Elephant Hills – Thailand’s First Luxury Tented Rainforest Camps

Elephant Hills are Thailand’s first Luxury Tented Jungle Camps, combining the camp idea of African national parks with the Thai tropical forest environment. The Elephant Camp comprises 35 luxurious, tailor-made tents and has successfully been operated since over 10 years. The floating Rainforest Camp, one of the world’s only luxury floating tented camps, was opened in 2011 and is situated on the emerald green waters of Cheow Larn Lake.

Both camps are situated in the Khao Sok National Park in Southern Thailand, approximately two hours apart from each other, close to popular beach destinations like Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi and even Koh Samui. To facilitate travels to Elephant Hills Luxury Tented Camps, all transfers to and from Elephant Hills are included in the tour packages. For further information on this, please read our Transfer Policy.

In addition to transfers, all Elephant Hills tours are fully inclusive of accommodation, activities, meals as well as the services of an English speaking, fully trained, TAT-licensed tour guide.

Due to ethical reasons we do not offer elephant riding at Elephant Hills. Instead, you will get to feed, wash and interact with Asia’s largest land animal during our unique, award-winning Elephant Experience.

Families with children younger than 7 love our 3-day Jungle Safari: 2 nights at The Elephant Camp, including a full-day trip to marvelous Cheow Larn Lake – but usually it’s the ethical Elephant Experience the little ones never forget.



Why choose Elephant Hills?

Elephant Hills is the most responsible and sustainable Soft-Adventure Tour Operator in Southern Thailand. We do not only respect and value our elephants (hence there is no elephant riding at Elephant Hills!), but we also take excellent care of the environment, put great emphasis on recycling and resource-saving as well as cooperating closely with the local community by sourcing staff locally and improving education in the area with our Elephant Hills Children’s Project.

Besides this we pride ourselves on splendid value-for-money tours – many international awards and loads of fantastic press reviews prove the concept right. Come on and find out for yourself!

Elephant Hills is home to 11 female elephants. During our amazing elephant experience, you will interact with the endangered Asian elephants in a unique way. This is your chance to get close with the adorable pachyderms, feel their thick skin and interact with them and their mahouts, the elephant caretakers. Chop, prepare and feed these special creatures one of their daily feeds, watch them play in our giant elephant bathe and use coconut fibers to polish muddy wrinkles back to a majestic grey afterwards. This elephant encounter is one-of-a-kind, an experience you will certainly not forget! Learn more here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Elephant Hills and hope you have a wonderful experience with us here in Southern Thailand!
