Overview

We are very proud to bring the first elephant sanctuary to Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. Set on 10 acres of forest land, we offer a retirement home for elephants who have worked exhausting hours in the logging and tourism industries.​

Feed, walk with, and observe our gentle giants as they roam, socialise, bathe and enjoy a peaceful life that they so deserve.

Our concept of elephant care and welfare is inspired and supported by Lek Chailert, world renowned elephant conservationist, the founder of Save Elephant Foundation and world famous Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai.  Lek is at the forefront of ethical elephant tourism both in Thailand and throughout Asia, which is seeing a growing demand for elephant camps to transition from a trekking to sanctuary model under the Save Elephant Foundation’s ‘Saddle Off’ program.

We offer tours that educate about the importance of these phenomenal, majestic giants, with a unique opportunity to feed, walk with, and observe our elephants as they forage, socialize, and play in their fabulous purpose built pool.

The elephants in our care have previously endured a hard life working long hours for the tourism entertainment or logging industries; a striking contrast to the happy and peaceful lives they are now living, with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Our half day programs offer a memorable experience to spend time with our beautiful herd. To be in the presence of elephants is breathtaking and we are sure a day spent at Samui Elephant Sanctuary will leave you deeply moved by how incredible the largest land mammal on earth truly is.

Join our morning or afternoon program knowing you are supporting ethical elephant tourism and helping to make a difference.

The only place to see these beautiful giants

A truly beautiful place for these gentle giants. Highlight of our holiday in Koh Samui. The careers of the sanctuary are very caring, the elephants are clearly very happy. To be so close to these animals within their own space, roaming freely, having a little swim and mud bath... it’s like a dream. 2900 baht provides you with a shuttle to and from your hotel, unlimited drinks, tea and coffee on arrival. Lunch included - vegetarian only and very tasty. They ask on arrival for any food allergies. There is no where else I would go to see these beautiful animals. Perfect experience.

Excellent afternoon with the elephants, our group had a 7 Yr old, a teenager, a lady that walked with a stick and 3 adults. We all enjoyed every part of the visit. The guides were very good and had a good sense of humour. A change of clothes or swimming clothes is a must to really enjoy the interaction with the elephants. Food is excellent also, can't fault this trip would recommend to everyone, and they are doing a really fantastic work helping these beautiful creatures

If you are thinking about going here - then book!

We had previously visited a similar setup in India and were unsure about going again. When you read the agenda is claims that you spend about an hour with the elephants but given the price of the excursion that seems like a high price to pay v time spent. We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. There is no rush at all and you are provided with vast amounts of food to feed the elephants. You spend time with each individual elephant. We were spilt into small groups. Ours consisted of 4 adults and 1 child with the tour guide “Boy” who explained in great detail the back story of each elephant as well as detail about elephants in general. We both loved our time there and wound not hesitate to recommend it to anyone that’s contemplating making a booking. Although we weren’t interested in the lunch part - it is included and it was very good! All in all it’s a must do trip if you’re in Koh Samui!

A MUST visit. A magical day

Quite expensive but completely and utterly worth it. Magical experience to see the elephants saved from being abused in the logging industry. A wholesome and grounding day with delicious food
