Elephant Hills

Surat Thani, Thailand

Prices From: $250 pp/per day

Elephant Hills is Thailands first luxury tented jungle camp, combining the camp idea of African national parks with Thai tropical forest environment. Elephant Hills offers a range of multi-day safari's that incorporate elephant trekking through the rainforest, canoeing down the Sok River, jungle trekking and visits to the Cheow Larn Lake and mangrove forests.

The 20 luxurious tents are tailor-made and set in the largest area of rainforest in Southern Thailand. Each tent features twin beds, a fan, a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities, electricity and outlets, and a luxurious bathroom with toilet, hot/cold shower and hair dryer. The tents provide ample space and are well protected against mosquitoes and other possible intruders. The furniture is handmade by local, skilled craftsmen using natural materials and provides all the comfort a guest would normally find in a hotel room. There are enough lights to read by and fill your diaries with the days observations.

At the center of the camp is the semi-open air main camp housing the restaurant. This serves as the place to meet other guests. Two resident monkeys also make an occasional appearance and a variety of birds can be watched.

The forest is filled with animals and plants, some of them can only be found in this environment. A night at Elephant Hills is a unique experience; the temperatures drop, campfires create a romantic and warm atmosphere in which to share travel tales and the rainforest and its inhabitants form an exciting concert that accompanies visitors through the night.

From a scenic canoe trip on the Sok River and a ride on elephant back through the forest, to various trekking routes that can match all skill levels the camp is the perfect base to meet the unique and natural treasures Southern Thailand has to offer. Guests are able to learn about the tropical environment and its inhabitants, elephants and their conservation and some of the secrets of Thai cooking will also be lifted here.
