What to expect

We will pick you up with an air-conditioned minibus for the morning program between 7:20 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. or in the afternoon between 1:00 p.m. and 1:50 p.m. at your specified accommodation, and then guide you in the east of Koh Samui. Step by step, all other participants are collected for this activity until the entire travel group is completely together. 

Welcome and Introduction
When you arrive at the elephant shelter, there you will be warmly welcomed and you will be introduced to the elephant protection project. The elephants here can have a pleasant everyday life. As you will experience for yourself, the muhats and employees of the elephant shelter treat the magnificent pachyderms very lovingly and sensitively.

Preparation of the meal
Next, we prepare a very healthy and nutritious meal for the elephants together. You will then have enough time to feed and stroke the animals yourself. It is a unique and unforgettable experience to come so close to an elephant and feed its cold, rough, powerful trunk.

Watch the elephants
As soon as the pachyderms have enjoyed their meal, you can also take the time to watch the elephants while they are strolling through the extensive grounds. The elephants need a rest break, which the trained staff pays very careful attention to. If you have any questions, the employees are always at your disposal.

Pool and mud bath
After the elephants have rested, they often have fun playing and taking a pleasant dip. An artificially created pool and a mud area are available for this purpose. The unique creatures love to roll around in the mud and splash each other wet. An unforgettable sight is guaranteed.

Vegetarian meal
To satisfy your hunger, you will be served a delicious vegetarian meal in a cozy little restaurant on the premises. This peaceful and quiet place is a great option to see Koh Samui from another side to avoid mass tourism and unnecessary animal shows altogether.

We will pick you up around 12:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. with an air-conditioned minibus in the east, and then guide you back to the accommodation you have deposited. Step by step, all other participants of the activity will be dropped off until the entire tour group has completely reached their accommodations.

Tolles Erlebnis

Ich kann den Besuch im Elephant Haven sehr empfehlen. Es war ein schöner, gut organisierter Tag. Die Elefanten sehen glücklich und zufrieden aus. Füttern und streicheln ist erlaubt. Es werden Elefanten vor dem Gehege gefüttert und auch im Gehege ohne Gitter. Sehr beeindruckende Tiere. Dazu erfährt man auch das ein oder andere über die Elefanten, ohne das es zu langwierig wird. :)

Elephant Haven

Our best day in Thailand was visiting this elephant reserve. The work the team is doing to rescue the elephants is truly amazing. We loved preparing food for and feeding the elephants.

Sehr zu empfehlen - einmaliges Erlebnis

Die Elefanten leben dort sehr friedlich und artgerecht. Die meisten wurden gerettet und werden nun rundum gut betreut. Die Elefanten können tun was sie wollen und werden zu nichts gezwungen. Einmalige Erfahrung einen Elefanten zu füttern. Ich kann die Tour jedem empfehlen :)

Awesome Experience

Everything perfect. The Transport was on time, and the Tour Guide a really nice guy. We learned really much about elephants and there natural behaviour, saw some really old and baby elephants and could also feed them and take many pictures. 😎
