ASIA'S FIRST WELFARE CERTIFIED ELEPHANT PARK



The Mason Elephant Park & Lodge is incredibly proud to be the first elephant park in Asia to be awarded the Gold Certification from the Asian Captive Elephants Standards.

Asian Captive Elephants Standards (ACES) is an independent enterprise providing elephant camps with the methodology, guidance, and on-site support to ensure all captive elephants are receiving the highest level of welfare possible through a rigorous assessment and audit process conducted by an experienced and dedicated team of elephant specialists, veterinarians, researchers, and conservationists.

Over the last 2 years Mason Adventures has worked closely together with ACES to further develop all aspects of the park for our elephants, staff, and guests alike to continue to uphold a sustainable future for the critically-endangered Sumatran elephant.
