BEES Elephant Sanctuary

Welcome to BEES Elephant Sanctuary.  After two such difficult years in 2020, our love and thoughts are with everybody and we hope you are safe, in good health and able to visit us soon! We are located in a stunning area of rural Thailand, South-West Chiang Mai in the district of Maechaem. We believe you have found us as you are a responsible traveler looking for an ethical experience with elephants in Thailand. BEES – Burm and Emily’s Elephant Sanctuary is at the forefront for elephant welfare in a constantly changing and evolving world. We feel it is our responsibility to lead by example and encourage the highest welfare standards possible.
