The Mae Sa Elephant camp and orchid farm

Is an excellent way to get up close and personal with the Asian Elephant. And the Mae Sa Elephant camp provides the most educational and entertaining Elephant show in northern Thailand say the Guinness Book of World Records 2005.

These elephants used to be working animals, but since the reform of the timber industry and the introduction of the 4 x 4, it has been difficult for these domesticated elephants to continue working, so now they spend their days entertaining tourists and giving people rides through the forest, along the paths near the surrounding village.

The elephants also entertain tourists by putting on shows of painting and playing football, although typically they do not perform for long and are very well cared for.

The elephants at the Mae Sa Elephant camp have either been born in captivity or were put to work at a very young age. Elephants typically live for about 90 years and their life in the teak logging industry was the only one they knew. This industry has now largely ended and the elephants cannot be returned to the wild because now they lack the skills of being able to care for themselves, and also have become bonded for life to their keepers. Therefore the Mae Sa elephant camp is one of the kindest ways for these impressive creatures to live their lives.

Have you ever wondered how to train and elephant? During this entertaining tour you will see traditional techniques that have been used for centuries and are still used today. But perhaps one of the nicest parts to the elephant camp is seeing how it is improving the lives of local people from around the area.
