Tree Tops Elephant Reserve, Phuket, Thailand
Tree Tops Elephant Reserve is a beautiful elephant sanctuary located on the paradise tourist island of Phuket in Thailand. Tree Tops is the first true sanctuary in Chalong, in the south of Phuket, and opened in October 2019.
Tree Tops CEO, Mr Wallop P. Luengdhama, has spent 35 years in the tourism industry, managing some of the most prestigious hotels in Asia, and was formerly the Executive Director of Phuket Deep Sea Port. With a deep love of elephants since childhood, Mr Wallop was aware of the suffering to elephants in tourism and it was his dream to help them.
Along with Mr Wallop, EARS Asia Founder, Louise Rogerson, is the Project Director of Tree Tops, and has worked with elephants in Asia for 10 years.
Tree Tops rescue and retire working elephants who previously worked exhausting hours in the logging industry, or gave rides and performed in shows for tourist entertainment. Tree Tops is pioneering ethical elephant tourism in southern region of Phuket by offering visitors an opportunity to learn about, love, and respect elephants through their compassionate and gentle approach.
Tree Tops does not allow bathing with elephants as this is not putting the welfare of the elephants first. It is stressful for the elephants, dangerous for guests, unhygienic, and unethical.
Observe elephants as they roam and socialize peacefully throughout the sanctuary, and bathe and play naturally without crowds of people in the water.
