Welcome to Samui Elephant Sanctuary
Providing a More Natural Life for Elephants
We are proud to be the first elephant sanctuary established on Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. Thanks to the kind support of our guests, we have since opened a second sanctuary on the island so that more rescued elephants can live a life of ease and dignity.
Both sanctuaries are set on forested land, offering a safe retirement home for elephants who have worked exhausting hours in the logging and tourism industries.
Feed the elephants, walk with them, and observe these gentle giants as they roam, socialise, bathe, play in the mud, and enjoy the peaceful life that they deserve.
Join our morning or afternoon program, knowing that you are supporting ethical elephant tourism and helping to improve the lives of Thai elephants.
Thank you to all of the kind people who helped to support our elephants during the Covid crisis. Your support is greatly appreciated.
