  • Please, if you are in Phuket and thinking of seeing/ learning about these be beautiful creatures, I cannot recommend Phuket Elephant Park enough!! Me and my partner visited PEP last Wednesday (23rd October 2019) whilst visiting Phuket. We had done extensive research to make sure our money was going to the right place for the beautiful animals. We ALMOST gave up hope of finding a legitimate sanctuary/ park that cares for elephants the way they should be cared for, I'm so glad we didn’t give up! A friend of mine had recommended Phuket Elephant Park and, like all the places I had looked at, I had my reservations, especially as there are SO many places in Thailand/ Phuket claiming to offer a safe haven for elephants, the name ‘sanctuary’ we believe has been tarnished by some that have a huge tourist incentive and are not 100% what they claim to be. PEP however is not one of those places. Currently they have rescued 4 older elephants (aged between 48 and 70!) and offer a place for them to retire peacefully after whatever they have all gone through to entertain people. We were given a presentation by one of the founders and then shown a video, explaining all too often what elephants go through to entertain and to ensure they are safe around people, even now, remembering what we were told/ shown, I have a lump in my throat! I am a HUGE elephant lover and this experience is one I will never forget!! Please, keep doing what you’re doing! Myself and my partner sincerely hope you can grow and rescue more elephants! Thank you so much!
  • I wanted to go to the most Ethical Sanctuary so i did weeks of research... I did not want to follow the sheep who go to well known so called Sanctuaries (that are not real ones where you bath with them etc). I wanted a Unique intimate experience where you feel at one with the Elephants in a beautiful natural Environment. Phuket Elephant Park is all that and more. The Owner and mahouts are so inspirational fulled with compassion and love for the the Elephants that melted our hearts. I 100% recommend you go and and support true ethical tourism you will have the best day ever
  • Such an amazing and intimate experience! PEP is a true ethical sanctuary and there is no doubt about it once you experience it first hand and meet the people behind it (and the Ellis of course). You get a chance to meet and feed the elephants, hear about their background and the best part for me was standing right along side them and seeing just how truly beautiful these friendly giants are. The elephants are loved and cared for and it shows. A delicious veg lunch was served and the half day is a perfect amount of time. No riding and no bathing is what I was looking for and PEP was the right choice for sure. Thank you!
  • Great half day tour to see and feed rescued elephants. You can tell that the staff really care for their elephants and want them to live long, happy and low stress lives. Easy pick up and return to hotel in air-conditioned van. I hope they can rescue many more of these awesome creatures.
  • It’s a very special and moving experience for everybody ♥️🐘 Before we came to Phuket, we spent a lot of time by searching a good elephant place - good - I don’t mean, good for people entertainment... I mean, good and ethical for animals. And I can truly say, that we found the best one. The staff, volunteers and workers are here very friendly and they really love elephants! It was beautiful to hear, with how much love they are talking about rescued giants. They shown us a presentation to understand the problems elephants in Thailand have. I still have tears in my eyes, when I remember pictures of bad treating and violence against elephants from the presentation video... But I’m happy to know, that people like the Phuket elephant park staff exist, who rescue this beautiful creatures. At the end of our visit, we got a big tasty vegetarian lunch! As a vegetarian I was in the paradise! I’m very glad, I didn’t choose a park, which offers bathing with elephants, because it’s not a nature for them to take a bath with thousands of tourists and makes photo shooting with them... Please support this beautiful place by visiting, sharing and talking about them! You can help them on that way to rescue more and more of this amazing animals!! I can truly recommend the Phuket Elephant Park! It’s a real sanctuary and a final home for elephants . A place, where people work with love and in peace with them♥️
