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  Had an incredible morning here, the elephants truly are taken care of and work in partnership with save the elephant foundation. This sanctuary doesn’t receive much attention which is sad as the more people who visit the better they are able to make the space for the elephants.

  • 5 star review  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

  • 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! 🐘❤️

  • 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  We have just spent a full day with the elephants and the care and compassion was absolutely amazing! We cannot recommend this place enough as an ethical and safe place to see elephants roam naturally without human interaction💖

  • positive review  A REAL sanctuary where their rescued elephants can enjoy the remainder of their lives doing whatever they want. No chains. No riding. No bathing. No sticks or hooks. Just gentle love and lots of food. 😍 The elephants and their keepers form a loving bond. Their keepers care for them 24 hours a day feeding them bananas and pineapples. We got to hand feed them at the elephant's leisure, then follow them as they roamed around eating plants. The staff are wonderful and very informative. Told us about their story, how the park came to be and each elephant's story. Cooked us up a delicious vegetarian banquet, that even meat eaters would enjoy! I can't wait to go back and see how Deelert, Srinuan, Boonsib and hopefully more rescued elephants are going in their final home.
