Experience

Highlights
  • See rescued animals in a responsible way
  • Learn about the elephant’s individual stories and about their personalities
  • Greet and feed the rescued elephants
  • Enjoy the convenience of private return transfers from your hotel in Bangkok
Full description
Meet your driver at your hotel lobby in Bangkok at 6.30 AM. The transfer to the rescue center will take about 3 hours. Once you arrive, meet and greet with your guide for the day. Your guide will give you an informed guided tour around all areas of the center. You’ll see some of the rescued animals, hear their stories and learn why they are living at the center.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided for you. Enjoy a traditional Thai buffet looking over our large multi species enclosure with elephants, gibbons, and other animals. We will serve both vegan, vegetarian, and meat options at lunch.

After lunch, meet and feed one of the elephants. See how the volunteers at the elephant refuge go about their daily tasks. Learn about the elephant’s individual stories and about their personalities. Learn about the conservation issues that elephants face, and how they are exploited by tourist attractions, forced to carry lots of people and perform tricks – you will see none of this at the elephant refuge, where the elephant’s natural behaviour is of paramount importance.

Drive around the whole site and get to see the bears and monkeys enjoying their meal before the tour ends at approximately 3.30 PM. Meet your driver once again at the entrance and transfer back to Bangkok. Estimated return time at your hotel is 6.30 PM.
