Elephant Hills is a luxurious tented camp in Southern Thailand, offering superb multi-day adventure tours within the Khao Sok National Park, thought to contain over 5% of all animal species in the world. It enjoys a peaceful and somewhat secluded location, though popular beachside towns and cities such as Krabi and Phuket are within easy reach.

The accommodation comprises 35 stylish and upmarket tents; all of them are designed to offer plenty of space and come with amenities such as tea and coffee making facilities, a shower with both hot and cold water, a fan and a hairdryer. Mosquitoes and other insects are prevalent in the area, though all of the tents offer sufficient protection against them. Furniture is made by local craftsmen, with only locally sourced materials used.

The highlight of staying at Elephant Hills Camp is undoubtedly the ‘Elephant Experience’, which allows guests to not only see elephants up close, but also to feed, wash and interact with them. Some of the many exciting activities in and around the camp include canoeing, hiking, cooking demonstrations, dance shows, trips to local markets, wildlife spotting and exploring a lake in a traditional long-tail boat.

Facilities at the campsite are plentiful, so guests will find plenty to do in between activities. There’s a swimming pool with spectacular views, a small fish pond and a herb garden with peppers, pineapples, chilies and more. All meals are served in the open-air restaurant and drinks are served at the bar. Newspapers and maps are provided and there’s a souvenir shop selling mementos and trinkets.

Children must be at least four years old to stay at Elephant Hills Camp and take part in the adventures on offer and parents may wish to consider the ‘Rainforest Nature Safari’ which is tailored to families with young children. Some visitors might wish to combine their visit with a stay at the sister camp Elephant Hills Rainforest Camp – but note that children must be at least seven years of age to stay in this somewhat more remote accommodation. Due to the camp’s open location within a national park, parents should keep a close eye on their children at all times.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
