Spend half a day at the Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary in Krabi and enjoy the unique experience of feeding and bathing rescue elephants saved from a life misery! 

A people-carrier will pick you up from your hotel or the airport and take you to the Ao Nang Elephant Sanctuary for a half-day visit.

You'll meet your guide on site who will tell you all about the sanctuary and its history. You'll then get to meet the elephants and learn how to interact with them. The guide will explain the history of these pachyderms, and how they were rescued from a life of misery and taken to the sanctuary. 

Against a forest and mountain backdrop, you'll prepare snacks for and feed the elephants, before joining them for a mud bath. You'll then take a walk with the elephants to the riverbank to bathe them while you also enjoy a dip. 

Before the tour ends, and you say your goodbyes to the elephants, you'll be able to take group photos with them and enjoy a coffee/tea break served with seasonal fruit. You'll then be driven back to your hotel.
