What to expect

Caring for elephants is one of life's must-do experiences – so this trip is a big tick on the bucket list. Heading to The Seaside Retreat sanctuary, you'll get to feed and bathe these gentle giants. And after making some magical memories, you'll finish off with a delicious Thai lunch, complete with show cooking.

The morning begins with great views over the Andaman Sea as you pass through Khao Lak National Park. Nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty is The Seaside Retreat – Thailand's premier elephant sanctuary. And arriving at its beautiful lagoon setting, you'll waste no time in getting hands on with the elephants.

Learning all about the project's conservation efforts, you'll help to feed, bathe and care for these gentle giants and even get to play in the river with them too. The sanctuary enforces the highest ethical standards and inviting only four small-group visits per day means this is a true safe haven for these magnificent beasts. After a moving experience, you'll round off with a tasty Thai lunch to reflect on your day.
