Our StoryChiangmai Elephant land of Elephant Retirement Park

Elephant retirement park is a grassroots initiative whose mission is to provide a nurturing space for elephant. Our aim is to provide a haven for abandoned elephant, and to simply love and respect all living beings. Also camping events for people to enjoy nature, learn about sustainable living and spend time with the elephants. Elephant Retirement Park is a home for retired working elephants, at the Baan Eieag village. Observe how elephants rehabilitate into forest life after decades of abuse, and imagine an environment with happy elephant roaming around the park, the weather is comfortable all year round for the visitor and elephant.

The camps founder, Adulwit khamya, better known as Noi, has created a sustainable habitat for the elephants to live in a safe and natural environment, free from profiteering and neglect. At the elephant park family units are never separated and herbal medicines are used to keep the animals healthy and enjoy a better quality of life.
