    We were in Thailand for 14 days and this by far was the most enjoyable part of the trip. You can tell the elephants are well taken care of and you will have a wonderful time feeding and swimming with them.

What To Expect

A truly wholesome, immersive experience with Thailand's famous gentle giants is only possible on an ethical elephant experience with great consideration for the welfare of the animal. This is why a half day trip to the famous Elephant Jungle Sanctuary in Phuket has become so popular: visitors will be able to interact and join the elephants in their natural habitat and learn about the life of these rescued giants. After a briefing on the work and background of the sanctuary as well as some snacks, visitors will be able to don the traditional clothing of the Karen tribe. They will help the sanctuary's keepers to prepare natural dietary supplements for the elephants in their care. Then they will be properly introduced to the sanctuary's rescue elephants, and even feed them the prepared supplements. While playing and interacting with the elephants, taking photos and making sure they are well fed, or even just observing them, visitors will be able to learn about the elephants' past. They'll be taught about elephant behavior patterns and characteristics, and bond better with them when they learn how a truly ethical experience with elephants is achieved. Visitors will also get the chance to have some good clean fun by taking a big mud spa with the elephants, and help them wash off afterwards in the elephant shower room! Then you'll get your own shower and enjoy a delicious Thai meal as a reward for all the hard work, with vegetarian options available. You'll be dropped off back to your hotel a true sense of accomplishment, knowing that you've aided the sanctuary and its elephants, and learnt how to best help these beautiful creatures in the future.

  • Mariia 6 Aug 2018
    The most exciting experience in Phuket ! Must visit especially with kids ! The staff is super friendly and assisting in your communication with elephants. Elephants are polite and happy ! Highly recommended
  • HARSHAVARDHAN 5 Aug 2018
    It was a great experience and we got really up close and personal with the elephants! Not an activity for the obsessively clean, but my daughter and I enjoyed muffing and bathing with the elephants! The food served was quite sumptuous. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Overall we had a wonderful time!
  • Wing Kee 4 Aug 2018
    Very nice staff and good activities
  • Kin pong 28 Jul 2018
    It is very nice opportunity for the kids and adult to learn more about the Elephant.
  • kingfung 28 Jul 2018
    This is the most valuable activity in this trip. My 5yrs old son love it so much. Its impressive when you closely interact with the elephants. Really good experience. Staffs are very nice also.
  • Jared 26 Jul 2018
    My husband and I took our 3 year old on this experience and we could not have had more fun!! This specific site is fairly new so the location and facilities are quite clean, and I also witnessed several workers to ensure the quilts of the area was well kept for both people and elephants!! You could really tell that the staff loved their elephants and you get to learn the life of each elephant!! Definitely a must-do for Thailand!!
  • Shantel 23 Jul 2018
    I had the most amazing time I would highly recommend it . The elephants seemed to be very well taken care of. There was no riding of them, only feeding them and giving them a mud bath. I would do it again if I, ever in Thailand again.
  • Raymond 17 Jul 2018
    Elephants were great. We did see the staff pull the elephants along by their ears though. Other reviews have also questioned whether the sanctuary is really ethical, or whether that’s just part of the name. The transfer was horrendous. 0 stars and very dangerous. They picked us up in a Ute, but asked us get in the back where the cargo normally goes. No seatbelts, not even an enclosed space. We were sitting in the crumple zone of the car through windy roads at high speeds. When I suggested to the driver that they get a minibus, he just laughed. DO NOT book this with a transfer, especially if you have kids.
