Location of The Place Your Want To Review

Samui Elephant Sanctuary

Type of Animals Involved


Extent of Contact

Supervised observation and feeding for an adequate length of time but short enough not to cause any stress. I think the elephants in this scenario would happily munch on food for any given amount of time.

Unnatural Behaviour

We were introduced to the elephants and then split into two groups to visit the older elephants and to feed them. We then regrouped to watch other younger elephants bathing which was from a safe distance but hugely enjoyable for all involved!

Instruments of Control or Restraint

Very limited contact by the mahouts, I didn’t see any unnecessary directing & no sticks or bull hooks .

Overall Impression / Feedback

Very happy with what I witnessed the relationship between elephant and mahout looked very relaxed and natural.
