Samui Elephant Home plans to be the very first elephant hospital on Koh Samui. During this tour you have the opportunity to feed the elephants, bathe with them and see them behaving naturally in their own habitat. The elephant hospital is worth a visit to see how they take care of sick animals. Most of them have a history as working elephants in the logging industry or driving tourists around on their back. It’s a good sign that these practices become something of the past. By visiting Samui Elephant Home you can contribute to a better future for these mighty animals!
Learn about the elephants in their natural habitat
Join in as we prepare food for the elephants. We’ll show you how we make healthy supplements. Afterwards we feed the elephants with organic food from around the camp like grass and bananas. Take some pictures with the elephants as well!
At Samui Elephant Home the elephants can roam freely. During their life they were mostly shackled by chains and used as a cheap work force. The mission of this sanctuary is to take care of them in their natural habitat and to increase public knowledge about this mighty animal. This will benefit our future generations and the elephants can get old happy and worry free!
Most definitely! Samui Elephant Home welcomes children of all ages. Safety is our concern, so we give young and old guidelines and rules at the start of the program. That way we can keep the trip safe and fun for everyone.
At the end of the tour, morning or afternoon, we serve vegetarian snacks. Think of sandwiches, salad rolls, spring rolls, spaghetti, fresh fruits and soft drinks. Do you have an allergy? Please let us know so we can prepare accordingly.
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 Home during a rainy day is something special!
