The Koh Chang Elephants are retired Thai
Each Koh Chang Elephant has its own history and is in retirement on Koh Chang. He/she is specially chosen by
Kingphant to join the group. Each elephant has had a hard life, is unique and was always alone. Their life was
lonely and hard work. They have no family and are now together as a new family. They hope to spend a long time in
their new surroundings.
It is now time for peace, relaxing a chat with others and visitors. Meet and greet the elephants at Rock Sand.
They hope to see a lot of visitors to have a chat with and maybe take their picture. As long as the elephants
don't have to work everything is ok.
