The Place

Phuket Elephant Park is set against the backdrop of a national park. This is a real elephant sanctuary. Visitors  sense this is where animals belong.

Facilities make it comfortable for people, but it is home to elephants. Visitors share beautiful surroundings with the rescued herd enjoying their new lives.

Protected jungle gives our residents room to roam, forage, swim, take mudbaths, and socialize.

The People

The best elephant sanctuaries rely on good people. Jai Dee is a Thai phrase loosely translated into "good hearted". The people behind the Park show their love and understanding of how to take care of their animals. They also know how to make sure customers have a great visit.

Phuket Elephant Park managers and staff are committed individuals inspired by Lek Chailert of Save Elephant Foundation and the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. 

Visit us and discover how we nurture these gentle giants.  Learn more About Us

The Elephants

You can tell these rescued elephants are relaxed and happy as they play in their pond and forage in the jungle. They enjoy being hand-fed fresh fruits and vegetables and seeing visitors pleases them.  Our rescued elephants are safe and happy, living without stress.

Spending time with them is a special experience.

  • 5 star review  What a wonderful place to spend time with elephants that are now living their lives without being forced to entertain humans and free from shackles. Is it too much to hope that all elephants can live their lives just like this one day? Slowly, slowly the tide is changing. If you really care about elephants, then please visit and support this beautiful park. 🐘❤️🐘❤️

  • 5 star review  During our recent visit to Phuket we had the privilege of spending a few hours at the beautiful and brand new park. Since they had only been open for two weeks we were fortunate enough to have the entire place, and the elephants, to ourselves! The staff were so incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. The cost of the experience included being shuttled to and from our hotel, being educated on why elephants need to be rescued from trekking, logging and street begging, an incredible vegan buffet feast which was delicious, and three hours of feeding the elephants and watching them finally be free and happy in their new and beautiful habitat. If you have the opportunity and you love animals this is definitely a must! Please support this park and visit so that they can rescue more of these beautiful mammals and give them the freedom and life that they deserve.
