Do you want to visit an elephant sanctuary on Koh Samui but without spending there a half or full day? Join us on a 1 hour elephant care & feeding program at Samui Elephant Home! This tour runs twice daily and is a great way to see and feed the elephants that were rescued from labour camps. We’ll start by picking you up directly from your hotel, 30-45 minutes before the tour starts. Hop into our vehicle, and we’ll whisk you away to the Samui Elephant Home, a scenic drive through the lush landscapes of Koh Samui. Upon arrival at the Samui Elephant Home, you’ll be greeted with open arms and a friendly smile. Our knowledgeable guide will provide you with a brief but informative overview of the day’s program. Get ready to meet our incredible elephants, each with its own unique personality and charm.
Here’s where the fun begins! You’ll have the unique opportunity to actively participate in the care of our gentle giants. Join us in making supplementary food for the elephants, including their favorite treats like bananas, pumpkin, sticky rice, and sea salt, which is packed with vital vitamins. After preparing the delicious treats, it’s time to share them with the elephants. This is your moment to connect on a deeper level as you feed these majestic creatures. Don’t forget your camera because you’ll want to capture this heartwarming experience and take plenty of pictures with your new elephant friends. At the end of the elephant experience we’ll bring you back to your hotel anywhere on Koh Samui.

What to Expect at Samui Elephant Home
At Samui Elephant Home, we’ve made a safe and happy place for elephants that used to work a lot or were treated badly in the past. Now, we’ve opened our doors to everyone so you can hang out with these lovely elephants. Our next big plan is to make the first elephant hospital on Koh Samui. But to do that, we need to find really good doctors and get more money. You can help by visiting or sanctuary, even if it’s just a short trip to feed the elephants. Our main goal is to help take care of these big, gentle creatures. Come visit us at Samui Elephant Home and spend some close and personal time with them. This tour is suitable for all ages. Kids will love it!
At Samui Elephant Home we let the animals completely be themselves. This is a park where you can prepare food, feed them and walk with the elephants. It is mostly an observing experience, which is best for both you and the elephants.
Absolutely! Your children will love interacting with the elephants and can learn a lot from preparing their food and feeding them. We think it's a great idea to show them at a young age that elephants are not meant to be used for hard work but should be part of nature. That's where they feel free and comfortable. You don't have to book tickets for children below 4 years old as they are free to join if they are accompanied by at least one paying adult.
We are open year round, rain or sunshine. The elephants enjoy the rain as they can have fun in the mud and water. Don’t worry about the weather: if it’s necessary we’ll provide rain coats and umbrellas. Visiting Samui Elephant Sanctuary during a rainy day is something special!
You can cancel your booking for free up until 24 hours in advance of the tour start date, no questions asked. We’ll refund you the deposit or you can choose to use it as an advance to a different booking or tour.
