    Pattaya Elephant Sanctuary
    Stop: 7 hours - Admission included
    On the morning of your visit, you will be picked up from your accommodation in Bangkok and will drive for approximately 20 minutes through scenic agricultural areas before arriving at the sanctuary in Pattaya. There, you will be met by your English-speaking guide and learn a little about the elephants, before changing into traditional Karen clothing. You will walk with your guide through the sanctuary, where you will find free-roaming elephants and hear their individual stories. Most of the elephants are rescued show or riding elephants, but they are now safe and well cared for at this no-riding sanctuary. Finally, you will be able to enjoy some freshly cooked Pad Thai, delicious snacks and seasonal fresh fruit. Then enjoy the impressive rural scenery as you drive back to the hotel.

We started with our amazing driver, Mr. T, picking us up, who happened to be extremely professional and kept us laughing the entire ride there. Once we arrived we were greeted by a lovely staff who kept us educated on Asian elephants that most of the public would never have realized. We then were emersed into various activities with the elephants including feeding and swimming with them plus a ton more! This was by far the best experience I could have asked for in Thailand. Please do yourself a favor and experience the beauty of the animals.

Everything about this trip was perfect. From the moment when Mr. T picked us up, the actual excursion, and our ride back home. I definitely recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see/experience elephants in proper and healthy care!

This was truly the highlight of our trip to Thailand. The sanctuary was fantastic. Our trip started with Mr. T punctually picking us up for our 2.5 hour car ride to the sanctuary. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Palow, our guide. She introduced us to the the 3 elephants that live in the sanctuary. I suggest to have bathing suit under your garments if you are planning on getting in the water with the animals. We were able to feed them, bathe them and swim with them. Delicious lunch was provided. We also made canine friends that help care for the elephants as well. Definitely worth the drive. You will not regret it.

This was such a fun trip! Mr.T took great care of us by making sure we had time for breakfast before getting us to the sanctuary. He even let us use his WiFi hotspots to communicate with family/friends.

The sanctuary itself was amazing, with the staff their being very knowledgeable about each elephant and making sure we understood how to keep not only the elephants safe from us, but how we can make sure we kept ourselves safe from the elephants.

Make sure to bring a bathing suit or clothes you don’t mind getting covered in mud if you want to bathe them. I would also suggest bring wipes for your feet as there is a lot of dirt and if your feet are uncovered they will be very dusty.

Have a great time!!

If you are in Bangkok you should make the time to visit this Sanctuary. The interaction with the elephants and seeing how much they are cared for here was the highlight of our trip. Mr. T picked us up from our hotel and texted us the night before via WhatsApp about bringing a towel and bathing suit (you will swim with the elephants, bring a change of clothes). Mr. T was at our hotel promptly at 5:30 and we were back by noon, so you only need a half day for this trip, I suggest you go in the morning. We had a great conversation on the way there and cracked some jokes. Just book this trip you won’t regret it !!!

My brother and I visited the Elephant Sanctuary and it was an excellent experience. Our driver Mr T was about 15 minutes early and greeted us in the lobby. He explained how long the drive was going to be and and that we would make a stop for a quick break about an hour I to the drive. We arrived early and got to have the elephants to ourselves before the other groups arrived. It was a time for the elephants to get familiar with us. The elephant sanctuary staff was awesome and explained everything about the elephants and what we would be experiencing. We got to feed and bathe the elephant which was an exciting experience. The elephants were well taken care of and I look forward to experiencing this again when I return to Thailand

Mr. T was outstanding! He sent us messages on Whats App the night before letting us know we should bring swimsuits and towels for the activity. He arrived earlier than our scheduled pick up time and provided us excellent service from the moment we met in the hotel lobby. He was patient, kind, and very funny to spend time with. His car was equipped with many chargers for our phones, AC, and he even let us play our music on the ride to the Sanctuary. The sanctuary is amazing, the elephants are such beautiful animals and the entire experience was simply a wonderful time! Kawb Kun Ka!
