Have an unforgettable adventure exploring Phuket's tropical jungle. Ride on an elephant with an experienced mahout (elephant driver), visit a local farmyard, experience a traditional buffalo-cart ride, see how rubber trees are tapped, and enjoy a sumptuous Thai buffet meal.
Depart from your centrally located Phuket hotel and travel to the Siam Safari—a safe haven for elephants. See these majestic creatures up-close and encounter baby elephants in their enclosure, where you may touch and feed them with fruits (at own expense).
Start your adventure into the rural jungle by riding on an elephant with your experienced mahout, who guides you through the lush Chalong highlands. As you ride, learn more about these majestic animals, the local wildlife, and the captivating fauna and flora. Marvel at spectacular views over Chalong Bay and spot the beautiful Phi Phi Islands in the distance.
Next, stop by a local farmyard and see how buffalo plough the rice fields. Interact with the friendly villagers and learn how to harvest the rice as the locals do before going on a traditional buffalo-cart ride. Continue your journey to a rubber and coconut plantation where you witness how rubber trees are tapped to extract natural rubber latex and learn how coconuts are processed to make coconut milk and oil.
Return to the Siam Safari and indulge yourself with a delicious traditional Thai buffet lunch or dinner (depending on your tour), before you journey back to your hotel.
