Ever dreamt of playing in a mud bath with a baby elephant?

If so, you’re in the right place…

Welcome to Camp Elephant, Camp Thailand’s most exclusive camp location!

Experience Thailand in it’s full authenticity on this Asian Adventure, combining the perfect balance of amazing tours and activities, community projects, and of course… Elephant Conservation.

Write the first chapter of your travel story in the midst of bustling Bangkok, immerse yourself in culture then prepare to PARTY HARD on the world-renowned party strip – KhaoSan Road.

From the bright lights of Bangkok, travel to Thailand’s spiritual hotbed: Singburi. A region where temples cascade through the lush scenery, and night markets provide an opportunity to mingle with merchants under the moon’s mystical gaze.

Enter the realm of education and travel to local schools, during which time you’ll teach local children – an activity guaranteed to instil excitement.

Kanchanaburi will be next on the travel itinerary and the first opportunity of many to meet and greet Thailand’s most gentle giants. From here, prepare to head to the beachside town of Hua Hin – take a dip in cascading crystal blue waters and relax on a bed of golden sands… Hua Hin beach awaits your arrival.

Two further Elephant sanctuary visits allow you to get up close and personal, bathing, feeding and taking mud-baths with these amazing creatures. Learn about the Elephants long history, battle with the tourism industry and the background to why the work we do is SO important!

Your Elephant Adventure promises to be a travel extravaganza unlike any other.
