Elephant Hills – Elephant Park Thailand

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 Lake 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 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.

Help To Feed The Elephants

Chop, prepare and feed these special creatures one of their daily feeds. This elephant encounter is one-of-a-kind, an experience you will certainly not forget! Learn more about our elephant park.

We can guarantee that our animal welfare is our top priority at our elephant park. Our elephants are treated with respect.

Elephant Hills has achieved a 100% rating for its animal welfare from Global Spirit –  Animals in Tourism auditing. We are the first worldwide animal attraction and elephant park to reach a 100% rating within the two-week audit period.

Don’t hesitate to book…

Amazing from start to finish. The experience was so well planned and delivered, with great guides (Tam thankyou), food, and accommodation. Health and safety was taken very seriously, and the staff could not have been nicer.

Whilst there we had a significant issue arise. This was resolved quickly and with integrity – even in the UK companies would have tried to wriggle out of sorting.

Just brilliant.

Amazing experience

It was difficult parsing through all the different tour options in Khao Sok but I have no regrets booking Elephant hills. We did the 3d2n package and it was a great combination of activities and down time. Our guide Tam was incredibly friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable. The convenient pickup and drop off made it easy to fit this into our trip (our tour finished on the last day at the Cheow Lan Lake port around 1330 and we were at Surat Thani airport before 1500, for reference).

All meals were also surprisingly tasty. The tour did include a half day hike and half day canoe excursion where we saw a surprising amount of wildlife, but for the true outdoors enthusiasts a different tour would be recommended. Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

Fantastic Experience

We loved this experience OK it was very hot but well worth the sweat! The interaction with elephants was amazing they were so relaxing and gentle. We stroked and fed them. We stayed the first night at the elephant camp and second at the lake camp. The lake camp was our favourite so quiet and no one else there. We were only a small group of 18 so really lucky as usually busier. The food was great and our guide Tam was excellent very helpful and attentive. Had a lovely group of people and a trip we will never forget.

Absolutely amazing, highlight of our trip!

Absolutely Amazing! It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Thailand, everything was really well organized and thoroughly enjoyable. Tor who was our guide for the 3 days was awesome, very knowledgeable, friendly and just a top guy! My favourite part was waking up at the lake hearing all of the wildlife in the morning and you could hear the monkeys calling for each other. I would 100% recommend going to Elephant Hills!
