Elephants are magnificent creatures, smart, nurturing, intuitive and creative. Imagine getting up close and personal with the elephants, touching, caressing, and learning to care for them. Train to be a Mahout, in Chiang Mai, Thailand with exclusive Insider Access from Luxe Travel.

This private, hands-on experience will train you to be a Mahout. A Mahout is the Hindi word for an elephant rider, but it means so much more than that. During your Mahout training, you will learn elephant commands as well as how to bathe the elephant, creating a personal connection and trust between you and the beautiful creature. Then, enjoy a gentle elephant ride along the river or into the jungle paradise of Chiang Mai. For fun when you return, the elephants will even teach you how to paint. Their masterpiece will be yours to keep.

After learning how to care for the elephants, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch filled with Thai specialties. Then take a leisurely ride on a bamboo raft down the river. You’ll bid a fond farewell to your elephant as you return to your lodge.
