The first elephant camp in Thailand where guests can ride elephants bareback.
Thom's, The Oldest Elephant Camp in Pai and the first elephant camp in Thailand where visitors can ride elephants without a seat, play with them and swim together with them in the river. Thom grew up with the elephants, played with them as a child, and knows how much fun it is to spend time with these wonderful animals.
Thom's Elephant Camp is recommended in many guidebooks and has won awards from Tripadvisor. Thom's is also government certified a exceeds the standards required for non-performing elephants.
In addition to elephant trekking we offer Mahout (elephant handler) training, bamboo rafting, sightseeing tours, hill tribe visits, and flexible combinations of these activities. You can even get married on an elephant's back! The camp has excellent accommodation facilities, with bungalows, rooms, a camping area and hot tubs with natural hot spring water.
Pom Paem is the smallest lady of the camp, but she will not grow any more, though she loves to eat a lot.
Pom Paem is 24 years old, she is really playful and friendly. She is adorable! She smiles all the time, she plays football, but can be lazy when it comes to feeding, she will grab a banana from your hand but she would much rather have you feed it directly in her mouth. She will say thank you when you feed her. Tons of personality with this pretty girl!
