Why Elephant Trek and Elephant Bath - Half Day is special ?

This camp is right on the edge of the Phanom Bencha Nation Park. It's a beautiful shady places for the elephants and the trek itself follows a path around the edge of the National Park with spectacular scenery. Its a 40 minute drive from Aonang but really worth the trip.


  • Elephant Trek

The trek takes about 50 minutes, a serene ride through the countryside, passing along a stream, though rubber and palm and fruit plantations and some of the real natural forest that surrounds the camp. Total distance is about 2km with plenty of time for the elephants to enjoy a bit of a snack along the way, elephants need to eat about 250kg of food every day so there really is no time to waste!


Riding an elephant through the jungle is really the best way to see the countryside, they are perfectly quiet so you move along without disturbing the nature and can really appreciate the sounds of the countryside, insects and birds put on quite an orchestral performance. Being high up also gives a great viewpoint to get a glimpse of the countryside all around.


  • Elephant Bath

The bathing trip is three times a day with two-morning sessions (pickup pat 08:30am and 10:30am and an afternoon session with a pickup at 1:30pm. First, the seat platforms are removed followed by the dozen or so thick carpets that protect their bodies. Then, it's off to the river for a well earned cooling splash.



Bencha the baby takes the bathing part on many days, it gives her something to keep her entertained and she does seem to enjoy it.
