When we first started planning our time in Thailand, visiting an elephant sanctuary was on the top of the list. We wanted to ensure that we visited a sanctuary that cares for the elephants, does good by them, and protects them from the growing tourism industry. We weren’t looking ride or bath the elephants, we simply wanted to see them in a more natural state. When we found Samui Elephant Haven, we more than got what we wanted.
Surat Thani, THAILAND – In the wild, elephants don’t balance on stools, perform headstands or play football. They live together, in family herds. But in the elephant riding tourism industry, baby elephants’ lives begin by being ripped away from their mothers. They live out their next 3-9 days of life in a cage where standing is scarcely achievable. In this time, they are starved, sleep-deprived and beaten with bullhooks until they subdue to their abusers.
After months of deliberations and discussions, Samui Elephant Haven named a little boy-elephant today! Even before he arrived at the Haven, the little chap had quite a journey. Somboon, his beautifully calm mother walked from one side of Koh Samui to the other to be greeted by a magnificent herd of elephants with trumpets, entwining trunks, and a memorable reunion with her daughter.
