We had the most wonderful experience here yesterday. Highly recommend visiting. We had a small group and the staff were knowledgeable, took photos for us, and were friendly. The elephants were just beautiful to interact with.

Sarah Harding

The knowledge, care and love for the elephants by the staff is heart warming. These elephants are well looked after. My wife and I visited and found it to be so rewarding. Currently only 2 elephants at the Sanctuary, with the support of us the visitors, many more elephants can enjoy a well deserved pampered life.

At the heart of Southeast Asia’s rich cultural heritage lies our shared history with elephants, symbols of strength and tradition. Our mission at Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary is to provide a sanctuary for elephants retired from labor and entertainment. These noble animals, having served in various capacities, deserve a peaceful environment for rest and rehabilitation.

Our pioneering center in Krabi, Thailand, focuses on reintegrating elephants into natural settings. Building on this success, we’ve launched the Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary, a haven in Cambodia dedicated to elephant care and offering unique, ethical tourism experiences for observing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
