Patara Elephant Farm, Thailand

Patara Elephant Farm, Thailand


Posted on Sep 8, 2013 in Thailand, Travel

In March 2010 I paid a day-long visit to this renowned elephant farm in northern Thailand. In addition to riding the elephants bareback (which scared the crap out of me), we also learned how to care for, clean and feed the animals.

Patara runs an elephant rescue and breeding programme, with the intention of increasing the welfare and numbers of Thailand’s elephants. You can read more about their projects on their website.
