Stay

Elephant HillsKhao Sok, Thailand

Set up shop in the wilds of the southern Thai jungle as you visit Elephant Hills. Start at the main camp, staying in one of 30 luxury tents boasting bathrooms, electricity (renewable, of course) and ceiling fans. Here, guests feed elephants, watch them bathe and learn about conservation and why rides are a no-go.

Once you’re ready to say goodbye to wi-fi, board a long-tail boat and sail deep into the tropical forest. Disembark at the Rainforest Camp where 10 tents bob over Cheow Larn Lake. From your terrace, slide into the water for a swim or lounge back and scour the canopy for snakes and gibbons.

During the day, learn to cook traditional Thai cuisine, meet elephants, go canoeing and spot wildlife on a jungle trek.

  • Ensuite bathrooms
  • 10 luxury safari tents at the rainforest camp
  • Solar and wind power
  • 30 luxurious tents at the main camp

A three-day Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari will set you back about US$510 per person.

You might find the jungle explorations challenging, but we guarantee you’ll have no trouble relaxing in comfortable surroundings once you’re done!
