Elephant Camp Adventure - 3 weeks

What will you be doing, who will you meet and where will you stay?

Get up close and personal with Thailand.

The Elephant Camp adventure will be a truly memorable experience. All we can say is you will really appreciate the hospitality of Elephant Camp. The group size of the projects are really small so you won’t feel overcrowded and you will get to know the local community and the children you will be teaching.

You will be able to give so much of your knowledge to the Mahouts and the children in the camp and they will not forget your teaching. Immerse yourself in the project for 3 weeks and we can promise you that it will be an experience you will not forget, wherever you might find yourself in the months ahead.

It’s easier then you think to make a difference.

Highlights of the project

The 3-week adventure will be an adventure of a lifetime. No other elephant camp can offer you the hospitality and the intimacy of this project because we keep the numbers small, so that you truly get the full experience of living and working with elephants. The moment you walk into the Elephant Camp you will feel special. The big highlights of this trip are teaching the children in the Kindergarten and the Mahouts as well as getting to know the elephants and having the chance to experience first hand what it's like to work with these magnificent animals.
