Elephant Hills Jungle Safari
Elephant Hills is Thailand’s first luxury jungle camp combining the experience of an African Safari with a Thai Forest setting.
The scenery is dramatic; jungle covered limestone peaks and a forest with an array of animals and plants. Accommodation is in 30 luxurious tents, all with an en suite bathroom. The tents are spacious and well protected against mosquitoes and other intruders. There is an attractive restaurant, a log fire to sit around with drinks and a swimming pool. A 2 hour guided Canoe tour and elephant experience are all included.
The New Jungle Lake Camp is 10 luxury floating tents, set spectacularly on Cheow Larn Lake. Each floating tent includes an en suite bathroom, a comfortable double bed and a sun deck to sit and enjoy the amazing views of the lake and the Rainforest Mountains. Guests can canoe off from their own deck (canoe hire included) to explore the lake and perhaps spot the monkeys or array of birdlife. Guided canoe tours & optional jungle treks are also included. Facilities include a restaurant and bar.
Day 1 Arrive Elephant Hills
You will be met on arrival at Phuket Airport and transferred to Elephant Hills Luxury Tented Camp. Ideally you should have a flight arriving into Phuket before 9.30am. On arrival at the resort enjoy lunch before a Canoe Safari down the Sok River. In the afternoon enjoy the 'Elephant Experience'. Interact with the Elephants and learn the secrets of their mahouts. You will prepare and feed the elephants one of their daily meals, scrub and clean and watch them bathe.
Note: Elephant Hills is all about caring for the elephants, there is no riding on, or trekking with the Elephants. This is truly a once in a lifetime chance to experience the Asian Elephant, the largest land animal in this part of the world.
Late afternoon opt to relax by the pool, watch the Thai cooking demonstration, then dinner and overnight.
Day 2 Cheow Larn Lake
After breakfast depart by truck and then by long-tailed boat to the luxury floating tents on Cheow Larn Lake. A stop is made at a local market en route. Enjoy self-paddle canoeing on the lake and look out for monkeys swinging through the trees. Lunch and dinner and overnight.
Day 3 Depart Cheow Larn Lake
Breakfast and a choice of relaxing by the lake with a swim or canoe or a guided jungle trek in the rainforest. After lunch, transfer onto your next location by boat and road transfer arriving approximately 5pm.
On leaving Elephant Hills you will be transferred to your chosen beach accommodation where you will spend a relaxing few nights before flying back to the UK.
