We had a great time feeding the elephants insane amounts of bananas. Mud bathe and rinse off in the river was awesome. The guides were friendly and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. Well worth the price.

We had a great time at the Maerim Elephant Sanctuary. Guides were attentive and knowledgeable. We were able to get close to the elephants and spend the day caring for them. This was my daughter's favorite experience during our trip.

A great learning experience. The place doesnt look like much at first, but the people are amazing. Everything about the sanctuary was fun and definitely worth it.

If you're looking to support a smaller sanctuary that gives you an intimate experience, choose this one. The entire staff was wonderful. Our guides were engaging, fun, and taught us a great deal about these amazing animals. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!

Best guides and best elephants! You won’t be disappointed visiting this sanctuary. Also, the homemade Thai noodle soup is the best and they offer vegetarian as well, in case your worried. Definitely worth the visit and you’re supporting the elephants with your payments.
