Journey To Freedom Thailand's Best Elephant Voluntary Project

Sign Up For The Journey Of A Lifetime…

Ever wanted to volunteer with elephants? Well why not join Elephant Nature Park’s premier voluntary project, Journey to Freedom.

You’ll spend 7 nights at a camp located on the outskirts of a tribal village deep in the Thai jungle. Meet the inspirational tribesmen of the Karen tribe as you spend intimate time with their rescued elephants.

Feel alive as you gather, build and feed these gentle giants. Contribute to the Karen tribe as you visit their villages and schools. This truly is what it means to be alive!
