PROVIDING A SAFE HAVEN FOR RESCUED ELEPHANTS ON KOH SAMUI
Samui Elephant Haven is a beautiful and ethical nature reserve for elephants rescued from exploitation. Practices include trekking, performing in circuses, logging and street begging.
Lush jungles envelop Samui Elephant Haven which sits proudly atop undulating hills and commands impressive views over the Gulf of Siam and Koh Phangan island. The Haven is home to a remarkable herd of Asian elephants.
Founder of Samui Elephant Haven, Maew Suriya, ensures that the elephants, the largest land mammals, are now free to roam through the reserve and can express their natural instincts through play and interaction by foraging for native plants and bathing in the various pools throughout the 60 rai parkland.
Visitors choosing Samui Elephant Haven will have meaningful encounters with these magnificent creatures, learn about their individual histories and traits while supporting ethical tourism. Guests will also have the opportunity of meeting a herd of beautiful cows, some clucking chickens and the Haven’s rescue dogs.
