What To Expect

Enter Wildlife Friends Foundation and be welcomed by an education officer who will teach you all about the sanctuary and the Thailand elephants living within it over some morning coffee. After an educational tour around the facilities, you will enjoy a traditional Thai buffet lunch (with options for vegetarians). Take a walk with one of the foundation's beloved elephants at the elephant sanctuary, and watch them bathe and play when you bring them in for a shower. An afternoon tour of the rescue center will bring you up close to hundreds of other rescued species, from bears to langur monkeys; you can even hear the gibbons singing! All this is capped off with a tour of the Midlands and the New Lands, which will further teach the value of a Thailand elephant sanctuary, and how it's become possible to enjoy the company of elephants without rides and without exploiting them.

    Great experience! Thorough explanation of the rescued animals' stories and group interactive experiences were very interesting and fun.
  • Narayan 7 Aug 2018
    I will never forget this trip! We had fun bathing and feeding these gentle creatures. This educational tour/activity is one of the best things that I have experienced-ever-this lifetime.. I’ve learned a lot from the volunteers...I admire their love and compassion for the animals. They were able to rescue not just the elephants, but also 600 plus animals. After the trip, our volunteer guide thanked us for the donation and help, even just for a day. I almost cried...but I’m glad that I didn’t because I’m with other people and they might feel it’s awkward...but it’s really a fulfillment that I was able I help somehow. Living in this cruel world, it’s amazing to witness people who are ready to help and support animals. I know we can’t abruptly stop animal exploitation, but we can always help by spreading awareness on how animals should be treated. 💕

    Our tour began with one of the female elephants, Boonmee—where she is kept near the rescue centre. She was rescued from a riding camp in 2012 where she was very malnourished and blind in one eye, so we had to stand on one side of her so she could see us. Then our tour guide took us around the grounds of the rescue centre and see the other animals residing here including gibbons, bears, macaques, langurs and many more hearing of their depressing back stories. After the walking tour of the enclosures, a Thai buffet lunch with vegan options (yay) was served. While eating lunch, some of the elephants walked freely around the sanctuary. After lunch, we took one of the rescued elephants for a walk (as part of their daily routine) and feed them with fruits. The elephant assigned to our group was Boonmee, a 60+ year old elephant. She spent the early years of her life working in the logging industry before spending 25 years working in the tourist industry. She spent years carrying tourists on her back and being chained to a tree in the evenings. After feeding her with pineapple and watermelon, we gave her a shower and scrub down. It was a wonderful experience, in the picture you can see that the elephant was smiling and not put in a lot of stress. You can check other elephants and their stories here (http://www.thaielephantrefuge.org/). The final part of our journey was to meet the other elephants housed at the sanctuary, they have 23 in total at the time of our visit last July 30, 2018. I am very passionate about organizations like this, attempting to rescue as many animals as possible. It was such a reward to be able to participate in their daily activities and I look forward to going back and helping as often as possible during my time in Thailand. Going to WFFT was definitely a once in a lifetime experience for me and I honestly could not have asked for a better way to spend my 21st birthday (advanced!!) than walking among elephants in Thailand. Thank you, Mita, Daddy and Mommy!

    This is my personal favorite for this trip. I have long wanted to experience elephant encounter but Im not the type who supports the zoo. I booked a full day tour and rountrip car to Bangkok. The car arrived about an hour before the scheduled pick up time. The WFFT is doing a great job in conserving the wildlife. I am definitely recommending this to my friends who's visiting Thailand soon.
  • TUNG 20 Jul 2018
    This is the best experience i have ever had. This programme is very educational. What they are doing is very meaningful. I recommend everyone take part in this programme.
  • Jonathan 12 Jul 2018
    Carers are very passionate about the animals. Be sure to take insect repellant. There is a small shop there where you can buy crisps etc
  • WAIMAN 5 Jul 2018
    very good and educational. it is a really good experience for both the adult and the kids. I like it very much
  • Jan Jericha 26 Jun 2018
    The guides are very informative and shared interesting facts about the animals. Looking at the animals, you will see they are well-taken care off and being fed on a regular basis. It was such an amazing experice having the chance to walk and shower them. Highly recommended this activity.
  • ADRIANA 23 Jun 2018
    Amazing experience to take awareness of the cruelty and deplorable situation that the animals from Thailand have to deal with because of the tourist attractions. It was an unique experience to do and very touchy. The volunteers were very kind, the lunch so tasty and we helped cleaning and feeding elephants which was very funny. We chose the pick up from Bangkok and it was a great service, a little bit expensive but very punctual and it was a private car for the two of us.
  • Ann Gee 19 Jun 2018
    Got panicked when the pickup didn't arrive after 30mins waiting time. Had to call them to ensure it was still on the way. Overall an enlightening and fruitful experience to visit this objective-oriented place. Kids were excited to be able to walk with elephants, hand-feed and bathe them the first time, really up close and personal.
