Phuket Elephant Park

 

Home for Rescued Elephants

Because access to the Park is limited to only a handful of people, visitors enjoy something not offered with other projects. You will experience exclusive close encounters with elephants allowed to act naturally in their beautiful stress-free home. We don't force elephants to do anything they don't want to do.

Elephant Sanctuary

Phuket Elephant Park is set against the backdrop of a national park. This is a real elephant sanctuary. No large groups of people, elephants allowed to relax and behave normally.

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.

We Love Our Elephants

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.

  • positive review  The Phuket Elephant Park experience is something all visitors to the island should make it their priority to see. This is a family friendly day where all the hard work is done for you. You will be picked up in a timely and professional manner from your hotel. After a short drive you will arrive at the park and be given refreshments and an excellent talk,followed by an important video, outlining the reasons that elephant riding is not a good idea. The gentle giants are then introduced individually, and you get to hand feed them. Walking around near them gives a wonderful insight into their different temperaments and natures. The staff is very helpful and ensures that you have plenty of photo opportunities. Lunch is an amazing vegetarian buffet. Your driver takes you back to your door after lunch. If you want to make a difference in the lives of these previously abused elephants, just refuse to support elephant riding or elephant shows. Encourage others to treat them with respect. Hope to return one day and find many newly rescued animals.

  • positive review  The best place to see these wonderful animals up close, see them in their habitat happy to do what they want, free and natural. We had the opportunity to feed them and learn more about how the live and the real story about elephants used for tourism. Pukhet elephant park is rescuing abused elephants used for "tourist" purposes. Elephant walking, elephants painting, elephants clowns among others are some of the activities that are forced to do every day. Let´s promote healthy tourism for elephants and ourselves and that we really do not be an accomplice to animal husbandry and abuse. Best luck rescuing more of these amazings animals 🙂

  • 5 star review  By far the best tour we went on in Phuket! It’s easy to see how much love they have for their elephants and the species as a whole. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable about the other tours and the animal cruelty most of the other tours seem to promote. The lunch was delicious, the staff amazing, the tour very educational. All in all, an absolutely wonderful experience!

  • positive review  Everything is done with the Elephant's best interests in mind. No gimmicky bathing and riding which injures and causes trauma to them - only gentle leading with food as the incentive no sticks or prods of any sort. The handlers and the guides in the park really love these animals and have saved them from a lifetime of torture and slavery - finally they are free as they can be to enjoy life and it shows. I loved every minute and would go back to Phuket just to spend another day there - a really magical experience.

  • positive review  I wanted to see Elephants in Thailand but knew about how badly elephants where treated for the tourism industry :(. After alot of research we found Phuket Elephant Park that was a true elephant sanctuary. (alot of ones pretend to be a sanctuary but still offer rides and bathing so be careful where you choose its easy to make a mistake and think your doing the right thing) Please if you want to see Elephants while in Thailand come here! 😀 We had the most amazing day, its was so chilled and got to see the elephants just enjoy being elephants (and they still came up really close if they feel like it and there was plenty of opportunity for pictures at the elephants own pace. No need to stress the elephants out for photos 🙂 ) Its clear from talking to the people here how much they love the elephants and their knowledge of the elephants is great, we learned so much. Was so shocked we where the only 4 there visiting, they need more support and awareness so that they can rescue more elephants from the tourism industry 🐘❤️🐘 If you do one thing in Thialand be sure to come here 🙂
