Description

Phang Nga Elephant Park is a family-run elephant Sanctuary. Located in the picturesque, rural Thai jungle, our family has been caring for elephants for over 150 years and have dedicated their lives to the health and welfare of their elephants and now, are passionate about sharing the amazing world of Asian Elephants in Thailand. Learn about the Kwan-chang’s (elephant handler’s) morning routine. Together with your guide, you will go into the jungle to find your elephant after her night foraging in the surrounding hills. Enjoy exploring the real Thai jungle alongside your gentle giant before walking with your elephant to Phang Nga Elephant Park where you will join the Kwan-chang giving her a morning bath. After this truly amazing experience, you will accompany your elephant back to Phang Nga Elephant Park where you will feed her and watch a demonstration of an elephant health check. You will be offered a delicious, freshly-cooked, traditional Thai brunch. This is no ordinary elephant park, and this is a very special experience enabling our visitors to be with elephants and their handlers as it really is. We are certain that you will find the early start will be completely worth it. Our elephants have come from working camps all over Thailand and spend their days relaxing, socialising, eating and being amazing ambassadors for their species. It is our mission to commit ourselves to the highest degree of care possible for our elephants and educate both our international guests as well as Thai elephants owners on the ethical way of caring for elephants in Thailand.

Important Information

  • Phang Nga Elephant Park is a small family-run Park. Our family has cared for elephants for over 150 years, with each generation learning something new about the Asian elephant and their welfare. The Park is like a typical small, rural Thai village, where thirty people live and work together with their elephants and families. Animal welfare is paramount at Phang Nga Elephant Park. We consider that responsible and ethical elephant tourism will help to save the Asian elephant, but requires the highest level of care and husbandry. We are against unnatural and abusive practices and strive constantly to improve animal welfare and to promote education.
