A morning with the elephants is an eye-opening and inspiring experience. Following a scenic drive along a local village you will arrive at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, a picturesque jungle dotted with ponds, wide open fields and hillsides for the elephants to roam around.
Your visit starts at our Tree Top Lounge, where we will show you an educational video documentary to prepare you for your encounter with the elephants, and to help you understand why they need to be protected.
Next up, you will feed the elephants. While they enjoy their baskets of fruits, you have a chance to learn from our guides about the background of each elephant.
We then venture into the sanctuary and explore Thailand’s longest canopy walkway as well as several natural trails to locate the elephants, and to observe them forage and bathe freely while our tour guides give you a detailed background of each elephant. By keeping a safe and respectful distance, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our ponds and rivers to socializing with each other.
At the end of the program, a delicious vegetarian Thai meal awaits.
