Full description

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, skin damages, 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.

    The experience I had with these magnificent creatures was beyond imagination. Every cent we spend here will be utilised to improve this facility and to increase the number of elephants they can take care of, so this is an excellent opportunity for all animal lovers. The staff at the facility are very friendly and very helpful.

    Seeing the beautiful elephants up close was just incredible. They are looked after with love, care and respect so don’t worry about the elephants well being. They are showered with love, affection and attention by a team who’s in depth knowledge is clear. My guide was Mocky and he knew so much about the elephants!! I highly recommend this experience and you can rest easy knowing your money is going straight back into looking after the elephants.

    Incredible experience with the elephants, we had an unforgettable afternoon that will remain etched in our memories. Allow 2-3 hours to feed the elephants, give them a massage and then clean them in a water point. Plan things that you can get dirty as well as a bathing suit and shoes to go in the water.
