Wildlife Area
Spending time with some of nature's grandest creatures at ElephantsWorld, a center that is firmly focused on animal welfare, sustainability, and ecology. Established in 2008, this non-profit organization acts as a sanctuary for sick, old, disabled, abused, and rescued elephants, who enjoy a decent quality of life here. Feed them, wash them, and help with their care: the elephants here are treated with respect, having been taken out of poor conditions elsewhere. Staff will inform you as to the behavior of elephants in the wild, the dangers facing them, and what can be done to protect them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to ElephantsWorld and many more Kanchanaburi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kanchanaburi tour planner.

  • Great Place. Great to interact with the rescued elephants. Lunch was great.Hiyel pickup was also great. They just need more funding please to help them aquire the land the use. Thank you for a great time
  • Unforgettable experience up close with these amazing creatures. It was such a refreshing experience to work for a good cause in the midst of the tourism industry. The volunteers were awesome and the native staff very kind. I recommend this to anyone wanting to see something fantastic, make great memories or do good in the world.
  • We had a wonderful time cooking washing and feeding elephants. The elephants seem to be treated well at this place. Trip was well organized and also the lunch was magnificent. The only downside was that there was not enough time to go to the gift shop at the end of the day.
  • We spent a full day with our 5 year old daughter here and enjoyed it very much. We learned a lot about elephants and of course we got to interact with them, too. Feeding, preparing special meals, even bathing with them in the river, scrubbing elephants was a lot of fun.
  • It's a must visit if you're around Kanchanaburi. Forget al the commercial camps where they put 6 tourists on one animal for half an hour. Spend a day helping out in taking care of old and disabled elephants, that are taken care of in this not for profit organisation. Bathing the elephants is esspecially awesome, but both the parents and our kids utterly enjoyed the experience.
