Please note :

  • Some visitors may experience skin allergies or mild sensitivities as a result of riding the elephants. If you suffer from sensitive skin we recommend that you wear legging style trousers beneath the clothing we provide as an extra precaution.
  • Due to unforeseen weather conditions, there may be times during the rainy season (May-September) which results in the local river flooding and therefore becoming dangerous to cross. Unfortunately, this may restrict the accessibility to the elephant mud spa area.
  • Nevertheless, this will not effect the program any further and guests will still have the opportunity to spend one on one with their elephants and enjoy bathing time in a smaller river.
  • Thai Elephant Home has no control over this situation and can only apologise in advice should the weather prohibit the mud experience.
    • Children under 6 years pay 500Baht per day.
    • Children 7 - 12 years 50%.
    • Children riding alone need to pay full price.
