Amazing and unforgettable experience. The staff have a genuine passion and love for the elephants and their welfare which comes across in spades. The elephants are like family members and you really get a sense of some of their personalities with interacting with them and the stories from those who care for them. Loved it.

A very informative and educational encounter with these magnificent creatures. The main guides were very knowledgeable and the inclusive lunch was very good.

However, given that the centre operates 7 days a week and the elephants go through the same routine at least twice daily with groups of tourists I find it hard to accept that this is the best ethical elephant experience. Yes their lives are significantly better than before BUT they’re still “performing” for food and treats. 🤔

And on those grounds I cannot give it a 5 and question its ethical credentials.

If you go to Koh Samui you MUST visit the Elephant Sanctuary. It is a truly incredible three hours learning and caring for the rescued elephants in a safe haven with companionship of other rescued elephants. This is an ethical and award winning sanctuary.

There are a number of elephant preserves - that go many different names - on the island, BUT this IS THE place to go. Others allow you to ride or wash elephants. This is NOT OK for elephants, it harms them.

Koh Samui Elephant Sanctuary costs a little more to visit but 95% of entry fee go to feed and care for the elephants . It is an awesome donation . Everyone who works and cares for the elephants are volunteers.

They have two locations one in Bophut other in Chaweng Noi. Both have same itinerary for morning or afternoon. Chaweng Noi sanctuary is bigger than Bophut.

You learn about the life of these and other elephants in Thailand. It is not a happy life.
Also get to make their food, feed and walk with them.

A really awesome experience to be up close with these gentle creatures.

We loved visiting the sanctuary to see the rescued elephants. They have been rescued from logging and being ridden. We were able to feed them and pat their trunks when feeding. Nice to know they will live out the remainder of their days being looked after. Visiting them helps to fund their food.
Please don't go to places who let you bathe the elephants. This sanctuary doesn't and you can watch them really closely in their own habitat. Swimming and taking mud baths. Definitely recommend a visit. ✨️

Visiting the Koh Samui Elephant Sanctuary was the most incredible experience of my life. This sanctuary stands as a beacon of hope and compassion for elephants that have endured harsh lives in the logging and tourism industries. Here are a few highlights of my visit that made it truly unforgettable:

Ethical Treatment and Care
The sanctuary is dedicated to ethical treatment of elephants, which is evident in every aspect of their operations. There are no elephant rides or tricks, just a focus on the well-being and natural behavior of these magnificent creatures. The staff are highly knowledgeable and passionate about elephant care, providing a safe and nurturing environment for the elephants to live freely.

Immersive Experience
The tour was intimate and well-organized, offering a deeply immersive experience. We were given the opportunity to observe the elephants up close as they roamed freely, bathed, and interacted with each other. The guides provided insightful information about each elephant's history and the sanctuary's mission, enhancing our understanding and appreciation of these gentle giants.

Feeding and Interaction
One of the most memorable parts of the visit was feeding the elephants. We were given baskets of fruit and had the chance to hand-feed the elephants, which was a thrilling experience. The elephants seemed genuinely happy and at ease, and it was heartwarming to see them enjoy their meals.

The Koh Samui Elephant Sanctuary is more than just a tourist attraction; it's a place of sanctuary and hope for elephants. My visit there was an emotional and transformative experience that I will cherish forever. If you ever find yourself in Koh Samui, I highly recommend visiting this sanctuary. It’s an experience that not only brings you closer to these amazing animals but also supports a crucial cause.

An incredible experience! This tour was so well coordinated from start to finish. It’s so apparent the staff care for these beautiful animals and treat them with the utmost respect. Elephants are given their own space and the sanctuary ensures they are not bringing in additional elephants to crowd the others. You are given plenty of time with the elephants, feeding and interacting with them in a respectful manner. As an added bonus, you are provided with unlimited drinks and snacks as well as a delicious lunch. I would highly recommend this sanctuary for an ethical tourist experience!

Absolutely great place , visited in morning was given a short video on the elephant sanctuary. Staff incredible, very knowledgeable, great group size. Got to make the elephants lunch . Had loads of photos and touching them . Even provided transport and lunch which was excellent . There stories are very sad but I guess now they are in a retirement home. Cared for and looked after by amazing staff. Please don’t go anywhere else in koh Samui especially if they ride them it’s so cruel. Thanks so much for our experience it was very special.

What a great experience from start to finish. We were picked up promptly from our hotel and driven to the sanctuary - where we were given a briefing and shown a short video on the does and don'ts 🐘

We then made food for the rescued elephants - be prepared to get your hands mucky 😍, next we fed some of them whilst being told about their previous lives - which was heart breaking when you hear what they have been through.

We also did a walk through the sanctuary to meet some other elephants.

Our visit was made even more enjoyable by the very charismatic and knowledgeable Jay 😀

The morning was finished with some lovely home cooked food (vegetarian). I can highly recommended - it may seem expensive but all the monies received goes to the running of the sanctuary.

My wife and I visited the Chaweng Noi location this past Monday (April 2024). The pickup from our hotel (Crystal Beach area) was punctual. Arrival was stress free (bring cash, don't be that tourist).

Breakfast snacks are provided. Lunch was plentiful and tasty. The entire agenda is well paced with plenty of explanation. The staff are all angels.

It put me at ease knowing that the entire enterprise is elephant-first. The gentle giants have experienced a hard life; this is their well-deserved retirement. As important, the team doesn't shelter you from the reality of what these lucky few elephants were saved from and what many elephants continue to experience. Education is a must to effect broader change, beginning with international tourists. Don't ride elephants; don't swim with elephants, and spread the good word to others.

Important to highlight the unbridled fun of feeding an elephant!! If that is a so-so activity for you, then you live a much more entertaining life than me.

This is one not too miss.
