Full description

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, skin damages, 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.

    Very great experience. However, all the people there are sometimes a bit - I don't want to say intrusive - but almost compel you to have 1003002847283 pictures taken. All in all, our stay there was far too short for us. What is advertised with 4 hours (with transport of course) ended up with about 2.5 hours. It's a shame for the money. Still had a very great experience with a baby elephant. Definitely to be recommended.

    This is a small and intimate sanctuary with 7 friendly elephants. We had the chance to spend alot of time with Adele who is super gentle and funny. Also got the chance to play with a baby elephant called Tang Mo. Were lucky and got the whole place to ourselves in the morning. Highly recommend!

    As others have felt before me, I can only recommend it to a limited extent. The entire activity lasted only 3 1/2 hours for me instead of the specified 4. In fact, the shortened time was probably due to the proximity of the hotel to the camp, namely I discovered a flyer on site in which the booked activity is mentioned and there it is scheduled for 2 hours. The wellness program for the elephant was definitely an unforgettable experience, but the people on site were all a little "over it". Perhaps it was because there was nobody but me and I therefore got everyone's full attention.
