It was ok. We started at 10:30. We were allready outside at 11:10. Felt that we didnt get enough time with the elephants. Should be full hour. The guide hurried to fill the baskets ( three time alowed) but only had one basket that I didn fill up because I wanted to feed them having time and not hurring.

From security, through reception, our guide, Pim, the Mahout's and the elephant stars, we were treated with the upmost respect and courtesy. It was my favorite experience in Phuket. Thank you so very much.

Plan the Perfect Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Visit

The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project that was founded in July 2014 as a joint initiative between members of the Karen hill tribes of Northern Thailand and Chiang Mai locals who were concerned about the welfare of elephants in Thailand.

Half-day visit: Explore the sanctuary's history. Wear traditional Karen tribe clothes, help prepare elephant meals, and interact closely with them. Experience a mud spa and shower with the elephants, and finish with a Thai buffet.

Feed & bath package: Want a brief interaction? Learn about the elephants, feed them, and join their bath time, observing their interactions and relationships.

Feed me package: Limited time or budget? Choose the Feed Me option. Get sanctuary access, feed the elephants, and receive a free drink. Experience their gentle demeanor up close.

Choose Your Branch & Conveyance

The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary has 3 branches in Phuket. Kathu for feed & shower, a half-day visit, or a feeding experience; Thalang for an exclusive feeding experience; and Bang Tao for a half-day visit, or feeding experience. You also have the choice to pick between a convenient hotel transfer or the flexibility of driving yourself.
