Elephants Deserve It
People Enjoy It
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 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!

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

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 �

Phuket Park is so wonderful! It is amazing work they are doing for the elephants. Highly recommend if you are visiting Phuket. Wonderful volunteers and staff. The lunch was delicious. A experience I will never forget!
- 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!!

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

Had an amazing time visiting and meeting the rescued elephants. We got to feed them then observe them eating fresh banana plants. After we were fed a banquet of beautiful Thai food. We loved that this was an actual sanctuary for the elephants, no chains,...More
We had a wonderful morning watching and learning about the elephants. There are only 3 rescued elephants here so you have plenty of time with each of them. The day starts with a short presentation on the background of the park and a safety video....More

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....More
What first strikes you is the size of the place. The 2 rescued elephants have acres and acres in which to roam...and they do! To follow them was a real privilege. The elephants are in charge here. The staff are so passionate and you hope...More
