The Asian Elephant. What a sight to behold. These gentle giants are ever present throughout the history of Thailand and are a source of real admiration and pride for the Thai people.
Imagine yourself walking side by side with one of these beautiful creatures, their footsteps the only sound for miles as you journey to one of the most magical places on earth: the Golden Triangle, where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. This tranquil pocket of Asia, with its scenic landscapes and undeniable charm, provides the perfect backdrop for your elephant adventures.
The base for your exploration is the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort. Tucked into the picturesque mountains of northern Thailand, we simply love this resort, where the luxury suites boast their own private balconies and the romantic terrazzo tubs are big enough for two. Where the spa graces the mountains like an oasis of calm, and the authentic Thai cuisine takes you on a culinary journey of its own.
As part of your all-inclusive Discovery Experience package, your adventures will begin with a leisurely breakfast buffet, followed by a sumptuous lunch of gourmet treats. You will then make your way down to the onsite Elephant Camp, where a choice of Mahout Training, Elephant Learning Experience and Walking with Giants activities await.
Discover the strong bond between mahout (elephant keeper) and elephant with the Mahout Training, master the Thai commands and drive one of the magnificent giants for yourself. With the Elephant Learning Experience, observe the playful interaction of the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation’s rescued young elephants.
Meander into the jungle on foot with the Walking with Giants activity, accompanying the elephants and their mahouts on their daily walk. A real enlightenment into how the eles are thinking, you will watch as they splash in the river or play in the mud, all the while collecting memories to last for a life time.
