The Krabi Elephant House Sanctuary is a safe haven for Thai elephants, many of which have been rescued from years of labor in the logging or mass-tourism industries. These gentle, sociable, and highly intelligent animals are given the opportunity to live as they would in the wild. The sanctuary also advocates for elephants, educating locals and visitors about the importance of elephant conservation. During this three-hour experience, you will have the opportunity to:
- Meet the herd's matriarch, Elephant Thong, and go for a forest walk with the herd
- Prepare the herd's lunch, and feed and bathe them
- Watch the elephants having a mud bath – and if desired, enjoy a rejuvenating mud spa yourself
Against the magnificent backdrop of Krabi's lush greenery and freshwater lagoons, you can observe and interact with Thai elephants as they roam freely in their peaceful natural habitat, as well as participate in elephant conservation activities.
A visit to the Sanctuary will provide you with new perspectives about these magnificent animals, learning about the importance of elephant conservation from the people who dedicate their lives to Thai elephant protection.
