Travel Experience

The Kulen Elephant Forest is a haven where retired elephants can interact freely, and are treated with the greatest care and attention. At the reserve, there are no tricks, no riding, and the elephants now roam and socialize unburdened, within 530 acres of lush forest.

Responsibility

The Kulen Elephant Forest is a haven where retired elephants can interact freely, and are treated with the greatest care and attention. At the reserve, there are no tricks, no riding, and the elephants now roam and socialize unburdened, within 530 acres of lush forest. The mission is to provide our residents with a happy and comfortable retirement but also to offer a fun, educational approach to elephant conservation and contribute as much as possible to preserving the remaining elephants of Cambodia. A visit to the Kulen Elephant Forest will not only help the elephants of Angkor but all elephants in Cambodia through the KEF’s longer-term objectives, for we believe in the power of education and tourism as drivers for conservation.

Business Case

Every single visit actually helps the animals by coming here because all the profit from the cost of the tours is reinvested back into the sanctuary. Visitors will get a chance to learn the very real implications of elephant conservation in Cambodia. We offer an ethical, pragmatic and scientific rationale to the conservation debate, a message that we hope our visitors will understand and spread.
