KANTA Elephant Sanctuary

KANTA ELEPHANT SANCTUARY in Chiang Mai, Thailand, was founded in 2015 and it is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project for Elephants. KANTA ELEPHANT SANCTUARY offers visitors an enjoyable opportunity to spend quality time with elephants in their natural home, as well as gain an insight into their history and behaviour, and create cherished lifelong memories of their time spent with these amazing animals with friendly, happy elephants in a safe and sustainable environment. They have a No Hook, No Ankle Chain and No Riding policy!

KANTA ELEPHANT SANCTUARY offer a retirement home for all elephants who have previously worked hard for tourism entertainment or in the logging industry. Feed, walk with, and observe our beautiful rescued elephants as they roam throughout the sanctuary, socialise and bathe naturally in our huge fresh water lagoons, and cover themselves in lovely thick mud, as they would in the wild. 

Their mission is to provide as many elephants as possible with the good health, freedom and happiness they truly deserve. They use their progressive and ethically responsible approach to elephant eco-tourism as a platform to raise awareness and educate people from Thailand and around the world about elephant care and the plight of the Asian elephant.

KANTA ELEPHANT SANCTUARY hope is to lead by example, and contribute to a positive change in the perception of elephants; to witness a future where elephants are not ridden, poached, overworked, or abused, and are instead treated with care, love, and respect.
