Description

Observe free-roaming elephants in a safe environment on a tour from Phuket that includes hotel transfers, an on-site photographer, and a Thai lunch. Meet an elephant and kwan-chang (elephant handler), and bathe and feed the gentle giants. Upon arrival at the wildlife sanctuary, meet your guide and learn a little about the elephants as you take a walk through the forest. Touch, feed, photograph, and interact with these majestic animals while learning about their behavior. Receive bananas and sugarcane to give them a sweet treat. Then, guests will observe the elephants enjoying their natural mud spa and bathing rituals from a respectful distance. This approach prioritizes the well-being and autonomy of the elephants, allowing them to indulge in their natural behaviors unhindered and stress-free. Elephants, much like humans, value their private time, especially during activities like bathing. Watching them in their natural habitat offers a unique insight into their behaviors and ensures both their comfort and the safety of the guests. After observing these majestic creatures, guests can enjoy a traditional Thai lunch in a serene setting, reflecting on the beauty of the elephants in their natural state. You can also join a Thai cooking demonstration and see how a signature stir-fry dish are prepared. Later, end the tour with hotel drop-off.
