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 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.

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.

We loved seeing the elephants free in their natural habitat. It was good to be educated about elephant conservation by passionate workers. It was a bonus that the lunch was amazing too!

This was an amazing day that I would highly recommend. It's worth paying a little extra for this tour. It was awesome to be able to feed the elephants and watch them wonder freely without fear from the humans who once controlled their lives. The managers and staff are passionate about the elephants health and happiness. We finished our day with a beautiful vegetarian meal. Thank you so much, it was a very memorable day
- Rachel Sanders
Amazing place, would recommend to everyone It is a very new sanctuary, and it would be good to spread the word! Elephant Park also work alongside nature Park in chaing Mai and elephant sanctuary in phuket, all following the same morals of rescuing elephants and wanting a better life for them. If you want to ride an elephant and see tricks this is NOT for you...however, if you would like to observe previously mistreated animals, finally happy and in a natural environment living their own life, then this is the place. Was a huge experience for us and so glad we did it. The staff are also all so friendly, knowledgeable and kind and help to make this place. Hope to see you next year when we return to Thailand!!

Phuket elephant park is an amazing sanctuary to visit. Only opened this year and they have done so much to facilitate their elephants. They were allowed to roam free, at no point were the elephants told what to do. We had the pleasure to watch the elephants bath and enjoy a wallow in the water. The team here are passionate and want so much to change the lives of elephants here in Phuket and Thailand. If you truly care about elephants, please don't ride them or watch a show! Come and visit this beautiful sanctuary and support the great work they are doing. We had an amazing experience here... can't wait to come back to see how they have grown, and how many more elephants they have saved from the awful riding camps! If tourists don't demand rides and visit ethical places like PEP, only then will we see better change for elephants! Well done to all the team here! Wonderful work and happy elephants �

I can't wait to visit you, I witnessed the success of Phuket elephant Sanctuary, I have no doubt that Phuket Elephant Park will also know a great reputation contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of the elephants of Thailand and will carry messages of love and respect for our gentle giants ... Thank you for choosing the voice of compassion

There is one review on here that states a person rode an elephant and witnessed them in chains. This is not that place at all. It is literally a retirement community for sick or injured elephants that the Owners can rescue from the kind of...More

When visiting new places I always try and have an ‘animal themed’ day out. I was concerned when visiting Thailand as I had heard horror stories about the treatment of animals. I was happy to hear about Phuket Elephant Sanctuary and I was not disappointed...More

It’s an unfortunate reality that Thailand is known for animal reserves that claim to exist for the welfare of amazing creatures, like Tigers and Elephants. But often they are nothing more than tourist attractions where the resident animals are treated unkindly, all in the effort...More
