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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol
