Why Elephant Village is special ?

Elephant Village ensures the support of indigenous & disadvantaged people in remote areas by giving them employment through the creation of dozens of jobs under fair social circumstances.

Elephant Village ensures the support and the survival of (currently) 9 elephants living in harmony with nature and the community. They are kept away from abusive work and cared by professional veteranarians.

Elephant village ensures the preservation of a virgin river valley that otherwise would be destroyed by signing a 20 year lease agreement with the Lao government to establish a sustainable tourism project.

Elephant Village gives rescued elephants a safe, new home where they are free from abusive work. Elephant Village provides local villagers a better livelihood so they can stop their slash and burn tradition.

Elephant Village operates under the principle of care & share. By caring for the elephants and sharing with the local communities Elephant Village ensures that everyone benefits from your visit… you included.

Elephant Village has access to a veterinarian who works not just with the elephants but trains the mahouts and local people how to care for their elephants in an internationally recognised way.

We did the full day Mahout Elephant Experience and it was worth the money. At first we thought it was pricey, but we were willing to pay because we heard that the Sanctuary really takes care of the elephants and there are measures in place to make sure they are not overworked. The guide picked us up from out hotel and took us to the Sanctuary, which was beautiful. They then gave us a little history of the elephants and then we took turns learning how to command the elephants. We then went on an elephant ride through the Mekong and back to the sanctuary, which was beautiful especially with the scenery. Then we got a chance to feed the elephants by buying bananas for a dollar. Then we had a chance to bath the elephants, which was so much fun and absolutely worth it. Lastly, we were given a chance to relax and enjoy ourselves with a free drink and a dip in their new pool. One of the best days we had in Luang Prabang, and worth every cent, we hope to come back one day. Thanks for the great memories!
