Elephants Sanctuary Phuket Half Day Morning. (Phuket Elephant Sanctuary) *Located in Paklok, Thalang It is becoming quite common for tourists to no longer want to ride elephants and instead they prefer to choose the elephant care programs and visit the elephant sanctuaries.
Although there are still a lot of operators offering the trekking, it is becoming less popular, and instead people are more interested in seeing the elephants relaxing, enjoying themselves, helping to feed them, and just take some pictures with them.
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 Reception and Observation Platform, where we will show you a presentation and educational video to prepare you for your experience with the elephants, it will help you understand why they need to be protected.
Next up, you will feed the elephants. While they enjoy their baskets of bananas, pineapples and cucumbers, we will truly is one of a kind.
Once we have fed the elephants, we walk with them down into the jungle. By keeping a safe distance and watching them from our Observation area, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our pond to socializing with each other.
The most important thing to us, is the well being of the elephants. As such, we do not offer rides, shows, bathing, trunk hugging, elephant kisses, sitting on or lying on the elephants, loud noisy groups, or people crowding around the elephants.
Not only will your visit leave you inspired and informed, it also goes a long way to support our elephants and future rescues for the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, and to contribute to a more ethical elephant approach, elephant well being and conservation in Thailand.
