We built our two week visit to Thailand around a visit to Elephant Hills as wanted something special for our 10th wedding anniversary, and we were not disappointed. We did one night in the tented camp and one on the lake. Food good, accommodation amazing with views to die for!

The staff were exceptional and our guide Kong went above and beyond adding humour and knowledge in abundance. No air con but the breezes on the lake and fan in the tented camp more than adequate.

We did the elephant trip on our first day, spent roughly 2 hours with them scrubbing them and feeding. The we did a kayak down the river (very relaxing afternoon).

Day 2 saw us take a visit to the dam on the way to the lake camp, a long tailed boat ride on the lake before arriving into camp in time for lunch. Afternoon gave option for staying in camp and enjoying the lake or the jungle trek. We both opted for the trek which was not easy as steep and hot, but not too strenuous and guide will give you ad many breaks as needed and the views and cave make it worth while.

Day 3 was a morning kayak around the lake nature spotting then back on the long tail to get onward buses. Be aware, whilst at the lake you are completely "off grid", but this is wonderful. We left the lake with heavy hearts as would have loved to have stayed longer.

Me and my boyfriend had the best time. It’s the perfect way to explore the nature side of Thailand for people who are not all too adventurous and like comfort. Even more so if you’re lucky enough to get the fantastic tour guide Tony, who went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy, comfortable, hydrated, safe. Also he was very focused on making sure no one would miss anything exciting to see while we were on our way - a monkey we were passing by in our kayak, or a tarantula leg somewhere in it’s deep dug whole. Me and my boyfriend also tend to forget taking pictures, but not Tony. He made sure everyone had at least a couple of cool fotos. He was also super chill about people skipping an activity here and there. Even though we did it all, I like the feeling that it’s up to me and not having someone forcing me to participate. It was a great easygoing experience while still having the sense that you had a true adventure - we booked the jungle lake safari (3 days, 2 nights) and both the camp on and off the water was great. I highly recommend it - even if you spend the rest of your Thailand vacation on the beach, this safari will truly give you the feeling you’ve been in a different world.

A super three day trip, very well organised and very educational.
We particularly went to see the elephants, which we did on day one, to wash and feed them is a great experience, one that will stay with you forever. Over the other two days we did some great stuff, longboats, canoes, swimming on various visits and even a jungle trek. The camp was great, food superb and the tents like home from home. Our guide for the 3 days, Linda, was very knowledgeable, helpful and kept us in line in this unusual place.

Room Tip: The water based tents are 1 hour away from the main camp, check your booking if you want to stay in one.

Me and my Friend stayed 2night/3 days on an excursion with Elephant Hills. The whole experience was amazing, educational and fun. The first day we visited the elephant sanctuary, where we gave them their dinner and medicine, washed and learned about the them. The rest of the time was spent traveling through the park and "camping" the tents are luxury accommodations, on the lake. The cave walk was hard but fantastic and seeing the monkeys early in the morning was fab.. so glad we added this to our trip
