Krabi: Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary Half-Day Tour

1. Krabi: Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary Half-Day Tour

Interact with majestic elephants on this day tour from Krabi to the Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary. Travel in a comfortable and airconditioned vehicle and enjoy a snack, seasonal fruit, and a drink. Learn about these incredible creatures and join them in the water.  On the day of your visit, get picked up from your accommodation and drive to Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary. There, you will be met by your English-speaking guide and learn about the history of elephants in Thailand, their behavior, what they eat, and their individual stories. After being allocated bananas to feed to the elephants, you will be able to feed free-roaming elephants and learn about their individual stories. You can touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their stories, lifestyle, and behaviors. Most of the elephants are rescued logging or riding elephants, but they are now safe and well cared for at this no-riding sanctuary. After you have met all the elephants, watch them enjoy their mud spa and join them. The elephants apply mud on their skin as a healthy sunscreen and mud treatment. Next, walk with the elephants, bathe them, and join them in the water for a refreshing cool-off. Brush the elephants while they frolic and play in the water and watch them enjoy being pampered. Once the elephants are clean, you can take some final photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy some seasonal fresh fruits and coconut water before your transfer back to the hotel.

What people are saying about Aonang Elephant Sanctuary

This experience is an absolute must! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and one I will never forget! The whole visit from start to finish was amazing! Pick up/drop off to your hotel, fresh hot and cold drinks along with a big fruit platter and snacks offered throughout your stay. All the staff are so friendly and attentive. The main guide was really informative and funny! The elephants were well looked after and seemed very content with all the fuss they were receiving. We spent so much time feeding them, making their food then giving them a mud bath and washing them off! It was just exhilarating! You are given a locker to keep your belongings in, and you will shower at the end would bring a change of clothes if you wish. you don’t need your phone as much as you think you will as they will take literally hundreds of photos for you which they email to you for free. 10/10 experience!! A must on your to do list and great opportunity to help support the sanctuary.

If I could give us place more than five stars I would! I cannot rave enough about how incredible this experience was. The staff was phenomenal- they brought us into their world and explained everything very well. The elephants here are so clearly loved and cared for. You won’t regret booking this very special experience.
