PHUKET’S FIRST & MOST ETHICAL ELEPHANT SANCTUARY

We are pioneering ethical elephant tourism on the island and rescue sick, injured and old elephants who spent their entire lives working in the logging and tourism industries. Endorsed by National Geographic and World Animal Protection, Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is a final home where rescued elephants have the freedom to roam, bathe, forage and socialize freely

EXPLORE THAILAND’S LONGEST CANOPY WALKWAY

Our new, 600-metre-long and 6-meter-tall canopy walkway is the only one of its kind in Phuket and takes ethical elephant tourism to new heights – literally! To provide the elephants with maximum freedom to naturally roam, forage, bathe and socialize in the jungle below, visitors can now observe them both from above as well as from a safe and respectful distance whilst hiking through our 30-acre sanctuary as part of our guided tours..


We also offer a dedicated PES Canopy Walkway Program. Watch a trailer below and click here for more info.


Welcome to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary

Phuket's First & Most Ethical Sanctuary

Where Elephants Roam & Bathe Freely

Bordering the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary offers a true final home for overtired elephants who have suffered from working long hours in the logging and tourism industry. As the first ethical elephant tourism experience in Phuket, we rescue sick, injured and old elephants, welcoming them back into their indigenous habit.

At Phuket Elephant Sanctuary elephants can just be elephants. Feed them pineapples and bananas, and observe these gentle giants as they enjoy their newfound freedom, socialize with each other and bathe freely in our expansive fresh water lagoons.

The Freedom and Happiness for the elephants are our top priorities. We offer full-time veterinary care, 30 acres of lush, tropical land for the elephants to roam, forage, bathe and socialize, and a dedicated team to prepare supplementary food and look after the wellbeing of the herd.

Your visit supports our work and guarantees to leave you inspired, transformed and in awe of these majestic animals.
