A half-day package to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary offers visitors an enjoyable opportunity to spend quality time with elephants in their natural home, as well as gain an insight into their history and behavior, and create cherished lifelong memories of their time spent with these amazing animals.
On the morning of your visit, you will arrive at the Sanctuary, meet your English-speaking guide, and learn a little about the elephants.
After being allocated bananas and sugar cane to feed to the elephants, you will walk with your guide through the Sanctuary, where you will find free-roaming elephants and hear their individual stories. You can touch, feed, photograph, and interact with the elephants at your leisure while you learn about their lifestyle and behaviors.
After you have met all the elephants, you will accompany them to a nearby mud spa. Get muddy with the elephants as you apply a healthy cosmetic mud treatment to their skin. Next, you will walk with the elephants to a nearby pool and join them in the water for a refreshing bath. Take a swim and help bathe and brush the elephants while they wade through and play in the water.
Once the elephants are clean, you can take some final photos with them, and then it will be time to part ways with your new friend and change into some dry clothes. Finally, enjoy a delightful Thai buffet before saying one last goodbye to your new friends before departing from EJS.
*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.
