Now, we might be a little biased, but we thought we would take a closer look at some of the reasons why we love Elephant Hills and why we think you will too.
What is Elephant Hills?
Before looking at some of the things that we love most about this incredible holiday location, we thought we would first introduce Elephant Hills. As Thailand’s first luxury tented jungle camp, Elephant Hills combines the best of an African National Park and a Thai tropical forest, creating a truly stunning experience.
Elephant Hills offers a wide range of two to four-day adventure tours that take in the spectacular beauty of the Khao Sok National Park alongside the incredible wildlife that call it home. Staying in luxury tents each night, Elephant Hills is a wonderful holiday, no matter whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or the ultimate family-friendly trip.
The award-winning tours offer everything you would expect from a luxury hotel room while giving you the chance to discover and explore the jungle.
What we love about Elephant Hills

1) Easy transfers
When going on holiday, having to spend a long time traveling to get to your destination is no fun. At Elephant Hills, we are conveniently located just a few hours from some of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand.
Phuket Airport is just over 140km away, while Khao Lak is less than 90km. This means that you are only a short drive from reaching your glamping spot, giving you more time to explore and enjoy the incredible surroundings.

2) Fun for the whole family
Elephant Hills is an unbeatable experience, no matter whether you are looking for a romantic getaway with your loved one or the trip of a lifetime with your whole family. Our ethos is to welcome open-minded travelers from anywhere in the world.
There is no better way for youngsters to learn about nature and wildlife than seeing it up close and personal. Thailand is a beautiful destination for families, with bustling cities, beautiful beaches, and stunning forests, giving children the chance to explore everything the world has to offer. Here at elephant Hills, we want to help nurture their inquisitive nature, letting them learn and understand more about the world around them.
Our family-friendly resort runs daily fun and educational activities that are guaranteed to keep them entertained for the full generation of your stay. Thanks to the great weather throughout the year, Elephant Hills is as much fun in the summer as it is in the winter.
Of course, Elephant Hills is not just for families. Our luxury glamping trips tour is a stunning way to spend a few days with your loved one. Whether it’s a honeymoon, anniversary, or simply a treat to you both, these tranquil getaways are the perfect romantic break.
3) Ethical elephant experiences
At Elephant Hills, we pride ourselves on providing a truly unique way to see these magnificent animals. Experts believe that elephants and their predecessors have been living in Thailand for nearly 16 million years, so they have a long history with the country.
However, ecotourism can cause these wonderful beasts to be exploited. Here at Elephant Hills, our mission is to provide a truly ethical way to engage with these animals and learn about them. We make every effort we can to reduce our impact on the environment and ensure the highest standards of animal welfare.
There are no elephant rides or performances here. Instead, our animals are free to roam as they wish. We also have our own dedicated veterinarians and mahout (elephant caretakers) to ensure that each of our elephants is looked after.
4) Outdoor activities
We spend so much of our time in front of a screen, but at Elephant Hills, you can put your phone down and discover the wonders of nature. Spending your vacation at Elephant Hills will get you out in the fresh air and taking part in a host of activities that you wouldn’t normally do.
Whether it is exploring the jungle, feeding the elephants, or cruising through mangrove swamps, you will be able to witness the magic of mother nature in real life.
5) Delicious meals
If you are looking to make the most out of your trip, then our Thai cooking classes are the ultimate way to get your tastebuds tingling. Each evening, our talented chefs will help you to unlock the secrets of Thai cooking by providing a unique cooking demonstration, showing you how you can create these delicious meals yourself at home.
From the Som Tam Thai Green Papaya Salad to the mouth-watering Pork BBQ, you will learn an array of new dishes that you can impress your friends with at your next dinner party.
6) Variety of tours
Our mission is to give our visitors a truly memorable holiday. That is why we offer a variety of two to four-day soft adventure tours. Each of these action-packed adventures will showcase a different aspect of the beautiful Khao Sok National Park, and all tour packages are fully inclusive of accommodation, activities, and board.
