Trip details

Our Trunks & Tails Rescue Volunteer trip in Thailand is designed to get you volunteering overseas in a safe and fun environment and with a genuine and rewarding purpose. Our expert team and local partners take care of everything you need to start making a positive impact, from volunteer placement to accommodation and ongoing support throughout your entire journey.

Whether you’re doing gap year volunteering or taking a volunteering holiday from work, you’ll arrive in Thailand with the confidence that absolutely everything has been pre-arranged for you. You’ll be able to jump straight into your volunteer duties, relax into the chilled Thai lifestyle and start making new friends with all the logistical details sorted, from airport transfers to accommodation.

Channel all your energy into immersing yourself in your volunteer placement, as well as taking time to get to know the local area. Roam through Chiang Mai’s picturesque cityscapes, swim in Khao Tao’s deep water and try the local cuisine instead of sweating the logistical stuff - that’s exactly why we’re here. Feel confident and proud you are contributing much-needed help to a meaningful cause and save yourself the time, money and even the risk of being stranded in a foreign country by having us on your side. Make your time count on this life-changing opportunity to volunteer in Thailand and arrive home knowing you've made a lasting and positive impact on the lives of stray and mistreated animals.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your days will be filled with structured volunteer duties. You’ll then have the evenings and weekends to explore however you please. As a rough idea, this is the daily schedule you can expect:

Day 1

Once you have touched down at Bangkok International Airport, your pre-arranged transfer will take you straight to your initial volunteer accommodation in Khao Tao, south of Hua Hin.

Trip location

Your first weeks of volunteering will begin in Hua Hin with Street Dog Rescue, followed by the Elephant Rescue Project in Chiang Mai. If you’re volunteering for over 4 weeks, you’ll have the chance to go deeper into the Chiang Mai mountains.

How it works

Make your decision

Choose your trip style and destination, and confirm your spot with a deposit. Then, open your gWorld account and celebrate, the hardest part is over and the fun is about to begin.

We become friends

You’ll be matched with a personal Trip Coordinator who knows all the ins & outs. They’ll guide you through everything we need to do together, so you can leave your worries behind.

Time to go

We’ll get your tickets in-hand and your transfers ready. Then, our in-country team or partner will have everything prepared for your arrival. It’s now time for the real adventure to start.

24/7 support

Never stress, knowing we’re there with you when you need us with ongoing & unlimited local team support and check-ins. And just in case, we’ve got an emergency team on stand-by, 24/7.
