What You Can Expect

Phuket Half-Day Safari Tour

Phuket Elephant Safari Half-Day Tour

Your friendly driver and local guide will collect you from your Phuket hotel and transport you in the comfort of an air-conditioned four-wheel-drive vehicle to the Chalong highlands. Pay a visit to Siam Safari Elephant Camp and learn about these gentle giants. You’ll see how the young are trained and learn about impressive conservation efforts to protect these animals and how you can help. This elephant camp is the only in southern Thailand to have attained the Thai government standard award. Feed them bananas and sugarcane before climbing atop their towering backs and making your way into the thick forests of the Chalong highlands. You’ll see impressive views of the scenic bay as well as Phi Phi Island.

Next you’ll watch local farmers as they teach you how to tap rubber trees and process coconuts. You’ll learn how spicy jungle curry is made and take a ride on a traditional wooden cart bulled by a working buffalo. Opt for an exciting junk boat ride (additional cost) on the Chalong Bay for even more impressive views for Phuket Island. Your tour ends with a full buffet lunch prepared with local produce and traditional ingredients. You’ll travel back to your hotel with your driver and guide after a memorable day exploring.

This multi-cultural experience was first class all the way from hotel pick up to drop off. Of course the highlight is riding the elephants, but the rice, coconut, tea, farming demonstrations were informative, interactive and fun for all. You will not be disappointed. Includes a great Thai lunch.
