Go behind the scenes on a ‘big 5’ safari reserve.

Phinda is one of the great success stories of African wildlife conservation. Unlike most safari reserves, the land is owned by the local community which means everyone works together to protect the wildlife – and everyone benefits from the park’s success.

Nearly two hundred elephants are currently working on Phuket providing visitors with safari trips into the jungles and along the waterways. Almost this entire population of Asian elephants have been trucked to South Thailand from the country's northeastern region where due to a ban on logging ten years ago, the elephant lost their traditional source of support.

Working in tourism has become the primary source of revenue for many of Thailand's 2000 domesticated elephants.

Project Owner:

We do not want to loose sight of perhaps the most significant issue for elephants today across Africa, that of an increasing human population, climate change and an ever-increasing fragmentation of wildlife areas. This is going to be one of the hardest threats to elephants to combat over the next 50 years.

Visit this elephant sanctuary near Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand for an unforgettable experience and join the growing number of people choosing responsible and sustainable elephant tourism.
