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  Można być blisko słoni, a jednocześnie mieć świadomość, że bierze się udział w zmianie przemysłu turystycznego, który od lat bezlitośnie eksploatuje te piękne i mądre zwierzęta. Nie ma kąpieli, nie ma chodzenia za słoniami ale samo patrzenie z dość bliska daje wielką frajdę.

  • positive review  If you are looking to visit an ethical elephant park and truly feel like you are supporting a fantastic effort to look after elephants that have suffered horrendously then this is your place! Couldn’t recommend it more - I am so pleased to have visited and been given an insight into their work.

  • 5 star review  If it is truly a place where elephants can be elephants, then I give it 5 stars. Elephants deal with such inhumanity in Thailand, that a place like this or BLES or Nature Park is worth everything. I hope they accept male elephants too because males go through so much hell and need sanctuary as much as do females.

  • 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.

  • 5 star review  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!!

  • positive review  This sanctuary needs to be supported by tourists instead of the elephant trekking where the cruelty and exploitation is rampant. We need to financial support this place.
