About Our Sanctuary
Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is a final home for retired working elephants, set on 30 acres of the lush tropical jungle. Observe how elephants rehabilitate into forest life after decades of abuse and experience how incredible the largest land mammal on earth is during a day at our sanctuary.
Our mission is to provide as many elephants as possible with good health, freedom, and happiness they truly deserve. We use our progressive and ethically responsible approach to elephant eco-tourism as a platform to raise awareness and educate people from Thailand and around the world about elephant care and the plight of the Asian elephant.
However, at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, we enforce a strict NO RIDING policy. We do not make our elephants work or perform, or do any activity outside their natural behaviors.
