Saturday 18 May was a historic day for southern Thailand. Two Asian elephants took to the highway for one last long and arduous walk, from the south to the north of Koh Samui Island. Leaving just before sunset as the temperatures began to fall; two elephants that have spent their entire lives in captivity and chains embarked on their journey to a new and ethical home. With 20km covered in just over nine hours, guided by the full moon, Somboon and Sri Nuan finally reached Samui Elephant Haven. Kind local street vendors provided kilos of bananas and watermelon to the elephants on their trek to freedom.
