Elephant Sanctuary Thailand
Published on: 14/08/2017
If you are looking for an experience like no other in Phuket Thailand, then you need to visit Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket! Located deep in the jungle, you can experience life with the elephants like very few visitors will ever have the opportunity to.
Enjoy an experience far from the city, in a small group at the heart of the jungle, and discover the world of our local camp!
Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project. The sanctuary was founded in August 2018 in the area of Chiang Mai after concerns were raised for the local population of elephants and the good experience of the camp in Chiang Mai.
Elephant Jungle Sanctuary specializes in looking after injured and mistreated elephants which have been rescued from all areas of Thailand.
The activities and packages are depending on which part of the year you visit the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary and also the current needs of the center. In any case, there are a variety of different activities to choose from !
Anyway we propose a half-day visit in the morning or in the afternoon.
A Morning with the Elephants
Enjoy a Morning with the Elephants at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary; a natural home and sanctuary for elephants, dogs, and other wildlife in the surrounding forest. Your visit starts with a picturesque drive down a village lane into the grounds of our sanctuary to our Tree Top Reception and Observation Platform.
WHAT TO BRING
You will meet our elephants, learn who they are, and why they need to be protected. Our daily tours incorporate Education, Interaction, and Observation.
EDUCATION - We begin with a presentation and educational video on who we are and why elephants need to be protected.
INTERACTION - We then feed the elephants. This up close encounter is a truly magical experience whilst we introduce our elephants and their stories... and the elephants of course LOVE their basket of treats!
OBSERVATION - Walk with the elephants, stand back and observe as they express natural behaviours. By giving elephants a respectful space, they have the freedom to play, bathe and socialise together, which gives for a peaceful and relaxing day, not only for our elephants but for our visitors too!
Sanctuary visits are all about spending time with the elephants. We do not adhere to a strict schedule, the best way to make the most of your time is to relax, observe, and be in 'elephant time!'
