Elephant Hills 3 Day Jungle Lake Safari
Khao Sok National Park in south Thailand is a spectacular place to visit. It is covered by the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world, huge limestone mountains shooting straight up in the air, deep valleys, breathtaking lakes, exciting caves, wild animals and much more.
Your package includes scheduled, joint transfers to and from Elephant Hills. Transfer options are Phuket, Khao Lak, Surat Thani, Krabi and Koh Samui. Please contact your agent for the transfer schedules. Outside of the scheduled, joint transfers we can arrange private transfers at additional cost. Elephant Hills recommends Surat Thani; the airport is small, there is less traffic and the journey is shorter than that of Phuket.
Elephant Camp 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 35 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.
The Rainforest Camp is 20 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 are also included. Facilities include a restaurant and bar.
