The Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is the first and only ethical elephant sanctuary in Phuket, despite there being many elephant tourism experiences in Thailand. It takes in elephants that have been abused and overworked in logging and trekking industries. The team clearly really love their elephants, and you can see the personal relationships they have with them on their instagram – there’s even a cute story for each one. It’s a great way to get up close and personal to some amazing animals, whilst also supporting their rehabilitation.
