Had an absolutely brilliant time at Elephant Hills Tented Camp. Stayed for 3 nights from 20th October 2016. From the moment we arrived it was really full on and that applied to the rain as well. Well, it is a rainforest! However, it did not in any way spoil our itinerary. We met some great people and had lots of...

We stayed for two nights. First night was at the river camp. Then on to the lake camp. Both we excellent. But the lake camp was just stunning. The activities arranged were amazing. The Elephant conservation programme was excelled. The kayaking on the river watching the monkeys was amazing. The staff were so attentive and really looked after us.

We did a 3 night stay which I would recommend. The first day having been picked up from Khao Lak hotel at 8am we arrived at the camp, were met by the lovely staff, shown our tents then taken to meet the elephants. We watched them swimming then we helped scrub and throw water on them before preparing their food,...

An incredible 2 nights 3 days spent at Elephant Hills. From our hotel transfers, to our Elephant experience, to our jungle trek, to waking up with a beautiful scenic view right on our patio, it was a lovely lovely stay. We loved how well taken care of we were by our guide who was very knowledgeable about the elephants and...

We had a busy 3 days at the venue, starting with a leisurely canoe ride down the river, followed by an hour washing a feeding the elephants. Day two was spent cruising and kayaking on the huge man made lake, day three a walk through the rain forest for lunch. Each day had the bonus of learning how to make...

Great settting! Views are magnificent! Whilst the accommodation is tented, this is "glamping" at a high level. The tents are spacious and the bathroom area is all mod cons in a stonework finish while still retaining that "safari" feel. We spent three nights here, and the daytime activities were extremely well organised and run by staff who were extremely knowledgeable...

From start to finish this experience has been fantastic. The whole camp is run smoothly and efficiently. The elephants are living a good life here. Each has her own mahout and are not ridden by tourists. Instead we tourists feed and wash them. There are plenty of photos opportunities to record this amazing experience. All meals are included and are...

I can only reiterate what other people have said. I hate boats and canoes and was quite literally terrified of going in the canoe to see the elephants but....... I did it and I'm so glad I did. Finally getting in the canoe and the trip down the river was truly amazing. Our guide Linda was extremely good and very...

What a fabulous two night stay at Elephant Hills. Loved being so up close and personal with the elephants, who are clearly well looked after and loved. Giving them a hose down and preparing their lunch was really fun. Night one at the safari camp was great, met lots of nice people, enjoyed tasty food and slept to the sounds...
