About Tree Tops Elephant Reserve Phuket
A beautiful elephant sanctuary in Phuket for our 7 retired elephants. We offer a stunning ethical elephant experience close to Patong, Rawai, Karon, Kata and Panwa. Relax with our elephants as they roam our land. Walk with our elephants and watch them play in the water, throw mud on themselves and communicate with each other. Louise Rogerson and her team have created something simply breathtaking.

An Afternoon at Tree Tops
We put our elephants first. We do not offer bathing with elephants as it is dangerous and unhygienic. Walk with our elephants through our stunning forest reserve, observe and learn about elephants as they roam, bathe and play freely without crowds of people surrounding them.
We have many species of wild butterflies, local and migrating birds.
Come and visit our peaceful sanctuary, loose yourself for a few hours, and take the most amazing photos.

What an incredible visit I had to this wonderful ethical elephant reserve. The reserve was, only a short while ago, an establishment where the elephants were used simply for tourists' entertainment. But it has been transformed into a wonderful sanctuary where they can live out...More

We had an amazing morning at Tree Tops Elephant Reserve, which was transformed earlier this year from an elephant riding/trecking "attraction" to an elephant sanctuary. Same location, same elephants and mostly the same handlers and staff, yet the elephants are now free to roam, eat,...More
