About Program

Experience the life of a mahout, or elephant caretaker. Whether it’s taking the elephants out for their morning walk through the jungle or feeding them bananas picked off a nearby tree, you’ll learn firsthand how elephant conservation and tourism intertwine in present day Thailand.

Venture into Phuket’s bustling street markets, experience village life on Koh Yao Noi Island, step inside shimmering Buddhist temples and attune to the slow pace of life in the South. Relax under the swaying palms of a beachfront resort of the majestic Phi Phi Islands - a magical place your children will love!

Your Purpose: Tucked in the lush green mountains of Phuket Island lies a sanctuary for sick, injured and elderly elephants. Designed to mimic their native habitat, elephants roam free over acres of rainforest and cool bathing pools. Lend a hand to the manhouts and staff of the sanctuary, including gathering food and feeding the elephants, maintaining their enclosures, and more.
