Elephants & Mahouts

Tangthai & Ton

Tangthai & Ton

At age 9, Tangthai is our youngest female elephant here at the Park. She is wonderfully cheeky but very gentle with our visitors and is great with children. She loves to be fed bananas, splash around in the pool and generally seek as much attention as possible! Ton, our youngest Mahout is constantly pretending to be an elephant and gallivanting around the Park with her!

Duong-Jai & Por

Duong-Jai & Por

Duong-Jai is wonderfully sociable with our visitors and loves to interact with them. She is 33 years old and has a very healthy appetite and therefore takes care of most of the gardening in the Park. She is looked after by mahout Por.

Wanna & M

Wanna & M

Wanna is easily distinguishable because she is blind in one eye – we rescued her from being overworked in the logging industry. Being 66 years old, she is also the oldest elephant here at the Park. But this does not stop her from enjoying Park-life – if you come and meet her, she would love you to feed her some bananas and pat her trunk! Wanna is experienced and well-behaved and probably thinks she doesn’t even need a Mahout, but M accompanies her at all times anyway!

Bai-Ngern & Poki

Bai-Ngern & Poki

Bai-Ngern, a ten year old female, is the newest addition to the park. Phang Nga Elephant Park purchased her in October 2016 and she is now officially part of the family. Her mahout Poki, at only 15 years of age is our youngest mahout.
Bai-Ngern (pronounced Baian) has immediately made best friends with Tangthai and the two can always be seen playing together.

Choosri & Tye

Choosri & Tye

45 year old Choosri is extremely calm and content and loves to meet new people every day. She is one of our most beautiful elephants and we are very proud of how well behaved and gentle she is. Tye took his father’s job in 2015 as her mahout.

Saaw-Eitd & F

Saaw-Eitd & F

Saaw-Eitd is a 57 year old female. Her mahout, F, is our head mahouts son in law. F‘s father used to be Saaw-Eitd’s mahout and now F has taken over.
Saaw-Eitd, despite her age is still very well on her feet. She is the definition of a gentle giant and our visitors are often in awe of majestic she is.

Sao-Nui & P’Nui

Sao-Nui & P’Nui

48 year old Sao-Nui is the perfect elephant to be around on a hot day due to her love of water, coupling with a need to spray everyone in the vicinity. As their similar names suggest they are a bit of a double act and great fun to be around.

Baramee & Ti

Baramee & Ti

Baramee is our handsome and mischievous teenager, aged 11. He is constantly getting up to no good and is besotted with Tangthai – they are inseparable and we hope they might have a baby together one day. His mahout, Ti, is also a teenager and so they have a mutual respect and understanding.

Dao-Rueng, Tanwaa & Ma

Dao-Rueng, Tanwaa & Ma

32 year old Dao-Rueng is the gorgeous mother of our little baby Tanwaa, who was born in December 2015 (Tanwaa means “December” in Thai). She is very patient and accepting of naughty Tanwaa and his playful ways and is very happy for him to meet, play and bathe with our visitors. Tanwaa will play with anything and everything, from a football, to trying to steal the water hose, to climbing into the wheelbarrow! Ma has been Dao-Rueng’s proud mahout since 2010, and they are both extremely well looked after by him.
