A unique experience where you will not only get amazing and beautiful photos with an elephant. You will also know that your money will be helping the elephants, local villagers and ethnic minority girls from Myanmar.

“There are so many elephant “sanctuaries” and “eco” experiences on offer, how would you know which to choose?”

James has worked closely with The Chai Lai Orchid for many years. You can be assured that the elephants that they have rescued are wonderfully looked after by Charlie and his brother, Tiger, their handlers. Currently, there are 5 elephants, all female with the exception of Pakeh, the 3 year old bull elephant. The eco resort is unique, set in a beautiful, natural mountain location and provides several wonderful photo opportunities. Not only created at the resort itself but also at the beautiful, natural river pool and waterfall that the elephants bathe at. The location is off the usual tourist trail and and the resort is a non-profit social enterprise. It provides employment and education to the local villagers as well education and safety to a number of ethnic minority girls from Myanmar.

Not only will you be getting amazing photos with elephants but, you can be happy in the knowledge that the money you spend will be helping the elephants, the villagers and the girls.
