“Handsdown the experience of a lifetime, a must do for anyone visiting Phuket!

This reserve is an amazing place for close encounters with beautifully cared for and loved elephants. It’s also eco-friendly and conservation-focused. No single-use plastics and all the elephant dung is recycled into beautiful paper or bio-gas for cooking and compost.

I absolutely loved my time there and highly recommended!”

ABOUT US

 

Located near the famous beaches on the west coast of Phuket Thailand, the Phuket Nature Reserve – Elephant Habitat is an educational, sustainable and eco-friendly elephant sanctuary providing a safe home to overworked and tired elephants rescued from the Thailand tourist industry.

As a pioneer in eco-tourism, our elephants have come from elephant riding parks, circus shows, the logging industry, street begging and other tourist attractions where they have often been exploited and neglected and welcomed into our natural jungle environment to live a protected & peaceful life.

We strive to build a natural environment with no single-use plastic and a high emphasis on sustainable living, reducing waste and looking after our planet and animals in the best way possible.

At the Phuket Nature Reserve – Elephant Habitat we invite visitors to come and learn about our beautiful gentle giants, observe and look after them at our stunning natural jungle elephant sanctuary in a sustainable manner that eliminates stress while providing a real connection and experience to our visitors

We guarantee a visit will leave you educated and inspired with a huge sense of appreciation & gratitude for the elephants, one of the most intelligent, graceful and largest land animals alive today!

“Amazing experience from beginning to end. Visiting this elephant sanctuary was a highlight of our holiday in Phuket. The whole team really care about the wellbeing of the elephants. Highly recommended!”
