  • Scrub the elephant's skin with mud

Visit one of Phuket Elephant Care's two ethical sanctuaries, Kathu or Naithon, nestled in a lush green forest with a large natural lake. Get the chance to bathe and feed the elephants on an ECO tour you can feel good about. Also enjoy a convenient pickup service directly from your hotel by a comfortable minivan. Get picked up by your driver from your accommodation and head to the sanctuary where the friendly staff of Phuket Elephant Care will welcome you with coffee and tea, bread, and some snacks, and get an introduction to advanced ECO tourism to prepare for your encounter. Learn how to prepare the seasonal fruits for the elephants with this hands-on experience. Give the elephants their fruits and while they enjoy their food, learn from the guides about the background of each elephant. Next, pamper the elephants with a spa treatment. Discover the healing benefits of special spa mud that helps to heal elephant wounds from many kinds of scratches and skin damage. Finally, rinse off the mud from the elephant's skin with a rain shower. The last activity is to paint your own small magnetic elephant token which you can take back home together with a keychain as a souvenir. Leave inspired and informed, having supported the elephants in a sanctuary where they have maximum freedom to naturally roam, forage, bathe, and socialize.
