Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Pattaya is the newly-opened Pattaya branch of the established Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, based in Chiang Mai and Phuket for Thailand. We are extremely proud to be the very first operational Elephant Sanctuary in Pattaya!

Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is an ethical and sustainable eco-tourism project with locations approximately 60km from the city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, as well as a Sanctuary in Phuket, Thailand. Founded in July 2014, it is a joint initiative between members of the Karen hill-tribes and Chiang Mai locals who were concerned about the welfare of elephants in Thailand.

Currently comprised of 9 spacious locations (Mountain Village, Tranquil Valley, and Waterfall Grove Sanctuaries...), Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is home to almost seventy formerly mistreated elephants, who are now free to enjoy their lives.

Our mission is to provide as many elephants as possible with the good health, freedom, and happiness they truly deserve. We use our progressive and ethically responsible approach to elephant eco-tourism as a platform to raise awareness and educate people from Thailand and around the world about elephant care and the plight of the Asian elephant.

Our hope is to lead by example, and contribute to a positive change in the perception of elephants; to witness a future where elephants are not ridden, poached, overworked, or abused, and are instead treated with care, love, and respect.

The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary project also provides many Karen people with employment, education, and financial support.

*Please note that we are currently only arranging Half-Day visits to our Pattaya Sanctuary, to allow our elephants to become accustomed to their new environment, and group sized are limited to ensure their comfort. Full-Day and Overnight Visits, and Volunteer opportunities are available at our Chiang Mai locations.
