This place is a little Elephant Village where you can enjoy your day with the elephants. Here you can feed the elephants, play with them, click countless photos (The sanctuary also has an in-house photographer who captures every moment of your day all the snaps are later posted on the sanctuary's Facebook page from where they can be downloaded for free), and enjoy bathing with them. The elephants at the sanctuary looked healthy & happy and were very well taken care of. We had a fantastic time & an incredible experience while feeding, bathing, and playing with the giants. I would consider this a must do for all ages while visiting Phuket. The Guide & Mahout's were very friendly, knowledgeable, and were very passionate for what they do. They educated us with many unknown facts about Asian/African Elephants. Cherry on the cake- Free Elephant Sanctuary Souvenir & Lunch Buffet! It was an absolutely phenomenal experience from start to finish. Let's stop the abuse of elephants & help sanctuary's like this ? *During your visit, do not forget to bring your sunscreen lotion, hat/cap, swimming costume (this would be used while bathing with the elephants), a towel (Rental Option @ 50 Tbh) and a pair of clothes to change after the bath. Not to mention- the sanctuary does not offer any sort of elephant ride. Pros: Free Pick & Drop Services Free Water & Meal Inclusions Souvenir Shop Clean Restrooms & Showers Facility In-house photographer to capture every moment (Later they share a Download Link on Sanctuary's Facebook Page) Energetic/Friendly/passionate Guide & Mahouts Most important- You can find the elephants in their natural habitat Keep Calm & Love Elephants!
