Mae Sa Elephant Camp Chiang Mai is a privately owned elephant camp less than one hour from Chiang Mai. It is located in an idyllic forested setting with with a waterfall welcoming you as you enter. The camp currently has 73 elephants and approximately 80 mahouts. Although technically owned by the camp, most of the elephants go home with the mahout to their villages each night. Food is supplied twice a day for the elephants at the camp. There is a full-time vet – Ronachid who constantly checks on the elephants. The mahouts are also very aware that the elephants must not be abused and they check on each other to make sure the elephants are all treated well. The villagers are able to generate income at the camp by selling bananas and souvenirs to the guests. Everything is very clean and well managed with concern not only for the elephants and the mahouts, but for the environment and surrounding villagers as well.
