Day 6 – Elephant Retirement Park
The Elephant Retirement Park was established to create a haven for retired elephants. The camps founder, Adulwit khamya, better known as Noi, created a sustainable habitat for the elephants to live in a safe and natural environment, free from profiteering and neglect. At the elephant park, family units are never separated and herbal medicines are used to keep the animals healthy, so they can enjoy a better quality of life. The Elephant Retirement Park has a strict policy in place to ensure the elephants are treated with care, therefore the park offers no riding. The sole focus of the park is to promote the well-being of retired elephants. Visitors and volunteers to the park can expect an enjoyable and rewarding experience working with the local Mahout’s to care for these majestic symbols of strength and peace.
