Phuket Elephant Sanctuary

One of Thailand’s leading ethical elephant sanctuaries, the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary provides a safe and stress-free home for retired and rescued elephants.

There are many elephant sanctuaries claiming to be the best and most ethical in Phuket, but the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is the real deal and the only one we would recommend. Here there is no riding, no performances, and no stressful forced contact between elephant and human. Guests can get up close to help to feed the elephants, and then accompany them at a safe distance into the jungle and watch from observation decks as the elephants roam freely, bathe, play, socialise with one another, and generally just be elephants!
