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.

Phuket Elephant Tour

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.

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.

PEP staff are incredibly knowledgable, thoughtful, and aim to provide you with the best possible experience of ethically viewing rescued elephants. Not to be missed!

  • 5 star review  An amazing experience, with knowledgable, friendly staff who talked extensively about the plight of elephants in Thailand and their desire to rescue more from tourism trekking. We got to see the elephants up close, happy in their natural habitat. All finished by the most fabulous Thai lunch ��� can not recommend enough, I hope more people support!

  • 5 star review  Fantastic experience, a must to do if visiting Phuket. Feeding the elephants and walking through the bush with them is a memory our family will treasure forever. To see the elephants in their natural environment and looking so content was wonderful. The guides are very friendly & informative. The traditional Thai breakfast and lunch was really yummy and was great to eat whilst watching the elephants wander around freely.
