Supporting ethical elephant tourism and helping to make a difference!
Khwan Beach Resort is proud to support the first elephant sanctuary to Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. Set on 10 acres of forest land, they offer a retirement home for elephants who have worked exhausting hours in the logging and tourism industries. Feed, walk with, and observe their gentle giants as they roam, socialise, bathe and enjoy a peaceful life that they so deserve.
Their concept of elephant care and welfare is inspired and supported by Lek Chailert, world renowned elephant conservationist, the founder of Save Elephant Foundation and world famous Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. Lek is at the forefront of ethical elephant tourism both in Thailand and throughout Asia, which is seeing a growing demand for elephant camps to transition from a trekking to sanctuary model under the Save Elephant Foundation’s ‘Saddle Off’ program.
They offer tours that educate about the importance of these phenomenal, majestic giants, with a unique opportunity to feed, walk with, and observe our elephants as they forage, socialize, and play in their fabulous purpose built pool.
The elephants in their care have previously endured a hard life working long hours for the tourism entertainment or logging industries; a striking contrast to the happy and peaceful lives they are now living, with the dignity and respect they deserve.
