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.

  • Kristina 21 Jan 2018
    What an amazing experience, the ride was I. The back of a truck but the overall experience was truly exceptional. We fed the elephants gave them a mud bath and a shower to follow. They included free photos and followed by lunch. Would highly recommend this tour!
  • David 20 Jan 2018
    Absolutely fantastic.... probably the best trip We have ever done .... these dedicated people do a brilliant job
  • Zoe 18 Jan 2018
    This was such a fun day. You can tell the workers at the sanctuary really care about and love the elephants. We got picked up at our hotel right on time, and then drove about an hour in a makeshift van (no seatbelts or windows, more like a tuk tuk than a car). We got to feed and bathe with the elephants, and then we were fed delicious Thai food . There are showers for you to wash yourself after bathing with the elephants (definitely necessary, it gets super muddy and the elephants go to the bathroom in the water). All in all, we loved this activity. I would say it's priced higher than it's worth but I know extra $$ from the tickets goes to Elephant care/health. 8.5/10!
  • Darren 5 Jan 2018
    What a fantastic experience! Extremely well organised. Loved feeding time and the mud bath was hilarious. The elephants were so playful. One word of warning. We had to travel sideways in the Tuk Tuk type vehicle they used to pick us. 1 hour and 25 minutes from our hotel in Katathani. We were fine but some did suffer from terrible travel sickness. We ended up paying for a taxi to take us back to the hotel as we didn't want the journey to ruin what was an incredible day. Still rating it 5 stars though!!
  • Cameron 30 Dec 2017
    Great half day out. You get so close to the elephants while feeding and bathing with them. Definitely recommend.
  • Enrin 29 Dec 2017
    Never been so close with the elephants before even though the moment of staying together was rather short. If you would like to protect them, stop riding elephants, let them live in the way they’re.
  • SANDEEP 21 Dec 2017
    Amazing experience. Never been so close to elephants. I will recommend it for my friends.
