Full description
Start the adventure with pickup from your hotel and travel to the nature park to meet the elephants. Listen to your guide share information about the Elephant Retirement Park and the story of the rescued elephants that live here. After that, prepare some healthy treats and a meal to take up to the mountain where the fun begins. Get up close and personal with the elephants as you feed them a selection of fresh fruits and sugar canes. Enjoy this exclusive romantic experience with your partner and admire these incredible mammals in their natural habitat. After you’ve fed the elephants, it’s time for your lunch too. Enjoy a sumptuous traditional Thai lunch, that you can learn to make yourself in the kitchen. After lunch, learn how to bathe the elephants and scrub them with mud to protect their skin from sunburn and insects. Marvel at the elephants as they play around in the mud and make a splash, this is a truly unique and immensely fulfilling experience that will be remembered forever. At the end of the experience, wash off the mud at the onsite shower, where towels and soap are provided.

    Absolutely amazing. It was beyond our expectations. The elephants are treated so well. We researched all of the sanctuaries because it was important to us. Although we were able to bathe with them, the elephants enjoyed time on their own and we just observed which was wonderful. The keeper obviously has a great relationship with them. These are rescued elephants that have been terribly mistreated in the past but have found a peaceful and loving environment to live and yes, tourists are welcomed but this is to raise money and it was very much about the elephants and not us, which is the way it should be.

    Amazing! Manny, Kim and Bell and Tuptim made great memories! Can’t wait to see how the baby elephant Jackie grows! Lana (elephant) was so friendly and let us play with her. They catered for my wife who’s vegetarian. We bathed the elephants, fed medicine balls and played with them. Absolutely amazing experience! Highly recommend!!! Great being 1 on 1 with these beautiful elephants!!
