Full description

Explore the Elephant Wildlife Sanctuary in Phuket and feed the elephants with bananas, corn, and more. Learn more about the elephants from your guide, and uncover the benefits of spa treatment on the animals before savoring a delicious lunch box. 

Begin with a pickup from your hotel or accommodation in Phuket and a one-hour transfer to the elephant sanctuary. Be warmly welcomed upon arrival with an Elephant Behavior and Save & Care program to prepare for your encounter.

Feed the elephants baskets of bananas, sugarcane, cucumber, and corn. While they enjoy their food, learn from the guides about the background of each elephant.

Next, prepare the elephants with a spa treatment and shower. Discover the healing benefits of special spa mud that help to heal elephant wounds from many kinds of scratches, and skin damage, and provides heat balance benefits for the body and blood flow.

Enjoy lunch with a Pad Thai box set and seasonal fruits before departing back to your hotel in Phuket. Leave inspired and informed, having supported the elephants and future care at the Elephants Wildlife Sanctuary.

    It was an amazing experience getting to interact with the elephants in their natural habitat. Unfortunately the experience was tainted by the fact that they sent me the wrong pictures . We were two black women on the tour (with your respective partners) and they got us mixed up. It’s 2022 not all black people look the same ! I have called and emailed several times but yet to get our pictures of this amazing day.

    Looking through our photos made us feel quite emotional to see our interactions with these magnificent animals. We had a fantastic time and were happy to see the elephants looked so well cared for. We would definitely come back to visit the elephants when we come back to Phuket and will be telling any of our friends who plan to holiday in Phuket to give the sanctuary a visit.

    The experience was absolutely amazing! Our guide was great although English could’ve been better spoken to ask questions. The elephants looked loved and cared for. My only complaint is that they changed the tour time & told us we’d be back at our hotel by 12. Our tour didn’t end in time and we asked for a ride back as we had other arrangements and they refused until the rest of the group was ready (they were eating lunch) or we could pay for a taxi. We weren’t going to pay 700 baht when we were told we would be back. They said they would drop us off first, but dropped us off LAST. We ended up not getting back until after 1PM and missed our other appointments that we booked weeks in advance. I am very unimpressed by this and the lack of professionalism - being out money should have been on their account. Not ours.
