About Elephant Hills

Where and who we are

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 nature park. The two camps, The Elephant Camp and the floating Rainforest Camp, are both situated in Khao Sok natural park, part of Southern Thailand’s largest stretch of primary Rainforest. Despite being tucked away in the Green, these camps are easily reachable from popular beach destinations like Phuket, Khao Lak, Khanom, Krabi and even Koh Samui. Best of all: Transfers from and to these destinations are included in the package price!

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. From the moment we were picked up from the airport in Phuket everything was perfect. From the small details of drinks and snacks on car journeys through to the exemplary knowledge and friendliness of all the staff.

Happy Camper

The Rainforest Camp

Opened in January 2011, Elephant Hills Rainforest Camp is the little sister of The Elephant Camp and situated in the center of Cheow Larn Lake in Khao Sok National Park. Rainforest Camp, one of the only floating tented camps in the world, is located on one of Thailand’s most spectacular lakes surrounded by rainforest and towering limestone mountains.

20 Safari Luxury Tents with en-suite bathrooms provide an intimate base for you to explore Southern Thailand’s tropical rainforest. Powered by both wind and solar energy and using responsible waste management, Rainforest Camp is designed to be at one with nature. This has to be the most unique and responsible way to experience the true beauty of Southern Thailand’s endangered Rainforest habitat, home to wild Elephants, Hornbills, rare Asian Oxen (gaurs), various monkey species, a myriad of reptiles, amphibians and floral species.

Khao Sok is home to threatened and endangered animal species, experts estimate the biodiversity to be higher than in the Amazon basin. Its conservation is vital for the ecological balance of Southern Thailand.

A night at Rainforest Camp is certainly one you will not forget too soon.


We are based in one of the world’s oldest rainforest areas and are surrounded by the lush evergreen forests of Khao Sok National Park. Needless to say, nature and its well-being are very important to us and our visitors.
