Get up close to Thailand's elephants in this amazing sanctuary where they can freely roam. Here at the elephant sanctuary, retired and rescued elephants (due to age, ill health, disability, abuse or illegal ownership) now find a forever home. The elephants can freely roam around the sanctuary by day, and then are taken to the forest in the early evening. You will be spending time alongside experienced mahouts, who invest their entire lives gaining an understanding of the elephants and how best to care for them. You will get the chance to experience and bond with these gentle giants by feeding and bathing them, and by swimming with them Here, we work for the elephants, not the other way around. As at all Totally Travel programs worldwide, there is no elephant riding here. The location, Kanchanaburi is truly one of Thailand's natural gems and the perfect place to indulge in nature and spend time with the elephants at the sanctuary. Its surrounding limestone hills create an unimaginably beautiful landscape enhanced by its numerous bamboo-style buildings, stunning meandering rivers and unique temple caves. As well as plenty of time with the elephants, we will take you out to discover Kanchanaburi's gorgeous natural scenery.
