Details

Explore our Phuket Elephant Care sanctuary situated in Naithon in a green forest area with a big natural lake on the island of Phuket. We offer a convenient pickup service directly from your hotel by comfortable minivan pick with safety and a smile.

The friendly staff of Phuket Elephant Care will welcome you with coffee and tea including bread and some snacks, and you will get an introduction in advanced ECO tourism to prepare for your encounter.

Then it is time to prepare seasonal fruits for the elephants. While they enjoy their food, learn from the guides about the background of each elephant.

Next, prepare the elephants with a spa treatment. Discover the healing benefits of special spa mud that help to heal elephant wounds from many kinds of scratches, and skin damage. Finally you can rinse off the mud from the elephant's skin with a rain shower.

The last activity is to paint your own small magnetic elephant which you can take back home together with a keychain as souvenir. Leave inspired and informed, having supported the elephants with maximum freedom to naturally roam, forage, bathe and socialize at the Phuket Elephant Care Sanctuary.
