Full description
After pickup at your accommodation or greeting the guide at the meeting point, you’ll begin your journey to ElephantsWorld. Situated just outside Kanchanaburi, the environmental conservation organization provides the best care possible to the 30+ elephants in their elephant sanctuary, making sure that they work for the elephants and not the other way around. Once you arrive, you’ll have an introduction and safety briefing before tucking into a buffet lunch. After you’ve filled up on some tasty Thai dishes, you’ll prepare food for the elephants to eat before meeting them and giving taking a mud bath together. You’ll then lead them to the river to rinse off the mud before showering and feeding time. After saying goodbye to your newfound friends, you’ll head to the River Kwai, where you’ll hop on a paddle board and cruise through the water while waiting for the sun to set over the horizon.

Best day ever. Worth the 3 hour drive each way from Bangkok with Artit, he was safe, kind, and a great communicator. At the sanctuary Gogo had so much good information and made sure everyone was fully included. I would recommend this outing
