Tour Description

Krabi Elephant Care House has been set up as a retirement home for elephants. On the edge of the Phanom Bencha National Park is run by a group of local people who have worked with elephants for generations, previously using them for forestry work and then more recently for tourism offering elephant treks and bathing experiences.

They decided to set up the Care house as a place where the older elephants, no longer used for working can enjoy their retirement in peace and give the opportunity for visitors to get to see elephants in a natural setting. The area is 200 rai of rubber and palm plantation well away from the sound of traffic or any other human activity, rivers run through the property and itís a huge area for them to enjoy.

At the moment, they just have three elephants at the Care House: Sau Oy, Sao Nui and Sao Id. They are all over 60 years of age and seem to be very much enjoying their retirement and may well live for another 30 years or more, and despite their age, they are playful and you can just tell that they are happy.

All the staff are real elephant lovers and you can instantly tell that these lucky few elephants are really well cared for. As time goes on, they are hoping that many other elephants will be brought to the Care House when they are no longer being used for trekking or other work.

At Krabitrek, we are all real animal lovers, this place really is fantastic. Krabitrek only offer this elephant trip and also the elephant trek and bathing experience that is offered by the same group of people. Supporting the Elephant Care House will allow them in time to move all their elephants away from the treks and into the Care House.

Krabitrek do not offer any other elephant rides at any of the other camps or any other animal exploitations like monkey shows etc etc. We are committed to improve the lives of all animals in Krabi.
