Elephant in the Zoom
Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has partnered with the pioneering elephant welfare charity, The Human Elephant Learning Programs Foundation (H-ELP) to launch a global service that stars elephants in Zoom video calls live from their natural habitat in Northern Thailand’s ancient jungle. The ‘Elephant in the Zoom’ alows viewers to participate in a unique and once-in-a-lifetime elephant experience.To reserve your virtual pachyderm encounter and support elephant welfare, click here.
The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) serves as a home for elephants, mahouts and their families - rescued primarily from illegal logging camps, the street, or elephant shows.
Support our work by sponsoring an elephant - it takes approximately USD 18,000 to look after a single elephant a year, and your money will be put towards food, general upkeep and medical care.
Arrive at the airport and travel by private car to Chiang Saen. Board a longtail boat and cruise the Mekong to the confluence of two rivers where the Golden Triangle begins. Pulling up at the jetty, a welcoming committee of gentle giants greets you.
The Explorer's Arrival takes approximately 1.5 hours and is only available during daylight hours.
