Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary, Sukhothai

(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Step into the natural habitat of elephants at Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary, a unique and inspiring place where a select number of guests can live with rescued and retired elephants. The sanctuary began after Katherine, a volunteer at an elephant hospital, stood face to face with the harsh realities of life for elephants in Thailand. She created the sanctuary as a dedicated and safe home for elephants, where they are free to live life as intended. Guests have the rare opportunity to learn the stories of each of the sanctuary animals and the elephant that started it all. You'll live with, care for, and interact with these magical creatures. The sanctuary restricts its capacity so places fill up quickly; be sure to reserve long in advance.
