Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is the first and only ethical elephant sanctuary in Phuket where elephants roam around, bathe and sozialize freely across 30 acres of lush, tropical land bordering the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park in North East Phuket. We buy all rescued elephants to ensure that Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is their final home, and we offer professional veterinary care for old and injured elephants. By visiting us, you are supporting a sustainable, ethical and compassionate approach to elephant tourism where elephants have the freedom to live naturally. National Geographic, Lonely Planet and The Guardian have all endorsed our ethical approach.

Stop At: Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, 100, Moo 2,, Paklok, Thalang, ภูเก็ต 83110, Thailand

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 a presentation and educational video to prepare you for your encounter with the elephants, and to help you understand why they need to be protected.

Next up, the elephants are fed. While they enjoy their baskets of bananas, pineapples and cucumbers, you have a chance to learn from our guides about the background of each elephant.

Once the elephants are fed, we follow them down into the jungle. By keeping a safe distance and watching them from our Observation Salas, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our pond to socializing with each other.

The program ends with a delicious Thai vegetarian meal.

If you love elephants and understand the horrendous torture they endure for riding, shows etc. then there is only one way to see them and that is living happily in a beautiful natural environment. Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is a wonderful opportunity to do just that and to learn about these incredible beings along with some of their individual stories. Here they receive wonderful care by people who love them deeply. Your visit will help continue and grow this beautiful sanctuary. Well worth a visit!

When you visit Phuket in Thailand there is a unique places you must visit and this is one of them but if you willing to get wet and get down in the water with elephants there is another one better for you. This one to feed the elephants and come close. If you like to take a ride, it is also available

Hearing about the elephants and how they came to the sanctuary, being able to walk around and see them as they should be. The elephants look happy and are obviously loved and cared for. Great work and happy that the money from the trip will go towards caring for these lovely animals.

What a great morning and a fantastic place to visit. They are doing such a great job saving old and injured elephants. I was glad to be a part of it.

Absolutely incredible. The mahout and guides clearly have so much love for these animals. They shared educational information and taught us about the importance of ethical elephant tourism and the work that they do to rescue these beautiful creatures. The included food & refreshments were lovely and the walk through the park was nice and easy with gum boots provided and opportunities to see the elephants behaving naturally. Would highly recommended the morning or even full day tour.
