Elephant Valley Travel Solutions

Welcome to the newly launched, Elephant Valley Travel Solutions (EVTS).  Although our main focus will always be the elephants, we like to look for new ways to bring much needed extra revenue to our sanctuary so we can continue giving the creatures in our care the best life possible.

As we have a full tour agency license issued by the Tourism Authority of Thailand  and are situated in one of Thailands most beautiful provinces, it makes sense for us offer bespoke full day options that combine time at the sanctuary with seeing some of the local attractions.

Our focus is on ethical activities that benefit the local community and promote responsible tourism rather than exploitation. Giving back to the animals and people that surround us are at the core of our ethos.

Temples Tour + Elephant Lovers (A self-guided tour with an English speaking driver)

2500 THB, all inclusive of transportation, food and Temple entrance fees/donations (2 pax minimum)

We currently have a full day tour option combining a morning tour of upto 3 temples, a ride on a longtail boat along the Kok river and the Elephants Lovers (half day afternoon) featuring lunch and all afternoon at the sanctuary.

Starting with a visit to to the stunning new Blue Temple, a long-tail boat ride on the Kok river to the ancient Buddha cave and then on to the world famous White Temple.  This is followed by lunch at the Elephant Valley watching elephants graze in the fields followed by a guided tour of the sanctuary learning all about our rehabilitative work.

The proposed itinerary is :

Pick up 8.30am

Blue Temple

Bhudda Cave + boat ride on Kok River

White Temple

Arriving at midday for Elephants Lovers visit program with lunch at the sanctuary

Departure from the sanctuary at around 4.30pm.

To keep the day cost efficient, we have designed it as a “self- guiding tour” as the temples don’t really require a tour guide, but they’ll be an English speaking driver to assistant you and everyone else in your group.   If you are a solo-travel and would like to join the temple tour let us know some possible dates so we can try and fit you in with a group.

Please let us know the places you would like to visit and we can put together a full day itinerary, including sanctuary time,  for you to consider.
