A beautiful peaceful environment for these lovely animals. The elephants are cared for by a team dedicated to their wellbeing. Our half day visit consisted of preparing breakfast and hand feeding them. We then scrubbed their bodies with mud in the mud bath followed by scrubbing them in the fresh water pond. All the elephants really look so happy and enjoying their new retired lifestyle.
An absolute must to visit during your stay in Phuket.

Amazing. You prepare their food, then fed them. Rub them with mud and wash them and yourself. They're so gentle and beautiful. One is expecting a baby in one month so I'm a tad envious of those visiting after the grand event.
This is a 'must do'. These are rescued elephants, not for riding or tricks. Each has its own story.
