1. Phuket: Ethical Elephant Sanctuary Interactive Tour
Discover the magic of Elephants on this guided visit to the Phuket Elephant Wildlife Sanctuary. Experience the elephant's daily route by feeding and bathing them. Enjoy the convenience of pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Phuket. Start your day with pickup from your accommodation in a luxury, air-conditioned van. Go on a scenic drive through beautiful scenery to the Elephant Sanctuary. Meet your English-speaking guide and learn a little about the elephants. Gather up some bananas and cane sugar and walk with your guide through the park and discover the free-roaming elephants in a safe, sustainable and ethical environment. Your guide will tell you a bit about each elephant's individual stories. Touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors. After you've met all the elephants, accompany them to a nearby mud spa. Get muddy with the elephants as you apply a healthy cosmetic mud treatment to their skin. Next, stroll with the elephants to a nearby river and join them in the water for a refreshing bath. Take a swim and help bathe and brush the elephants while they wade through and play in the water. Once the elephants are clean, you can take some final photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways with your new friend and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy some snacks and seasonal fresh fruits before heading back to your hotel.
