We do not offer elephant rides, but never fear, we have developed 2 truly delightful elephant-friendly experiences that are cruelty free.
Elephant Retirement Experience – help Somboon the elephant retire from a life of hard work. Visit Somboon at a family farm, and learn what it’s like to own an elephant. This is a unique opportunity to feed, bathe, and care for one of nature’s most amazing creatures. Read more about the Elephant Retirement program here.
Elephant Bathing – if you want to spend a shorter amount of time with these gentle giants, this is a chance to see elephants at their most playful – watch out for splashing!
Duration: Retirement Experience – about 2 hours with the elephant, and 20 minutes drive each way. Bathing – about 45 minutes with the elephant, and 15 minutes drive each way.
Tip: both tours include a bathing activity, so bring a change of clothes and a towel!
