Elephant Hills are Thailand’s first Luxury Tented Jungle Camps, combining the camp idea of African national parks with the Thai tropical forest environment of our elephant park. We offer 2-4 day nature soft adventure tours in and around the stunningly beautiful Khao Sok national park area with luxury tents for nighttime accommodations.
The Elephant Camp comprises tailor-made luxury tents and has successfully been operated for over 10 years, becoming a popular destination for family vacations. 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 Lan Lake.
Both camps are situated in the Khao Sok National Park in Southern Thailand, approximately two hours apart from each other, close to famous beaches and honeymoon destinations like Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi, and Koh Samui. To facilitate travels to Elephant Hills Luxury Tented Camps and elephant park, all transfers to and from Elephant Hills are included in the tour packages and honeymoon packages. For further information on this, please read our Transfer Policy.
In addition to transfers, all Elephant Hills tours are fully inclusive of luxury tents accommodation, activities, and 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 and interact with Asia’s largest land animal during our unique, award-winning Elephant Experience at our elephant park.
When visiting Elephant Hills’ nature park, please also consider participating in our Children’s Project. Hundreds of local schoolchildren will be absolutely delighted if you do.

Elephant Hills Reviews
“We have just returned from a trip to Thailand this Oct/Nov 2022, Elephant Hills was certainly the highlight, the tents were beautiful and clean, we did not find one bug, there were more in our hotel prior. The trips are organised and absolutely fantastic full of adventure and beauty. Meeting the elephants was obviously fabulous too, what a wonderful experience. The thing that surprised us the most was the food, every meal was absolutely delicious, particularly the ones cooked in front of us on the trips each day! Just wow! If you visit Thailand you must visit this wonderful place!”
Wow what a place! You won’t be disappointed!
“The most amazing experience! From the pick up to the food to every part of the itinerary the attention to detail is fantastic! Our guide Tor was so brilliant. We could not have asked for more it exceeded every expectation. Take time to just take in the surroundings it really is so special. Thank you for a wonderful few days.”
A definite must if visiting Thailand
“Amazing scenery, excursions, and staff all make this a must-try experience in Thailand. The staff (in particular the excursion guides, our 2 were named Tor and Nong and were amazing) are phenomenal and really go out of their way to make you feel like part of the family. The excursions are all once-in-a-lifetime experiences. A definite must if visiting Thailand.”
Cannot fault a thing!
“This was truly a memorable family experience! Everything from the activities, to the guides to the food to the accommodation, it was difficult to fault anything. The elephant experience was obviously a highlight, as it was unique to get so close to these magnificent animals and interact with them. One cannot really describe all the activities in words as it does not do the actual experience any justice. We did not want to leave, even though we stayed for the 3-night package.”

Elephant Welfare Is VERY Important
Elephant Hills is home to the well-known, respected elephants of Thailand. During our amazing elephant experience, you will have the opportunity to get a look at their daily lives and interact with the endangered Asian elephants in a unique way. This is your chance to get close to 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 afterward. This elephant encounter is one-of-a-kind, an experience you will certainly not forget! Learn more about our elephant park.
