Full description
Learn all about elephants, on this unique day spent at the Elephant Care by Anda Adventure.  Your day begins at 11 AM in the morning at your hotel in Phuket or Phang Nga, where you will be met by your English speaking guide to depart for the elephant sanctuary. Upon arrival at the Elephant Care Park, you will be given a traditional Mahout uniform to wear, before receiving an introductory training session on the basics of the park and elephant care.

Once you've completed your training, you will get to meet the elephants. Learn all about this magnificent animal, their behaviors and history. Help the keepers prepare special food for the elephants and then feed them. Spend some one-on-one time with the gentle giants, before sitting down to enjoy your own lunch.

Enjoy a traditional Thai food lunch, accompanied by fresh fruit, tea and coffee. After resting up, take the elephants for a mud spa, which cools them down and protects them from parasites. End this amazing experience by bathing the elephants in the river and cleaning the mud off of them. Take another tea or coffee break before heading back to your hotel at the end of the day at 3:30 PM.

This is a great activity that’s fun for you and good for the animals. You get to prep food and feed the elephants and then go wash/cool them off in the nearby river. This tour was all on the elephants time so if they didn’t want to do something they weren’t forced to. The lunch provided was also very tasty.

Great day out. Baby elephant was so cute and just wanted to play (and eat!) The guy taking the tour was great and very knowledgeable. Very patient taking many photos and videos of us and others with elephants. The driver taking us looked at his phone a lot while driving which wasnt good. Return driver much better

Absolutely brilliant, the elephants were lovely and clearly cared for very much. They were not made to do anything they didn’t want to. Food and guide very very nice. It’s a must do trip!!
