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.
