Family volunteering in Thailand at an elephant sanctuary

Immerse yourselves in an elephant lover’s paradise on your family holiday. Spend a week or more working closely with rescued Asian elephants in a sanctuary on the Malay Peninsula in Thailand. Rescued from street begging and tourist entertainments, these elephants need your help to rehabilitate and recover.

Dates: This project runs throughout the year. Arrival day is a Sunday.

Suitability: To work with elephants, children need to be a minimum of 14 years of age at the point of departure. You will need to be happy to get stuck in and mucky, prepared to live in rustic accommodation and be open to a very different experience.
