Description

Visit Elephant Jungle Sanctuary on Koh Samui for an ethical experience with the gentle giants of Thailand! With free pick-up and lunch included, you can enjoy a hassle-free half day at this highly rated sanctuary for rescue elephants. Elephant rides and shows are regrettably still popular in many places, but true elephant sanctuaries are a place to meet retired and rescued elephants away from any exploitation. During your visit, you’ll learn about the elephants from the expert staff at the sanctuary. The significance of elephants in Thai culture, the harsh conditions that many live under today, and the measures taken by the sanctuary to protect and care for these amazing creatures are all presented. You’ll feed and wash the elephants to get to know them better, in an environment that puts their comfort first. Since the tour can get messy and wet (in a very fun way!) we suggest bringing a few things with you. A sun hat, sunscreen, swimwear, a towel, and a change of clothes are all recommended. You can bring your camera too, but if you’re concerned about taking photos with the elephants, worry not — Elephant Jungle Sanctuary offers a photography service at no extra charge. The photographer will take photos of you throughout the day and upload them to the cloud for you to download later.
