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.

  • 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.

  • positive review  Fantastic morning here. Learned a lot surrounding the history behind the elephant, how it’s Thailand famous and respected animal. And how elephants are being used and abused for trekking, circus activities etc. The people here really show appreciation for the animal and care for them. Highly recommend!

  • 5 star review  We had such an amazing day yesterday at this sanctuary for rescued elephants. The team and volunteers were incredible people with massive hearts who care and look after these elephants after the horrible treatment they receive from working in jungles logging, entertaining tourists and Trekking Parks. It’s lovely to know they now have a forever home and relaxing future ahead of them. We left this experience filled with lots of knowledge about the mistreatment of these beautiful animals and how they have been rehabilitated since coming to this sanctuary. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to watch and feed the elephants in such a lovely environment after such a cruel life. We hope to visit again in the future!

  • 5 star review  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
