Spending time with some of nature's grandest creatures at ElephantsWorld, a center that is firmly focused on animal welfare, sustainability, and ecology. Established in 2008, this non-profit organization acts as a sanctuary for sick, old, disabled, abused, and rescued elephants, who enjoy a decent quality of life here. Feed them, wash them, and help with their care: the elephants here are treated with respect, having been taken out of poor conditions elsewhere. Staff will inform you as to the behavior of elephants in the wild, the dangers facing them, and what can be done to protect them.

  • Wow, what a great experience! This has been the highlight of our trip. I couldn’t stop laughing while bathing the baby elephant who was more playful than my two daughters. I have seen elephants in Thailand literally hundreds of times before but never had played with one like this before. Truly unforgettable.
  • Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. If you do one thing in Thailand. Do this. These people are Amazing. They essentially are taking good care of the Elephants and raising money to house and feed them. They even keep very old and frail Elephants around long after they stop having the ability to eat solid/tough food. They make soft food for the old Elephants and put vitamins in the food for their health. They provide a once in a lifetime experience for tourists, which shouldn’t be missed. Thai people are kind with a big heart. Please support them. GO YELLOW TEAM!
