3 Days With Elephants
| Phuket |

Our 3 Days With Elephants program offers visitors to Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket an unrivalled opportunity to spend time interacting with and observing elephants in a peaceful, natural setting. Gain a deep insight into elephant behaviour and get to know these beautiful animals on an individual level as you participate in a variety of rewarding activities, and create cherished lifelong memories. 

This program begins every Monday and Friday.

*Please note: Due to governmental guidelines related to the pandemic, EJS is able to offer certain participatory activities, including bathing with elephants and entering mud areas, only to those visitors who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Visitors who are not yet vaccinated, or who are partially vaccinated (according to Thai vaccination standards), may participate in an interactive elephant shower experience while following social distancing guidelines. Such visitors are, at the present time, unable to enter the mud ‘spa’ with the elephants, or to participate in bathing/swimming activities at any EJS location, however they may observe these activities from nearby. These changes are effective from 1 October, 2021 until further notice.
