Upon arrival, your English-speaking tour guide will give you an introduction to the sanctuary and the elephants. Take some bananas and offer them to the elephants.

Brush off the mud and exfoliate their skin to give them a relaxing pampering. Next, learn how to prepare food and herbal medicine for elephants. The herbal medicine is a mixture of multiple nutrient sources needed by elephants to stay healthy. They are like a supplement to their diet. Enjoy relaxing and feeding ...
The most amazing, very ethical, real elephant sanctuary! Took me a long time to find it and I was starting to loose hope there is a place like that in South. So very glad I found you and thanks to you my husband and I fell in love with elephants❤️! It simply was the best experience ever, the highlight of our holidays in Thailand! Nothing else we did can compete with this unique and emotional half day spent at your sanctuary! You created an amazing place. Thank you to all the people that work there with gentle giants. You are simply amazing! We could tell from just being there for few hours how much love you have for elephants and how much passion and dedication for your job! Superstars! Your elephants are lucky to have you ❤️ I wish there was more places like that in Thailand and looking forward visiting next time when we are in koh Lanta ❤️

WITH OUR TOTALLY SYMPATHICAL GUIDE? NAAS? AND WE HAVE QUIETLY CROSSED THE MANGROVE FORESTS OF AN ALSO FRIENDLY GONDELIERI. WE HAVE OBSERVED SMALL, COLORED CANCER, MONKEYS AND EVEN DOLPHINS. ON THE GO, WE COULD TRY HOME-MADE TREATMENT IN BANANA LEAVES. IN A COCO PLANT, GOT FRESH PICKED COCONUT, DRINK RESPECTIVE JUICE. AT THE GUIDE AT HOME I COULD HELP TO MAKE A PAPAYA SALAD AND ADDED A FINE PASTA DISH WITH A CLICK. THIS EXCURSION WE RECOMMEND TO EVERY WARMEST! THANKS NAAS
Very nice nice, private excursion along the mangroves. Wildlife as expected; to see less now. At least a large macaque family was observed. Fortunately, they are not fed on this tour! It was also really nice to visit a small farm and stay in my nice guide's home. Here, under guidance, I was allowed to prepare my papaya salad myself. Very fine!
Worth every penny! Amazing experience! You can really get to know these animals and what’s more, you feel hosted thank you
Great experience. Would book it again. Unfortunately the group size could have been a bit smaller!
There were only 3 of us, so the guide was very interesting just for us and we had a great day
