My partner and I stayed for one of the 3 days/2nights packages and had the opportunity to stay at both camps. The camps are well maintained and the 'tents' really are amazing with running hot and cold water and solar electricity. The staff organise the itineraries very well and are both friendly and helpful. There is a lot to do at Elephant Hills - interact with elephants, canoeing, kayaking, rain forecast walks (not for the faint-hearted!), swimming in the lakes etc.
The 'tents' themselves are really an experience. If you're after a unique experience that involves the outdoors but still want a touch of comfort at the end of the day when you come back to camp, then this is it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Elephant Hills combines the African Safari tent camp idea with the breathtakingly beautiful environment of Khao Sok in Southern Thailand. Furthermore, the resort offers 2-5-day soft adventure tours, including kayaking, lake explorations, mangrove expeditions, jungle treks and the unique Elephant Hills elephant experience. Here you get to wash, feed and interact with Asia's largest land animal in a sustainable and fun way. Elephant Hills does not offer Elephant riding out of respect towards the elephants. ... more less
