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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
