Full description

Care for gentle elephants at Phuket Elephant Care Park and enjoy a combination of your selected outdoor activities in Phang Nga with the convenience of transfer service from your hotel in Phuket or Phang Nga.

Select how you would like to spend your day outdoors with multiple options. You can enjoy the elephant care experience with white water rafting or the elephant care experience with white water rafting and a 1-hour ATV ride. Alternately, you can enjoy a full day of adventure by choosing the elephant care experience with white water rafting, a 30-minute ATV ride, and a rope bridge and Flying Fox zip line experience.


White Water Rafting is a 5-Kilometer journey along the Song Phraek River with safety training included. If you choose to couple the rafting with the ATV ride, the ATV ride activity takes place after the rafting. If you choose to do the full combo with the rope bridge and Flying Fox zip line, then this will take place after the ATV ride.

Enjoy a traditional Thai food lunch, accompanied by fresh fruit, tea and coffee after the outdoor adventure. Continue to learn all about elephants in elephant sanctuary at the Elephant Care Park. You will be given a traditional Mahout uniform to wear, before receiving an introductory training session on the basics of the park and elephant care.

Once you've completed your training, you will get to meet the elephants. Learn all about these magnificent animals, their behaviors, and history. Help the keepers prepare special food for the elephants and then feed them. Spend one-on-one time with the gentle giants like never before.

After resting up, take the elephants for a mud spa, which cools them down and protects them from parasites. End this amazing experience by bathing the elephants in the river and cleaning the mud off of them. Take another tea or coffee break before being heading back to your hotel at the end of the day.

We did the elephant care and rafting.

Recommend both highly. We did the 5km length rafting but wish we had done the longer one. Anda Adventures has great staff and the lunch served was pretty good. •reviewed by Jeremy – Carrollton, United States

Fantastic experience

Fantastic experience with elephants and staff truly care for them. Remember to give tips directly to elephant staff else tips go to the company and no staff gets awarded. River rafting was great fun, but too many boats on river at the same time. The guides on boats was too childish splashing water on every one and I found it stupid and unnecessary. •reviewed by Bettina – Denmark

If you are keen on rafting - definitely worth it

We are a family of four with two teenage boys. Please don’t take the itinerary on the website literally. Zipline & rope bridge are not included and charged 600 BHT extra p/p. Although the trip is called elephant experience, you actually spend no more than half an hour bathing the elephant at the end, which is a little short, so if you want to spend more time with the elephants, then this is probably not the right trip for you. Also please note that minibus transfer between Patong and Phang Nga is 2,5 hours with light traffic (5 hours in a minibus) With all that said - we still had a brilliant time. Guide was excellent and made sure we had the best experience. Lunch was amazing - the best out of all the trips we’ve had (which were 5 in total) Rafting was great fun and we all loved it. Boys enjoyed ATVs very much. We went onto zip line while others chose to see the waterfall which I heard was great. Driver made a stop to split a two hour transfer each way which provided a welcome break. •reviewed by Elena – United Kingdom

So amazing! So lucky to have seen the baby elephant!

I’m very pleased with our adventure, the drive was more than we expected but we’ll worth it! We were constantly doing something and even the food was fabulous! Elephants are so amazing and this was an expirence I hope to be doing again soon. 100% love the rafting, even with all the other rafters it was still quite a journey. My only complaint is that even though it’s a cruelty free company with no riding the other companies near by so riding and it was a upsetting to see. •reviewed by Anonymous – Canada
