Full description

Explore the Elephant Wildlife Sanctuary in Phuket and feed the elephants with bananas, corn, and more. Learn more about the elephants from your guide, and uncover the benefits of spa treatment on the animals before savoring a delicious lunch box. 

Begin with a pickup from your hotel or accommodation in Phuket and a one-hour transfer to the elephant sanctuary. Be warmly welcomed upon arrival with an Elephant Behavior and Save & Care program to prepare for your encounter.

Feed the elephants baskets of bananas, sugarcane, cucumber, and corn. While they enjoy their food, learn from the guides about the background of each elephant.

Next, prepare the elephants with a spa treatment and shower. Discover the healing benefits of special spa mud that help to heal elephant wounds from many kinds of scratches, and skin damage, and provides heat balance benefits for the body and blood flow.

Enjoy lunch with a Pad Thai box set and seasonal fruits before departing back to your hotel in Phuket. Leave inspired and informed, having supported the elephants and future care at the Elephants Wildlife Sanctuary.

    This was an amazing experience, truly something that can’t be missed. To see these beautiful creatures up close and have the chance to interact with them in such an intimate way was absolutely priceless. It is heartwarming to know that the elephants are being well taken care of by the sanctuary staff who really love and respect them. The elephants themselves seem very happy and healthy. It was an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life.

    Beautiful experience with these wonderful animals! The people who work there obviously care about and bond with the animals. There’s a range of elephants from 1 year to 64 years old. You get to feed, pat and cuddle the elephants then after a lovely pad Thai and rice lunch you mix up a mud bath to rub all over the elephants before jumping in the dam to wash them off again! Expect to get muddy and have a really hands on experience

    It was an excellent experience. We really loved supporting a smaller, ethical sanctuary and it was clear the elephants were treated very well. The elephants roamed around freely and played with the staff. We fed them buckets of bananas and made a mud paste and bathed them. A wonderful experience!
