EXLORE & VENTURE
Observing Elephants in Phuket's Natural Habitat
Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket
Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket accepts a limited number of visitors at regular hours, twice per day, to ensure elephants do not become overwhelmed and the staff is able to supervise visitor-elephant interactions.
It allows visitors to feed, walk and hang out with elephants as they play, bathe and massage themselves by rubbing against trees. Elephants have time for themselves before, after, and between visitor groups. The half-day experience includes a vegetarian lunch and lots of interaction with elephants as they forage for food and splash about in the sanctuary's natural lagoon.
Phuket Elephant Sanctuary
Phuket Elephant Sanctuary claims to have pioneered ethical elephant tourism on the island and is billed as the island's premier retirement home for sick, old, injured or tired elephants who were previously abused or worked for entertainment. Visitors are invited to feed, walk with, and observe rescued elephants as they roam throughout the sanctuary as they would in the wild.
The Phuket Elephant Sanctuary predicts the experience can 'transform your world' after visiting the tranquillity of sanctuary life amidst a beautiful forest bordering the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park.
