Hutsadin Elephant Foundation, Hua Hin

4.0
#1 of 9 in Wildlife in Hua Hin
Spend some time with Earth's largest land animal at Hutsadin Elephant Foundation. You'll have the opportunity to take an elephant for a trek through the forest and help wash it, or try riding one. The foundation is a nonprofit organization, started to rescue elephants abandoned by their owners due to ill health, old age, or simply because they were unable to work any longer. Unlike many elephant tourism experiences, this organization works hard to educate people about cruelty to elephants. If you just can't get enough of these mammoth creatures, consider lending a hand--volunteering opportunities are available from one week minimum.

  • We received a warm welcome when we got there. Then an English speaking guide took us to a short walk with one of the old elephant ladies when we fed her bananas and pineapples and took some photos. After the walk we washed her with a water hose. Then went to meet a young elephant who gave us the cutest hugs! All the elephants in the sanctuary were rescued and we're so happy to spend our money there instead of a safari where they abuse poor animals.
  • Able to touch and hug the elephants invoke a most exhilarating feeling, especially the elephants here are rehab in this sanctuary. You can feel the safe and happy atmosphere provided for the elephants and the kind and caring staff working, some of them are volunteers. Keep up the good job guys👏👍
