“Voluntourism” as one of our repeat travelers calls it,
is a method of travel we highly recommend. We encourage travelers to embark on a transformative journey with our Volunteer Travel experiences, where adventure meets altruism. We believe that travel has the power to change lives, not just for those who explore new horizons, but also for the communities they visit. Our carefully curated volunteer programs offer a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the heart of a destination, making a meaningful impact through hands-on, sustainable projects. Whether you’re passionate about wildlife conservation, education, or community development, we have a range of options to suit your interests and skills. Travel with a purpose, create lasting memories, and leave a positive mark on the world as you explore, learn, and give back. Join us in making a difference, one journey at a time.
A message from our Founder:
In November 2022 while traveling with our Serenity in Siam V Group in Chiang Mai, we visited Elephant Nature Park. While there, our ENP escort introduced me to Lek Chailert who had just arrived with a wagon cart full of puppies she had rescued from an Alligator Farm. She was interested in hearing more about Get Out There Tours+Travel and I told her I was bringing a larger group in February 2024 to ENP. She encouraged me to have them stay overnight and volunteer and our ELEPHANT AMBASSADOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM was then formed. Our trip in February 2024 has 8 of our 17 group members participating in this amazing experience and we are extremely excited to make this a regular part of our Chiang Mai Itineraries. Additionally, I will be spending a week on a solo trip to the area in January 2025 and will be volunteering with at ENP for that entire week. We’d love to craft a custom Elephant Ambassador Program experience for you. Just reach out and we can get the planning started.” ~ Laura Stegeman, Founder, Get Out There Tours+Travel
