring for your elephant, riding techniques, elephant commands, elephant facts, history and culture. You will also receive a great Elephant team member t-shirt.
You will be working with the biggest animal in the world. By learning to take care of them, feeding, watering and bathing you will have a chance to create your own bond with them. Their individuality will teach you about how important it is to contribute to their survival.
The best thing is you will see where your money goes, straight back to the elephants. It costs 1000 baht per day to feed one elephant. Then there is the mahout, medicine and the cost of running a place that is dedicated to providing first class conditions and care and most importantly a sustainable future for the elephants. We are also commited to providing you with the most fantastic and unforgettable experience. By enjoying and emersing yourself in the program, you will be directly contributing to preventing the extinction of elephants. Now, that is an amazing opportunity.
