Elephant Sanctuary Khao Sok
Khao Sok Elephant Sanctuary is a safe haven where our elephants are retired from work and live in the harmony of the rainforest. We have a few tour options available and look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of heaven in the beautiful area of Khao Sok. Our elephants live in the shade of palm trees with our own freshwater river flowing through the property where they can swim and drink.
And where you can sit on our swings and enjoy observing the elephants amidst their natural habitat, doing what elephants do. We don’t allow bathing, but you will be able to feed and take lots of photos with the elephants. Bathing stresses the elephants out, and it is always against their will to be forced into the water for tourists to ‘wash’ them.
The welfare of our animals comes first and foremost, so knowing that they do not like this practice we do not allow it. However, we have many other things you can do on our property, for example:
Making food for the elephants
Making banana leaf plates for you to take home
Making traditional Thai deserts for you yourselves to enjoy
Price 2,500 THB per person
Meet our elephants and feed them some bananas
Watch video on history of elephant tourism and how cruel it can be, this is why we opened sanctuary.
Make food for elephants at ‘Wassanas Kitchen’
Make Thai banana leaf desert
Walk with elephants and take photos and learn about each elephant and how they got here, their diet etc.
Return to visitor center and feed the elephants the food that you made at the beginning of the tour (the rice balls or chopped fruit).
Vegetarian lunch served for all guests at the end with beverages.
