Learning to “drive” an elephant at sunrise. The playful antics of river bath time in the river. Trekking through native forest and past picturesque rice paddies. Discovering a rare glimpse of traditional mahout life.
A true highlight of Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is the renowned onsite Elephant Camp, which offers unforgettable adventures and unique experiences with a cast of gentle giants. Established in 2003 as a traditional mahout village, the camp works alongside the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation to perform street rescues, provide employment and a comfortable lifestyle for our elephants and their entire mahout families, and to participate in bigger picture projects. We now support more than 25 elephants and 60 people, and are proudly fully funded by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, our owning company and guest donations.
