A safe home for rescued and retired elephants, Krabi Elephant Sanctuary invites you to spend a few hours in the company of these gentle giants, walking through the jungle, feeding them, and giving them a bath in a fresh water lagoon. Note that the sanctuary doesn't allow elephant riding, but if you're ready to step out of your comfort zone you can learn how to make paper from elephant dung.

This is the real deal. People here give three overworked / old elephants a nice place to retire. Every other place would just expose the elephants to more people to increase the profits. Not the Krabi elephant sanctuary. Limited number of visitors (maximum 20 at a time). Great English guide. Gentle caretakers. Amazing and super friendly animals. Great interaction. You are actually helping - really HELPING - the sanctuary to prepare food and feed / clean the elephants. It was an absolutely amazing day. And I am absolutely convinced that the money is very well spent here.
Incredible experience, I highly recommend. The guide was very informative and welcoming. I was also impressed with the facilities, there are clean showers, toilets and lockers. The program was very well thought out. You get to be real close to the elephants and pet them. They look happy and under great care.
