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.

  • 5 star review  Phuket Elephant Park is a top rated sanctuary and a must visit for any trip to Thailand. My husband and I had the best time visiting Srinuan and Deelert! PEP staff are incredibly knowledgable, thoughtful, and aim to provide you with the best possible experience of ethically viewing rescued elephants. Not to be missed!

  • 5 star review  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 �

  • 5 star review  What a wonderful place to spend time with elephants that are now living their lives without being forced to entertain humans and free from shackles. Is it too much to hope that all elephants can live their lives just like this one day? Slowly, slowly the tide is changing. If you really care about elephants, then please visit and support this beautiful park. 🐘❤️🐘❤️
