The elephants are treated ethically, and can enjoy a more relaxed and enjoyable life than that they were previously used to. Here you will have the opportunity to feed the elephants, walk with them and even help to shower them in a giant bath. It’s a truly unique experience that you can enjoy in some of Koh Samui’s most beautiful natural surroundings.
Samui Elephant Home offers a best memory experiences and activities such as learning the natural habitat of elephants and getting to know how they live in the wild.
