Observe, play and connect with elephants in their natural environment. Setting a benchmark for welfare, our award-winning elephant camp offers unforgettable journeys – some included in your Discovery package and others as additions to your experience.
The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) serves as a home for elephants, mahouts and their families - rescued primarily from illegal logging camps, the street, or elephant shows.
Support our work by sponsoring an elephant - it takes approximately USD 18,000 to look after a single elephant a year, and your money will be put towards food, general upkeep and medical care.
Walking with Giants
Journey into the jungle with our elephants and their mahouts on their daily walk, and watch as these gentle giants splash in the river or play in the mud, snack on leaves from nearby branches, and socialise with one another.
Please note that this programme does not include riding elephants.
ELE Elephant Learning Experience
Delve into elephant biology, behaviour and conservation research with our resident experts. Afterwards, take the elephants to their bathing area for a cool drink and well-deserved shower.
VIP Elephant Arrival
Arrive at the airport and travel by private car to Chiang Saen. Board a longtail boat and cruise the Mekong to the confluence of two rivers where the Golden Triangle begins. Pulling up at the jetty, a welcoming committee of gentle giants greets you.
The VIP Elephant Arrival takes approximately 1.5 hours and is only available during daylight hours.
Elephant Walk & Yoga
Walk through the jungle beside your gentle companion, stopping for the occasional snack and play. Reaching a sala in the paddy fields, stretch and unwind with gentle yoga poses to start your day.
Elephant Walk & Sunset
Set out before dusk through the jungle, accompanied by your gentle giant. Arriving at a secluded hilltop, a beautifully decorated sala awaits. Ascend for magnificent three-country views, toasting the sunset with your chosen beverages and canapés.
