Krabi elephant sanctuary activities

At the elephant sanctuary we will do a number of activities. We walk the elephants to a pond close by first. Get close to them and lead them to the water, where they can drink and freshen up. We also prepare food and herbal medicine for the elephants here. They eat and drink a  lot as you will see during your stay here. Herbal medicine is used in many ways and keeps the elephants healthy and strong. Some of them have been working in logging camps or were part of elephant trekking parks. In the sanctuary they are really being taken care of. This is the place where they can grow old in peace.

When the food is prepared, we feed the elephants together.

Elephant bathing & mud spa

Our last activities of the day include water: first we take them to a muddy pond where the elephants enjoy a mud spa. Here they can lie down and relax, while we play with them. After that it’s time for an elephant bath. Get into your bathing suit and jump in the water with the elephants. At the Krabi elephant house sanctuary you can wash them and just play with the water. This is an amazing activity for young and old!

After around 5 hours of elephant activities it’s unfortunately time to head back home. First you can take a shower at the sanctuary, followed by a transfer back to your hotel. The ride back should take around 30 minutes. You will be back in your hotel by 13:00 (morning program) or 16:00 (afternoon program). Book your trip to the ethical elephant sanctuary in Krabi here!

We had a lovely morning at the elephant house in Krabi. Thank you for your help in booking this trip last minute. Perfectly fine day

 by AnneMarie

Wonderful experience at the elephant park. I was a bit worried about the elephants being held in cages or on chains but it proved to be so wrong. The park employees take so good care and are amazingly friendly to us and the elephants themselves. One of the highlights of our trip to Krabi!

wonderful trip

Took the half day trip in november 2018. Pickup on time and short ride away we visited the elephant sanctuary. Our kids (and we too) loved to play and bathe with them. I am not sure if this trip is suitable for very young kids as they might be afraid, but ours (6 and 8) had an amazing day out. Thanks for organizing our day!
