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.

The Herd

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.

  • positive review  This sanctuary needs to be supported by tourists instead of the elephant trekking where the cruelty and exploitation is rampant. We need to financial support this place.

  • positive review  We visited Phuket elephant park during one of the last few days of our holiday for a morning session! We had visited another elephant sanctuary in Thailand previously, but nothing like this! The elephants are truly free to do as they please which is amazing. As the sanctuary is relatively new and not many people know about it yet we turned up for the morning session and it ended up just being me and my partner which was great, private session! We got to feed the elephants and after feeding they went off roaming, they eaten where they want, they could go to the mud bath or water pool if they wanted, they wasn’t forced to do anything. This is a true elephant sanctuary. After observing the elephants we was made the most delicious dinner (and there was enough to feed an elephant!), the best sweet and sour we have ever tasted! Staff was really informative and friendly and answered any questions I had. The elephants could be seen roaming around during lunch also which is just an incredible experience. We had an amazing time here and would definitely come back! Would recommend this to anyone looking for an elephant sanctuary in Phuket as this fulfils every meaning of the word sanctuary. Thank you for a great day! 🐘❤️

  • 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 🙂
