We stayed at the Elephant hills floating tented camp at the beginning of December. We had great weather. Staying on the water was such a fun experience. We went on the hike with the guide and had quite an adventure. The trek was very steep and once you start you can’t turn back. We would suggest bringing hiking shoes, as we did. We did not have some of the troubles others on the hike did. They also had a kayak trip that you could go on. We swam with the large carp in front of our tent and fed them popcorn. We loved listening to the monkeys! We would recommend this trip into Khao Sok National park.

We really enjoyed our 3 day 2 night day trip sandwiched between stays in a hotel in Khao Lak. It was wonderful to meet the older elephant ladies and stay in the jungle. The real highlight for us was the trip to the lake and overnight stay in the floating camp. I’ve been to many wonderful places in the world but the lake was one of the most peaceful and unspoilt. I could happily have spent a couple more nights there if it was an option. The food in both camps was great and it is a very well oiled machine! If you’re not keen on regimented activities it might not be the place for you but they do it very well.

Excellent experience from start to finish . Everything was expertly planned. The staff were amazing - special shout out to Saow .
Would recommend this to anyone. Seeing the elephants was wonderful but staying on the lake was a once in a lifetime experience -waking up to gibbons calling to each other . Early morning swimming in the lake was perfect .

This was a fantastic tour which worked like clockwork considering how many guests they had from our Pick up in krabi to our dropoff in Koh Samui. The food was amazing . The highlight of course is getting to feed the elephants as well as watching them in the water. The lake stay a close 2nd and is a must and is beautiful. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

Dear Khun rajthedog17,

Greetings from Khao Sok!

Many thanks for staying with us at Elephant Hills, and for taking the time to write this excellent review here on Tripadvisor. We are very excited to hear that you had great time with us here in one of the world's oldest rainforests. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the clean and comfortable tent in the excellent lay out, and found all activities were fun and well run.

Thank you for your excellent feedback on your total experience particularly the food and gentle giant moment. We have just forwarded your amazing comments to the team and we are sure they will all be thrilled to hear from you.

We, including the elephants, hope to be able to welcome you back to Elephant Hills Tented Camp soon again!

Just amazing! Incredible experience, incredible service, incredible activities and wonderful team.

We weren’t sure what to expect. We wanted an experience that was respectful of the environment and wildlife but allowed us to experience the jungle and rainforest.

We arrived to be greeted by a stunning tented camp in the jungle. After a wonderful lunch we took canoes down the river and spent the afternoon learning about and feeding Asian Elephants. The elephant interactions were appropriate and respectful in small groups and tightly managed.

After a night in a wonderfully equipped (and 5 star equipped) tent we travelled out to the national park and spent 2 days and a night on a wonderful small floating village.

We hiked, caved, swam and kayaked. Our guides and the wildlife wardens were superb. The experience was like nothing we’d done before.

We cannot recommend the experience highly enough!

We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed the overall experiences with us; from the tents, activities, camp settings, facilities, foods to the elephant meetings.
