Our previously top secret development opened in November 2019. Dubbed ‘Safari’ our second location here in Chiang Rai is 11.5 time bigger than our first and covers an impressive 460 acres of forest, grassland and lakes. Our dedicated team of local farmers, woodsman and elephant lovers have been working hard to rebuild and replant an entire ecosystem for elephants to live in.
This much bigger location will give us the space to endeavor to get elephants used to living without chains, mahouts and in social groups again. Key steps that are needed for progressing elephants from an intensive level of handling to one by which they can live by themselves as naturally as possible.
