Elephant Hills is one of the world's most exciting and luxury tented jungle camps. Elephant Hills and the Rainforest Camp are located in the largest area of rainforest in the southern part of Thailand - Among the Khao Sok, Klong Phanom and Sri Pang Nga National Parks. Our Camps are close to and easily acessible from the famous beach destinations in southern Thailand, Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi and Surat Thani (for Koh Samui). It takes approximately 2.5 hours to drive from Phuket, Krabi.

Welcome to Elephant Hills Camp

The canoes are very stable and safe; life jackets are provided as well as a local river guide to paddle the canoe. Drift along the jungle river passing Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered with exotic tropical vegetation. Sometimes hornbill birds can be seen flying high overhead or reptiles basking in the sun on the riverbanks. From the canoe you can experience some of the last areas of primary rain forest, a world that has changed little in thousands of years.

The amazing Elephant Experience

Your guide will also teach you about the mahout, the elephant caretaker.

The man-made lake is surrounded by Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered in tropical rain forest that rise up from the shore of the lake and disappear in the far distance.The scenery has been compared to Guilin in China and Halong Bay in Vietnam.Few people know of the lake and even less have visited it. There are more than one hundred islands in the lake and it stretches over 60 km from North to South. In the 70’s the area was a hide-out for communists and students opposing the military dictatorship, which well preserved the area’s unique environment as it was spared from urbanization. You can enjoy the spectacular scenery from the boat and will have time to dip into the lake’s emerald water. Please bring your swimwear; towels are provided at the local raft house, where you will stop over for lunch and relaxation.Good night, Khao Sok. In the late afternoon return to Elephant Hills for dinner and overnight in your luxury tent. The jungle bar will be open for people wanting to exchange stories of their day’s experiences at the lake, and as extra entertainment you can witness a different movie, a different dance performance and a different cooking demonstration today – enough to keep you busy until dinner, and enough action to ensure sweet dreams after you have been lulled to sleep by the background symphony of insects and frogs.

3 day 2 night Beach & Rain Forest Safari

Day 1: MYSTERIOUS MANGROVES

Into the wild

Pick-up from your hotel or the airport in Phuket, Khao Lak, Phang Nga, Krabi, Surat Thani or even from Koh Samui and transfer to the Phang Nga province, passing small rural villages, rubber and oil palm plantations – glimpses of tropical rural life here in southern Thailand can be caught. Exploring a primeval swamp Board a speed boat near Takua Pa to explore the mysterious maze of channels in the mangrove forest, it really feels like some primeval swamp. Our well-trained guides keep an eye out for wildlife that might be spotted along the way, like mangrove cat snakes, reticulated pythons or red-tailed racers. Also a wide variety of bird species inhabit the area – make sure you bring your binoculars. Cruising through the channels we finally meet and board a classical Burmese junk. Bathroom facilities are available, and lunch will be served on board, but not before you had the opportunity to explore the nearby mangrove creek in a self-paddled canoe – a silent journey into this dense, green world, full of natural wonders waiting to be appreciated by you.Very few people live in this area, so little has changed here in hundreds of years. Cruising on the junk gives you the feeling of traveling back in time when nature was still untouched and mobile phones didn't exist. Spend the afternoon on a deserted beach: Swim, relax, build sand castles, catch crabs or paddle a canoe. The panoramic views of distant mangroves and banyan trees stretch to the horizon. On the way to Elephant Hills you will stop at a local market, before you are safely transferred to the camp.
