Our amazing elephant project is Located in Surin, you will be surrounded by inspiring natural wonder, off the beaten track and far from the bustling streets that you would have seen in Bangkok.

We have about 35 elephants living in the elephant village, which is situated about 1 hour from the Cambodian border, which means on your free days it easy to pop over and explore the neighbouring country. It gets better, you can indulge in a Thai cooking class and even brush up on your Thai with a Thai language lesson to really make your experience unforgettable.
