Full description
You’ll start your adventure with an early pickup before heading to the elephant sanctuary. ElephantsWorld is a conservation organization dedicated to helping these intelligent and proud creatures. Once there, you’ll listen to an introduction and safety briefing before preparing food for the elephants. Get down and dirty and give the elephants a mud bath before heading to the river to rinse them off. There will be some time to shower before you tuck in to a delicious buffet lunch. After helping yourself to delicious Thai dishes, feed the elephants the food you prepared earlier. At Erawan National Park, you’ll trek through the lush forests and caves before arriving at Erawan Waterfall. This famous seven-tiered beauty with its emerald pools is a great place to take a dip or simply relax and enjoy the scenery.

This trip was amazing, driver we had for the day was very friendly and accommodating for us even with a slight language barrier he was very helpful, the day it’s self was like no other elephants were well looked after and free to roam staff friendly as can be and the lunch was very nice. Highly recommend!

This tour was private and Ayti was our driver for the day and he was very friendly and was a safe driver. He took the time to make coffee and bathroom stops. The elephant sanctuary is a must do in Thailand. It was a life changing experience to interact with elephants and have the opportunity to care for them. The lunch served at the sanctuary was also a bonus!

We had an incredible trip. Easily the highlight of our entire experience in Thailand! Our driver Krit had a clean car and was a safe driver who also was extremely warm and held fantastic attention to detail. As two young female travelers, safety and comfort were key and Krit absolutely delivered. The elephant sanctuary was informative, so hands on (feeding elephants treats, prepping elephant food, giving the elephants a cooling mud spa, and bathing them in the river after), and a dream come true! It was also very humane. They had a 79 year old elephant even! And the waterfall was majestic and gorgeous at every level! Would absolutely book this exact experience again when we come back!
