Great news: Somboon Legacy Opening
Sah wah dee 🙏 and welcome to SOMBOON LEGACY! We are a newly opened completely HANDS-OFF non-prof
it elephant sanctuary that is located 30 minutes outside of Kanchanaburi and 3 hours from Bangkok. We take care of old, ill, handicapped and rescued elephants. Together with the Legacy River Kwai Resort, we create a space where our elephants can walk freely in nature and aren’t forced to participate in any activities that cause stress or harm to them.
The well-being of our elephants is our top priority! Elephants are wild animals and not for our entertainment. Here at SOMBOON LEGACY, we strongly believe in observing them in their natural habitat and respecting their personal space by not engaging in any physical contact.
Our two beautiful elephants are MALEE and KAMMOON. The sensitive old ladies are over 60 years old and have been a team for over 20 years, gently looking after each other. Somboon was the third of the “Three Musketeers” who passed away a few years back. In honour of her beautiful spirit, we dedicate this organization to her.
It’s time to make a real change, we are going to make a difference.
