Learn about these incredible creatures and join them in the water.  Be picked up from your accommodation and drive to Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary. There, you will be met by your English-speaking guide and learn about the history of elephants in Thailand, their behavior, what they eat, and their individual stories. Receive bananas to feed to feed free-roaming elephants and learn about their individual stories. Touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while your guide tells you about their lifestyle, and behaviors.  Listen as your guide tells you about how these elephants are rescued from lives of logging or carrying people.

Krabi: Elephant Bathing and Huay Tho Waterfall Day Trip

2. Krabi: Elephant Bathing and Huay Tho Waterfall Day Trip

Get up close and personal with rescued elephants at Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary on a day trip from Krabi. Bathe, feed, and care for the elephants. Enjoy a delicious Thai lunch and cool down in the waters of Huay To Waterfall. You can also get your adrenaline pumping with an optional jungle ATV ride.

Next, get the chance to cook for the elephants and feed them their lunch and vitamins. Prepare elephant-friendly nutrition balls before sitting down to your own delicious lunch. Afterward, you may wish to embark on an optional ATV ride through the jungle, with views of Krabi's mountains, rubber plantations, and palm plantations along the way. Finally, head to Khao Phanom Bencha National Park to admire the vibrant flora and fauna of the tropical forest. Enjoy a dip in Huay To Waterfall before returning to your hotel in the afternoon.

A explicação sobre o santuário e o trabalho deles é muito boa. eles dispõem de calçados para a lama, o que é ótimo, e também chuveiros.
