Elephant Trekking in Phuket

Phuket Elephant Trekking is not cool anymore! Now comes the true ‘Ethical Elephant Sanctuaries‘, where elephant rescued from a terrible life of labour can finally be free. Note that ethical sanctuaries are not to be confused with Elephant camps where you get to bathe with the elephants.

It also encourages other old fashioned trekking camps to switch to this more ethical activity. People love elephants so much – It would be silly to come to Phuket without taking the time to stop and admire some elephants. You don’t have to ride them but aren’t we are all naturally attracted by these animals? So this is your chance to observe some of them very closely.

You get to learn about elephants and how things are finally changing. It’s slow, but you can tell people are happy about this new approach. They prepare food and soft medication for the animals while listening to the story. Read more about ethical elephant sanctuaries

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
