    What a great day!!! Pickup was early ... arrived on site to get immediate contact with 5 elephants feeding them bananas... we then had a brief chat about the sanctuary and the elephants they are helping all over Thailand. We should all take some responsibility here and if you want to meet the wildlife come to the sanctuary and do not ride elephants. More feeding with the other elephants on site ... 15 in all. Mud bath with the elephants was a lot of fun and lots of giggles ! Food was good for all! We went with by two daughters aged 8 and 10 and they had an 'epic' time!!! Staff were very friendly !

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.

    It is nice and meaningful to rescue the elephant from being a puppet of tourism. It is a wonderful experience to feed the elepants and take a mud shower with them. A remarkable journey!
  • hyedy*** 26 Jul 2017
    Great experience. My daughter and I re loving it. And the staff is so friendly and whole group of people re nice! If u want a great experience with wild life and friendly people, this could be one.
  • Crum* 23 Jul 2017
    What a fantastic, informative, interactive way to spend a few hours with the most beautiful Elephants. The Guides and handlers were wonderful. You can see the love, trust and friendship they all have. Will definitely recommend this experience and go next time we are back in Phuket.
  • Jordan*** 22 Jul 2017
    This was by far the BEST activity I have done EVER in any country. Everything was fantastic from start to finish. The guides were ALL fantastic and through their words and actions you could tell they loved every elephant like it was their own family. The main guide spoke English very well and was able to educate us all regarding why the elephants were there, how they were rescued and from where, lots of information that I can't seem to recapture it all. The elephants were obviously the best part, being able to prepare their food, feed them, mud bathe them, scrub and shower them, it truly was the best experience of my life. We met some fantastic, like minded tourists that were all there for one thing, and that was our love for animals and their wellbeing. When I go back to Thailand in 2019 for my girls trip, this is definitely one activity I'll be taking them all to participate in. I'm so excited already 😁

    the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket Half Day Visit is not as good as the one in chiangmai...... the camp in chiangmai has better coordination, better arrangement and everything are just better.....
  • Cheuk*** 6 Jul 2017
    The experience with elephants is quite worthy and interesting though the place is under construction. Feeding and bathing the elephants are great and enjoyable .
  • Mare* 22 Jun 2017
    Awesome experience. It is far more enjoyable to interact with the elephants in this venue than to ride them. Highly recommended!!
  • Marti* 15 Jun 2017
    Wow. An amazing experience. I didn't want to do an experience where I would ride the elephants or see them in captivity. The sanctuary is the perfect place to meet these amazing animals in a more natural environment. The staff at the sanctuary love the elephants and only want the best for them.

    I can say without a doubt this was the best time I've had here and also the best experience. This tour didn't just meet my expectations but exceeded it. I knew it was going to be good but the employees made it much more then it was. I can see they have a great connection with the elephants and they're well taken care of, if note pampered. They let us have as much interaction with the elephants and let's us be involved in taking care of them. They seem very relaxed and at home, and they look happy. The education introducetion is a must to bring as much awareness to the cause, and hope that everyone will one day know that using elephants for tourism is a cruel way for an elephant to live.
