Explore the lush jungle of Koh Samui and feed the elephants in a sanctuary on a guided tour. Marvel at the beautiful Namuang Waterfall and enjoy a delicious lunch at the top of Samui Mountain.
Enjoy the company of an elephant in Samui at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. We promote the sustainable and ethical way of treating elephants and our little elephant village in Samui is an example of that. Our trained English-speaking guides give visitors insight into the behavior and the personal history of our elephants, while our mahouts help people realize incredible life experiences such as bathing elephants or feeding them by hand.
The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is nearby Bor Phud, Just 20 min from Samui international airport. When you arrive at the Sanctuary, the guides will give you a basic overview of the tour, our elephant welfare programs, some information about the elephants and then traditional Karen clothes to wear during the tour. Since the tour can get messy and wet (in a very fun way!) we suggest that you bring some things with you. Bring a hat, sunscreen, a bathing suit, a towel and a change of clothes.
Throughout your visit at Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, you will be feeding, bathing and even touching the elephants. It is also important to us that you learn as much as possible about the elephants and why it is important to protect them. With the money we raise from visits and donations, we can contribute to elephant welfare. We rescue elephants, feed them, provide veterinary care as well as land and infrastructure for them to live on.
* Please Note: At the Sanctuary, we will allow you to spend as much time as possible with the elephants. Therefore, there is no formal schedule and aside from pick-up times, the times shown here are approximations.
