If you’re planning a holiday in Northern Thailand, make sure to leave room in your itinerary for a Chiang Mai elephant safari. Joining an elephant safari is one of the most unforgettable experiences you can have in Southeast Asia. Your private villa in Chiang Mai should be able to help you arrange a customized adventure based on your schedule and preferences.
A Chiang Mai safari lets you see elephants up close, and you will be wowed by their elaborate skills. A typical adventure begins when you are picked up from your villa and driven to Mae Tang, an area north of Chiang Mai. There you will get to approach these gentle giants and watch them demonstrate their amusing skills during an entertaining elephant show. You will then go on an elephant ride off to a hill tribe village where you can feast on a buffet meal. Some Chiang Mai safari packages also include bamboo rafting and ox carting. If you are looking to be more adventurous, you can choose a package that involves bare back riding and a trek up a mountain.
On your way back to your private villa, you may be taken to a Thai butterfly and orchid farm. Would you like to see tigers up close? You have the option to visit the Tiger Kingdom, which is near to your private villa in Mae Rim. You can also drop by the famous Elephant Poopoopaper Park to see colorful paper products made from—you guessed it—elephant poo.
Your Chiang Mai safari tour includes private transport, pick up and drop off at your private villa, all entrance fees, and lunch. You will be guided by a licensed English speaking tour guide. Your private villa in Chiang Mai can arrange this special tour just for you and your family or group of friends. You won’t have to join other tourists and will be provided with your own driver, private vehicle, and tour guide.
