Elephant Experience
&
Hot Springs

 

on our Ele­phant Expe­ri­ence you will have the unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to real­ly get in touch with the Asian Ele­phant. we have cho­sen the Ele­phant Camp care­ful­ly and have helped design­ing this eth­i­cal pro­gram. for the Mahouts (Ele­phant care­tak­ers), and every­body involved in run­ning the ele­phant camp, the ani­mals wel­fare will always be more impor­tant than the tourists sat­is­fac­tion.

our pro­gram is designed to make this encounter as enjoy­able and inti­mate as pos­si­ble for every­body, for you and for the ele­phants. 

you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pre­pare some spe­cial ele­phant food and to feed the gen­tle giants as an intro­duc­tion. after that, you will have a mud bath with them, which is kind of a Ele­phant Spa treat­ment, as it is ben­e­fi­cial to their skin and they enjoy it a lot. after the mud bath, you will walk down to the riv­er togeth­er where the mud will be washed off and you can brush your new friend and play togeth­er in the fresh riv­er water… 

after leav­ing the Ele­phant Camp, you will con­tin­ue your tour to the local hot springs. the man-made pools are filled with nat­ur­al hot spring water. it just puts a per­fect end­ing to an adven­tur­ous day… time to relax

Note

1. Ele­phant tourism is a very dif­fi­cult top­ic. we have cho­sen the ele­phant camp care­ful­ly. In our opin­ion it is the best camp around Khao Sok. But that does not mean, that there is no room for improve­ment. If you have any sug­ges­tions, ques­tions, or if you are inter­est­ed in talk­ing about the gen­er­al sit­u­a­tion of ele­phants in Thai­land, just share your thoughts with us…

2. The dura­tion of the tour is short on pur­pose in order to keep the stress lev­els for the ele­phants as low as pos­si­ble.

3. We do not sup­port ele­phant sad­dle rid­ing, because the ele­phants spine is not build to car­ry weight. If you are sit­ting on the ele­phants neck, the front legs are eas­i­ly capa­ble of sup­port­ing your weight and it will not hurt the ani­mals.
