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 4 to 7 years of age pay only 900 Baht entrance. Children 1 - 3 years of age can join the trip for free.

I booked with PM tours the Happy elephant Tour and it was wonderful! The elephants were treated really well and they were rescued and it was great to see that it was a small centre where the elephants looked happy! Pim and Mickey are a great help to find a perfect tour for you from cooking courses to jungle trekkings to elephant sanctuaries!
