Samui Elephant Sanctuary was the first Sanctuary to be opened. Since opening, it has expanded enabling funds to rescue more elephants for Samui Elephant Sanctuary.
This has only been possible because of the interest and charity funding from tourists and local companies donating funds. Samui Elephant Sanctuary is situated among a natural environment. The sanctuary includes a large swimming pool for the elephants to cool down and wash. A wet mud area for the elephants to cool down and play.
Samui Elephant Sanctuary offers a safe haven for the elephants. They walk around freely, eat, cool down and play. No Chains!
Currently there are 6 elephants the youngest 49 years and oldest 62 years old.
Each elephant has its own working history, but they all where made to work for the tourism Industry for elephant riding, logging and Circus until they are older, then shipped out for elephants trekking.
Now the elephants can find peace to live the rest of their life free!
