Tour details

You can choose a morning or afternoon departure for this tour.

We start the trip with a pickup from your hotel or villa on Koh Samui. Our air conditioned van will take you to Samui Elephant Home, which is conveniently located close to the tourist center of Koh Samui.

On arrival we watch a video together that explains what we want to accomplish with the sanctuary:
To help, care and conserve elephants for the purpose of providing a home and help them in the long run. As well as to return them to their natural habitats and raise the number of Asian Elephants in Thailand. .

We then prepare vegetables and fruit and start feeding them. An amazing opportunity to get close to the elephants! They will love the treat. We then walk with them through the jungle where we can see how they behave when they feel calm and relaxed. They will look for food and play with each other. We then move over to the mud and water pool, where you can see the elephants bathing and playing in the water.

We will also visit the Elephant Hospital and Nursery, which is currently still under development but soon finished. The last stop of the tour is discovering the advantages of elephant dung for organic paper production.

Food & drinks

The tour includes complimentary snacks and sandwiches.  During the day you can get free coffee or tea and water. Please bring a reusable water bottle that you can fill up to stay hydrated. Especially during the hot season!

At the end of the tour we bring you back to your hotel or villa. Book this amazing ethical elephant care experience online now!
