What an experience! We stayed for 3 days/2 nights. Time with the elephants was so special. What gentle giants they are. The main camp/tent is lovely - "roughing it" at its best. Food was excellent. The experience at the Rainforest lake camp is unforgettable. Even in the rain it's so special. You must take the hike and check out the...

We stopped of here for 3 days after Bangkok And it lived up to all expectations. Clamping in the Jungle was quite an experience. Living closely with the wildlife while our guide Banana (that's not her real name by the way) explained about the National Park and the elephants. The highlight for me was getting up close and personal with...

We did the 3 day and 2 night Jungle safari package where we stayed at the Elephant camp and also on the floating Jungle camp. The whole experience was amazing, from bathing elephants to canoe tours and jungle treks. The food was of excellent quality and the staff all provided an outstanding level of customer service (especially Meaw our guide)....

Spent 3 days 2 nights at the rainforest camp, what a wonderful place. Delicious food, fabulous experience with the elephants feeding and washing them. Expedition to mangrove forest, canoeing, and a jungle trek in the teeming rain did not deter from our fun. Lunch made for us in the forest while the rain poured down. Our guides Wim and Linda...

Magical experience at Elephant Hills Tented Camp. We took part in the three day, two night adventure; the elephant experience was outstanding, we learnt about the elephants, washed & fed them. Our guide 'Banana' was fantastic, with a great sense of humour and very good English.

We arrived at Elephant Hills after being collected by from Phuket Airport after an overnight flight from Dubai. We were pretty tired but the next few days were full on. We had a welcome drink and a lovely lunch and then we met the elephants. It was magical. They are so relaxed in their environment and clearly well looked after....

Get Bua as your guide! She's the best. They made special food to accommodate my food allergy and made sure I knew what I could or couldn't eat. Everything was very well organized. The lake is amazing and the elephants are fun. Worth every penny.

Fantastic option suitable for anyone who loves elephants. This is camping but with mod cons. "Glamping" is the best way to describe the accommodation. Very unique. Our guide "Banana" was simply fantastic. The floating tents were beautiful. No internet here but good to get out in nature and switch off. Highly Recommend.

Furthermore, the resort offers 2-5-day soft adventure tours, including kayaking, lake explorations, mangrove expeditions, jungle treks and the unique Elephant Hills elephant experience. Here you get to wash, feed and interact with Asia's largest land animal in a sustainable and fun way.
