Mahout private training course

Stage d'initiation mahout
With this course you’ll get to share unique moments with your own elephant and experiment the life of the real mahouts. You’ll have plenty of time to play, ride, feed, and bath with the elephant and discover how intelligent he is.

At the arrival at the camp, you’ll meet the professional Mahout who will teach you and take care of you during the course and you’ll be provided with the Mahout outfits. Then you’ll enjoy the elephant show, before visiting the camp and being introduced to your giant partner.

The first moments with the elephant are magical and will give you a lot of sensations and fun. Because this course is totally private, you’ll be free to do what you want and ask all the questions you may think of.

After you’ve been introduced to your elephant and you’ve learned some basics orders, you’ll feed him a little with banana trees (you’ll cut by yourself) and then take a ride (bareback) in the mountain.

A nice lunch with plenty of Thai food will wait for you after this first ride. Then you’ll take the elephant to the “elephant spa”, where you’ll throw buckets of mud at your new friend for its greatest pleasure. You’ll be amazed at how much he likes to rub himself with mud, which is actually very good for his skin.Then, it’s time to bathe with your elephant in the river and have plenty of time to play and brush him. After another ride, it will be time to head back to the camp at around 15:30 (1 day Mahout Training).

Then, you’ll be able to have a nice shower and get changed before we head back to Chiang Mai.
