Founded in 2001, Elephant Hills is a unique concept offering interactive experiences with the majestic elephants of Thailand without compromising their welfare. Proud winners of the Thailand Green Excellence Award Winners for the past four years, Elephant Hills pride themselves on being responsible and ethical.
Elephant Hills gives you the chance to meet these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, with two to four-day luxury adventure tours around the stunning Khao Sok National Park. The tours are fully inclusive of activities, accommodation, transfers to and from the camp, all meals and a well-educated, fully-licensed tour guide, and include the unique Elephant Experience - an opportunity to watch and interact with, wash and feed the endangered Asian Elephant.
“The elephants’ sheer size only becomes apparent when you are given the opportunity to wash them - we obviously weren’t doing a good enough job as our elephant decided to fill her trunk with water and take matters into her own hands, completely soaking us in the process. This only added to the enjoyment and fits of laughter! Later we were given the opportunity to feed the elephants. I don’t think I have ever seen so many pineapples, bananas and apples in one place to feed 12 elephants! A truly memorable experience, I feel very fortunate to have been able to travel and spend time here.”

The four-day Nature Safari is perfect for families visiting Elephant Hills. Stay for three nights in luxury tents in The Elephant Camp and try all the activities on offer to give you and your family a real insight into Elephant Hills. This action-packed adventure includes the full Elephant Hills experience of washing, feeding and interacting with an Asian elephant, a thrilling canoe safari down the Sok River, a relaxing venture on a Burmese Junk Boat with lunch on board included and evening activities from dance performances to cooking demonstrations. You’ll also be able to visit a local market and explore the surrounding area in self-paddle canoes. This family experience is not to be missed.
Best for active seniors, the three-day Jungle safari is an excellent adventure for all those who like maximum comfort combined with interesting activities. When choosing this tour, you will have the advantage of staying two nights in a luxury tent at The Elephant Camp with no need to move between two properties. Besides exploring the rainforest just behind The Elephant Camp, you will get to relax at the Rainforest Camp for a day. In the afternoon you will return to your luxury tent to prepare for an evening of entertainment. The fun-filled package includes the unique Elephant Experience and a guided canoe safari, with someone paddling the canoe for you.
The most popular tour for couples allows you to enjoy a stay at the magnificent Rainforest Camp for one night where you can spend time together and relax – far away from Wi-Fi or phone signal. Embark on private canoe trips for hours on end, or simply sit on the front porch of your tent and gaze at the stars in the night sky, and of course, you will get the full Elephant Hills Elephant Experience - feeding, washing and interacting with the animals in an almost untouched environment.
Solo explorers can find their adventure on a Rainforest Nature Safari. During the interactive activities, you will be placed into small groups so it’s easy to make new acquaintances. Over four days you will be able to get to know your fellow travellers and immerse yourself in endless activities. This package is ideal too, as there is no single supplement throughout the summer.
