About Program

Live like a local on a remote Cambodian elephant sanctuary far from the tourist trail. Each day you will wake to the symphony of trumpeting elephants and jungle noise. This project will give you stories to tell for years to come.

You will help rehabilitate the elephants by taking them on daily walks through the jungle, washing and scrubbing them, planting nutritional elephant food, harvesting ripe produce, preparing their meals and feeding them. As well as the elephants you will be spending time with other animals on the sanctuary, such as, monkeys, gibbons and even some rescued dogs as they need attention and care too.

You'll sleep in thatched bungalows on the elephant sanctuary and visit a rural Cambodian school where you will assist in teaching the children. During the evenings you can learn to cook traditional Cambodian dishes. If you have ever wanted to work with Cambodian elephants then this project is for you.

Highly recommended

I strongly recommend this program! It was undoubtedly the most amazing experience of my life I wouldn't have traded such an amazing experience for the world!

The staff were so accommodating with everything and always made me feel safe. The time that I spent in the village was the most inspiring and life changing experience I got to see the real side of how the families in Cambodia live as opposed to the photos and videos that are online. All of the people we worked with were such great people who were so willing and happy to help out! I will definitely be doing more of these programs!

Best Experience Ever!

I thoroughly enjoyed this volunteer experience. I especially liked how this program catered to both village work helping people and an exotic animal experience. Being able to help the villagers and meet the Cambodians was amazing. The people there are the nicest people you will ever meet. Furthermore, hanging out with elephants is cool too! Not to mention, having a super awesome group leader, is a huge plus for the whole experience. I learned so much from this experience from the other volunteers, the group leader and the Cambodians who live there. If I could, I would do it again!
