Everything was great! The food was amazing and it was so nice to see these elephants being taken care of like they’re supposed to be. I would definitely do this again the next time I come back! And it was t too hot in the morning so I recommend getting the morning tour.
What majestic creatures these elephants are. SO glad we did this tour, it was not cheap, but the day was amazing. The organisation was impeccable from start to finish and lunch incredible. I hadn't realised we had breakfast included, quite a bonus.
The place is a beautiful bit of jungle and they are building walk ways to minimise the impact on the elephants. Fed the elephants and you can see them smiling. AMAZING. They are so well looked after as were we, but they were more important (as it should be)!
I did research and this is the only truly ethical sanctuary in Phuket. Was interesting that the visitors were mainly ~30 years and younger, and we discussed our research and all came to the same conclusion - ethical tourism is important.
My advice - ignore the others and visit here!!
