Elephant Sanctuary

Phuket Elephant Park is set against the backdrop of a national park. This is a real elephant sanctuary. No large groups of people, elephants allowed to relax and behave normally.

Facilities make it comfortable for people, but it is home to elephants. Visitors share beautiful surroundings with the rescued herd enjoying their new lives.

Protected jungle gives our residents room to roam, forage, swim, take mudbaths, and socialize.

Phuket Elephant Park opened in 2018 to provide a sanctuary for retired and injured elephants that used to work in riding and logging camps.

Our ecotours allowed people to observe our rescued elephants Srinuan, Deelert, Boonsib and Maenoi enjoying their retirement.

Tour visits and your kind donations allowed us to care for our elephants despite constant limited resources and financial struggle.

Unfortunately, the current Covid-19 pandemic has left us no longer able to continue our mission. We are sad to announce that Phuket Elephant Park will close permanently.

Srinuan and Deelert will continue to get good care in their new home. Phuket Elephant Sanctuary has better facilities and a bigger team for the round-the-clock care and treatment Srinuan and Deelert deserve.

Srinuan will be moved to Phuket Elephant Sanctuary on Thursday. Deelert is still in need of medical care and will have to wait for her health to improve to make the move.

We are grateful to Khun Lek Chailert of Save Elephant Foundation and Montri Todtane of Phuket Elephant Sanctuary for facilitating and ensuring the smooth transition of our elephants in their new home.

Please follow Srinuan and Deelert on Phuket Elephant Sanctuary’s Facebook page posts. We will deactivate this page on May 31, 2020.

We will always be grateful for your kind words and actions to aid our elephants.

With great sadness, we announce the loss of our beloved Maenoi. She was 53 years old.

Three days ago, she was struggling to get up and was showing signs of tiredness. We called our vet and Maenoi was immediately given IV drip with medicine. With the help of her dedicated mahout, we continued her medication and supported her weight with a crane and harness. She passed away peacefully this morning at 11:00 am.

Her sudden passing has been extremely difficult for our team, in particular after the pain and grief of losing Boonsib only in February and the uncertainty of the Park after Covid-19.

We will miss Maenoi and we take comfort in knowing that she received the best care, medical attention, and love during her last days at the Park.

Deelert is gaining back her strength. Thanks to our mahouts who make sure her health is sustained with protein-rich diet like bananas and banana stalk.

We are grateful to Srinuan and Maenoi’s mahouts who take turns providing care for Deelert to thrive.
