More people are looking to spend their holidays in an ethically responsible way that has respect for nature, animals and the local culture.  

The focus here at Somboon Legacy Foundation is exactly that.

We are a non-profit hands-off elephants’ sanctuary, located 25 km outside of the city of Kanchanaburi and 134 km from Bangkok.

We care for the old, ill, handicapped and rescued elephants.

We are proud to act on our words:  Elephants are not used for our entertainment, we respect them and treat them with the care they deserve.


 Discover Somboon Legacy Foundation


Visit us and explore this unique non-profit hands-off sanctuary and our one of a kind interactive elephant museum for young and old. 

Our elephants walk freely in nature, grazing as they would in the wild, foraging on greens in this lush tropical environment. They are not forced to participate in any activities that could cause stress to them.

Observe and learn about our elephants, their history and help us preserve their legacy.    Today, Thailand’s wild & captive elephant populations are struggling and they need your help. Our goal is to educate and inspire our guests to develop a true respect for the worlds' biggest land mammal & our planet.


The time to help these animals is running out; we have to join forces to take care of wildlife for your children and grandchildren, so they can have the same experience in the future as you will have here.

Be an example for the rest of the world by enjoying captive elephants in an ethical way.


                Join us on this exciting journey,                                   let elephants simply be... elephants
