Highlights

  • Interact with elephants up close and enjoy learning about their behavior and history
  • Experience caring for elephants by preparing and feeding them, and giving them a mud spa and bath
  • Enjoy a delicious Thai lunch with fruits, tea and coffee

Description

Your day begins at 11 AM in the morning at your hotel in Phuket or Phang Nga, where you will be met by your English speaking guide to depart for the elephant sanctuary. Upon arrival at the Elephant Care Park, you will be given a traditional Mahout uniform to wear, before receiving an introductory training session on the basics of the park and elephant care. Once you've completed your training, you will get to meet the elephants. Learn all about this magnificent animal, their behaviours and history. Help the keepers prepare special food for the elephants and then feed them. Spend some one-on-one time with the gentle giants, before sitting down to enjoy your own lunch. Enjoy a traditional Thai food lunch, accompanied by fresh fruit, tea and coffee. After resting up, take the elephants for a mud spa, which cools them down and protects them from parasites. End this amazing experience by bathing the elephants in the river and cleaning the mud off of them. Take another tea or coffee break before heading back to your hotel at the end of the day at 3:30 PM.
