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.

  • 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.

  • 5 star review  Phuket Elephant Park - T H A I L A N D � I can't believe the incredible experience we had today at the Phuket Elephant Park. We were lucky enough to spend most of the day here with these amazing elephants and learning about their past lives in riding camps and working in excavation where they were treated horribly by humans and trained to do things they wouldn't usually do in the wild. We also had the privilege of meeting the people behind this organisation and learn about how they became so passionate in creating change and educating people. We also had the place basically to ourselves and had a beautiful lunch put on for us by the park which was cooked by one of the elephants 24/7 carers (mahout) wives. What a highlight, I really hope that one day if your in Thailand you go here. It was so much more fulfilling then the "fantasea show" they advertise here or any of the riding or bathing parks.
