Elephant Hills is in a stunning location and is run fantastically by dedicated staff. The experience of feeding and washing these amazing animals in such breathtaking scenery was incredible. The most special part of our stay was the night at the Rainforest Camp where we took out a kayak for an early morning paddle and marvelled at the stillness around us, with just the animals and birds for company. The food was excellent and plentiful - much attention was paid to my gluten free diet. This place is special, make sure you put it on your list.

We actually visited here November 2018. The scenery superb. The staff ....... and guides, the most friendly and knowledgeable people you could ever meet. The kayak along the river and then the afternoon with the elephants is possibly the greatest day you’ll ever remember. I could have given up work to spend all day just washing and feeding them AMAZING.

Very organised tour. We had a night at the main camp, then a night on the lake. Staff were very accommodating to my partner who had an injured foot, so they helped him getting in and out of boats, plus were good with his special dietary requirement, making separate dishes for him. Overall I feel it's quite expensive for what you get, but glad we did it and good to combine touring and nature activities rather than just Bangkok and beaches.

I have always been a camper, my back packing days are over but the kids wanted to see elephants, I wanted a national park and lots of flora and fauna. We all won, we visited both properties and really enjoyed the soft excursions, no heavy duty here. The only downside come from the National Park Authority where you need to wear a life jacket to swim in the lake. That is taking things a bit too extreme. The food was varied and simple. I loved the local dance troop performing. The guides are well informed and friendly.

Hi Sherry, Thank you for giving us a 5- star rating and taking the time to review. We are glad to hear you loved our glamping experience and even more the activities we offer during your stay. As we do operate our tours from a National Park we do have to follow their guidelines of wearing a life jacket for personal safety. We hope to welcome you to the camp again in the near future. Kind Regards, The Elephant Hills Team

Absolutely amazing experience, loved every minute of our stay. The tents are very nice and at night you can here all the animals around you. The elephant experience is one I will never forget, I loved every minute of being around these amazing animals. The rainforest camp was lovely and the hike through the rainforest is must do but it is very tiring and hot! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend going and I would love to go back one day.
