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! 🐘❤️

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.

I wanted to write this as soon as possible so don't have a picture I can attach yet! Thank you so much for an awesome visit today. The food was delicious and your guides were fantastic. I absolutely loved the special time I spent at your park. We were such a small group but you treated us respectfully and looked after us so well, and the love you have for the three beautiful elephants in your care was very evident. I will certainly be recommending the Phuket Elephant Park to all I know and I will most definitely be back again! Bless you all. Thank you for caring so much for these majestic elephants and I hope you are able to carry on and rescue many more over time.

The best place to see these wonderful animals up close, see them in their habitat happy to do what they want, free and natural. We had the opportunity to feed them and learn more about how the live and the real story about elephants used for tourism. Pukhet elephant park is rescuing abused elephants used for "tourist" purposes. Elephant walking, elephants painting, elephants clowns among others are some of the activities that are forced to do every day. Let´s promote healthy tourism for elephants and ourselves and that we really do not be an accomplice to animal husbandry and abuse. Best luck rescuing more of these amazings animals :)

Fantastic place to visit. We learnt a lot about the elephants and we got to feed them as well. It was amazing to see that they could go wherever they wanted to and no chains or ropes on them. Very friendly staff and the buffet after was so good. its a must do if you are in Phuket. The elephants are actually happy here.

What a wonderful experience this was. The work they are doing at the Phuket Elephant park is magnificent and extremely admirable. There is an extremely high cost to maintain the park and care for these beautiful elephants and I recommend as many people who care about animal welfare to support this wonderful organisation. The staff are so genuine and really want to give these elephants a peaceful and happy environment to live out the remainder of there lives after enduring so much hardship.

Loved learning about how the park is helping protect these elephants from horrible work including logging, trekking, and circuses/shows. It was great being able to interact with these animals while they we're happy doing their own thing. I would definitely come back here as it is a true sanctuary.
