See the world and give something back at the same time, with one of these unforgettable volunteering holidays

By Sarah Dawson

1/10 Elephant Volunteer Project, Thailand

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Northern Thailand, this volunteer-run sanctuary offers a chance for retired trekking and tourist-ride elephants to live out the rest of their lives free, with other fellow retired elephants. A volunteer holiday here is a real hands-on experience, where adults and older children can help walk, bathe and feed the elephants, while learning about these majestic animals and their welfare. There’s also the opportunity to get involved in community projects, like planting trees and helping to repair local houses.

Best for: Adults and children over 10 years old

Price: From £480 per adult and £360 per child for one week
