My mother and I love animals. For her birthday, I brought her to visit the rescued elephants at the Phuket Elephant Park. It was a spiritual experience! The park itself is nestled in the virgin Phuket jungle that is surprisingly only 15 minutes driving distance from the airport. The rescued elephants were female ranging in age from 40s-80s. They were rescued from jobs that caused them physical injury from jobs that physically abused them...such as logging, transportation and circus shows. The rescued elephants were friendly and approachable. Under the supervision of the park staff, we could feed, pet and take pictures with the elephants. At this park, the rescued elephants could eat, rest and live without fear of being physically forced to transport logs, people or to perform in circuses. The organization provides a sanctuary for injured, unwanted or abused elephants. Visiting the park was enjoyable and we felt like we were contributing to a good cause with our patronage.
