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.

    beautiful animals. amazing impressions. I recommend it very hotly. Everyone should get to know these animals from close up
  • Vannara 18 May 2018
    Convenient pick-up and drop off to accomodation and a great experience at the sanctuary. Get to feed and bath with the elephants.
  • Qian Wen 18 May 2018
    it was such a lovely experience and the elephants were so cute. would definitely rcome again
  • Jeffrey 18 May 2018
    Driver was punctual but the ride is in a pickup truck with a covered top. It was a fun ride for a short while but one hour ride (one way) from Kata Beach to the elephant sanctuary was tiring sitting in the bench seat with hot air and exhaust surrounding you. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience for adults and kids. My oldest is 12, youngest is 6. 12 year old enjoyed doing the experience. 6 year old just enjoyed watching most of the time. Make sure to bring bug repellent. We also each got a beautiful souvenir poncho to bring home, what great memories!!
  • Vanessa 17 May 2018
    wonderful tour! Smooth booking through Klook. Picked us up at our hotel in a neat truck. Was such an awesome experience getting to see the elephants up close and personal! Wonderful staff too at the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary. Had a blast, would recommend to elephant lovers.
