About us

Our Camp

Established in 2016, Into the Wild is an ethical elephant camp located in the south of Chiang Mai. We aim to commit ourselves to providing safe and ethical care for the elephants that have been with our family for generations. After years of supporting our ancestors in the logging and tourism industries, these elephants have become our family members.

Our goal is to give our retired elephants a home that is safe, yet they are able to roam freely and live as naturally as possible. Located in Chiang Mai’s Mae Wang District, our camp is surrounded by lush tropical jungle where our elephants can go foraging for food on their own and enjoy bathing in the river that flows through the camp.

Come and join the ethical elephant experience at Into the Wild Elephant Camp to get a unique opportunity to learn about Thailand’s most majestic creatures as well as how to care for the elephants in the most ethical way.

Giving Back to the Community

At Into the Wild Elephant Camp, we strongly believe in giving back to the local community that plays an important role in our rescue efforts. It has been almost a decade since we began working and cooperating with the Karen hill tribe members from the communities surrounding our ethical elephant camp in Northern Thailand. Apart from employing people in the local community, we also support our neighboring villages by providing them with clothing and supplies.

By supporting the wellbeing of our surrounding communities and the economy while carrying out our mission to save and rescue Thai elephants with ethical practices, we aspire to help build a stronger, more vibrant and effective global community.
