This experience was so much more than had ever imagined. The sanctuary is very well organized for the elephants and the visitors and it was so good to see how well the elephants were looked after and cared for by the keepers. We could see that they genuinely loved them and spent all the time with them. The sanctuary is very simple yet they have thought of everything to accommodate visitors for the time they are there: explaining about the differences between Thai and African elephants; the history of the sanctuary; the reason why the elephants are there and the population of wild elephants remaining; and how to behave when we are feeding and washing them. The buffet meal was fabulous and they provided fresh drinking water and other beverages we’re on sale. The shop was a bonus - to buy a little something to remind us of this special day. It’s good to know that all money spent goes directly to the sanctuary and the elephants. Bravo for such great work!
The description mentions you will go in a cave but doesn’t mention you will be wading in water potentially up to neck height. The trek through the cave it almost 1km also. It was great fun! But something to consider. Where footwear you don’t mind getting wet and don’t take a big bag as the tour guide only has a small wet bag for everyone’s phones etc. Water is provided. The whole thing was just under 6miles (bike plus cave). Both your guides where fab and day was very well organised. Beware of lunch as some options are very spicey! Our tour guide Nim was so good so even took photos for you throughout the day and sent them by WhatsApp later!
It was AMAZING! The host was SO FUNNY. Mad everyone laugh such positive energy you could see they care about their elephants. It was such a memorable and fun experience especially going in the mud and water with them. And the photographer was a star I wish we were able to leave money as a tip we didn't get a chance to do it unfortunately (we couldnt see them). He took such beautiful pictures. I put my hand up to cook and it was so fun. I loved it it was such a great day and amazing place.
Was amazing, I was picked up from my hotel for the morning half day experience and as so as we got to the camp we went straight into the introduction then to feed the elephants. After feeding them we then had a mud bath with the elephants and then washed them off. Included in the experience was also a cooking class and a yummy buffet. Overall the day was great and I highly recommend this experience to anyone in Phuket looking for an adventure.
The most fantastic place to go for a visit , it was wonderful to interact with the elephants in their natural environment including feeding them , getting a min bath with them al also cleaning them in the pool. An experience we will remember forever I could go again tomorrow . They really look after the elephants and that really shows. Don’t miss out on this trip it is definitely something very special .
