About Us

No riding and no tricks - Unlike many other organisations The Sanctuary does NOT allow elephant riding.

Elephants are our number one priority and we give them the best life we can. Our elephants can roam wherever they want and do whatever they like, it is their home! They are not pets so we will never treat them like pets. We will always aim to do what is in the best interest of the elephants.

Sadly we are one of the very few (the only one?) with this ethos. Elephants -and all animals- deserve so much better!
