Luang prabang Elephant Camp

Luang Prabang Elephant Camp with Treasure Travel Laos {JPEG}A Sanctuary for the Beautiful Asian Elephant and a place where you can come to have a life changing experience with these Magnificent Mammals.

The Luang Prabang Elephant Camp is supervised by Mr Tha Thao, an elephant expert and instructor whose passion for the elephants is infectious. Under his guidance, Luang Prabang Elephant Camp has become the place in Asia to get up close and personal with these friendly giants. Arriving at the Elephant Camp from various logging camps in Laos we have turned starved, beaten and over worked Elephants into healthy, relaxed and happy Elephants. We have a close connection with Sayaboury Elephant Conservation Centre. Two of the Mahouts were trained by the centre. We also use their expert vets to check on the Elephants health.

Luang Prabang Elephant Camp - feeding time!!! {JPEG}Luang Prabang Elephant Camp is the perfect place for an elephant experience. Tha and the Mahouts will give you the opportunity to learn about the Asian Elephant, you will engage with our elephants by feeding them, have an opportunity to ride the Elephants (note: we have strict controls in place, no more than 30 minutes per ride and a maximum 2 persons on one elephant. We restrict rides to a maximum of 3 trips per day per elephant) and for the more adventurous you can bathe the elephants in the river. For an even more hands on and educational experience take a mahout course for the day.
