We pride ourselves in creating personalised travel experiences that suit all your preferences and needs.
With this tour you can:
Begin your day with a drive to Siam Safari’s Elephants at Southern Thailand’s Thai government certified elephant camp. Learn first-hand about the camp’s conservation efforts and set off on what is considered Phuket’s best elephant trek, boasting excellent views over Chalong Bay along a 30-minute journey. After your trek, meet the young elephants alongside expert mahouts, and hand feed these gentle giants their favourite fruits!
In the countryside beyond the elephant camp, switch gears for some in-depth insight into traditional rural lifestyles in southern Thailand. Throughout the afternoon, learn how to de-husk a coconut and make coconut milk and oil, see how water buffalo ploughs are used to cultivate rice and sample traditional Thai treats like Thai coffee, tea and desserts. Soon after, set off on a rural adventure with a wooden cart ride, pulled by a wallowing water buffalo! Wrap up your journey with a hands-on demonstration of how to cook Thai curry, and a delicious Thai buffet dinner served at the elephant camp, overlooking the hills of Phuket.
