THE ANANTARA GOLDEN TRI­AN­GLE Ele­phant Camp & Re­sort in Chi­ang Rai is justly proud of its Dara Camp, a cen­tre for re­spon­si­ble in­ter­ac­tions with – and not sat on – its cast of gen­tle giants. Em­bark on a jour­ney into the jun­gle with the ele­phants and their ma­houts on their daily walk, and watch as these beau­ti­ful crea­tures splash in the river or play in the mud, snack on leaves from nearby branches and so­cialise with the herd. The res­i­dent vet­eri­nar­ian or bi­ol­o­gist ex­plains the an­i­mal’s be­hav­iour along with of­fer­ing more spe­cial­ist in­sights into their bi­ol­ogy and con­ser­va­tion. For an ad­di­tional charge, you can savour a pic­nic pre­pared by Anantara chefs, sur­rounded by the ele­phants as they too take a snack. Es­tab­lished in 2003 as a tra­di­tional ma­hout vil­lage, the camp works along­side t he Golden Tri­an­gle Asian Ele­phant Foun­da­tion to per­form street res­cues, pro­vide em­ploy­ment and en­sure com­fort to ele­phants, t heir ma­houts and their fam­i­lies. Rates start from US$987 per night for the Dis­cov­ery Ex­pe­ri­ence. To learn more, go to www.gold­ent ria ngle. anantara.com
