Khao Sok Elephant Sanctuary

We urgently need your help! Due to Covid and no tourists, our sanctuary is suffering and we have no money to feed the elephants and pay the mahouts. Please make even a small donation to our campaign.

About Us

          Khao Sok Elephant Sanctuary is a safe haven where our elephants are retired from work, and living in the harmony of the rainforest. We have a few tour options available, and look forward to welcoming you to our little peace of heaven in the beautiful area of Khao Sok. Our elephants live in the shade of the palm trees with our own fresh water river flowing through the property where they can swim and drink. And where you can sit on our swings and enjoy observing the elephants amidst their natural habitat, doing what elephants do. We don’t allow bathing, but you will be able to feed and take lots of photos with the eles. Bathing stresses the elephants out, and it is always against their will to be forced into the water for tourists to ‘wash’ them. The welfare of our animals comes first and foremost, so knowing that they do not like this practice we do not allow it. However, we have many other things you can do on our property, for example:
          🐘 Walking through our large property with our elephants
          🐘 Making food for the eles
          🐘 Making banana leaf plates for you to take home
          🐘 Making traditional Thai deserts for you yourselves to enjoy
We also offer the opportunity of planting seeds to grow grass and banana trees). Planting seeds will depend on the time of the year.
We know that you will enjoy the company of our elephants even more knowing that you are ensuring and participating in the ethical treatment of them.
