Additionally, we’ll learn the unique story of each elephant, capture memorable photographs, and even indulge in a mud spa specially designed for their enjoyment with the elephants.

It’s crucial to understand these animals and the significance of protecting them. As an ethical sanctuary in Phuket, they advocate for the humane treatment of these magnificent creatures worldwide. Proceeds from visits and donations contribute to their well-being, including rescue efforts, feeding, veterinary care, and the provision of land and infrastructure for their habitat.

Following this enlightening experience, we’ll freshen up and change clothes on-site before relishing a lunch of traditional Thai cuisine and seasonal fruits.
