DOK GAEW – ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY AT PHUKET ELEPHANT SANCTUARY!On the 10th December 2016, we welcomed Dok Gaew, a stunning elephant in her late 60’s. She spent most of her life working hard in the logging industry and then giving rides to tourists in Phuket. She had a deep infected wound on her elbow which required three days of emergency vet treatment before we could transport her to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary.
PHUKET ELEPHANT SANCTUARY IN GRAND-SUD MAGAZINEA huge thank you to French travel magazine, Grand-Sud, for visiting us recently and for including us in a beautiful article as part of their South East Asia travel story.
Bordering the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary offers a new 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.
Your visit guarantees to leave you inspired, transformed and in awe of these majestic animals.
