Happy Elephant Home - Half day
Our day has been designed to give you a wonderful experience without riding, hurting or exploiting these beautiful animals. Come and experience a fantastic day, helping us take care of these amazing creatures. Spend the day feeding, bathing and learning interesting facts about Asian elephants in their natural environment.
We are a small sanctuary with between 5 to 10 elephants. All our elephants are rescued from places where they had to work hard, without much time to eat, drink and socialize with other elephants. At our farm they can roam free, swim in the river, take a mud bath and eat whenever and as much as they want.
Children younger than 7 years pay only 900 Baht entrance.
