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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
