Elephant Park

The Elephant Park has 25 activity combinations to choose from, or you can meet our experienced staff and create your own personal package.

Although historically known as the ‘land of a million elephants’, Laos is gradually losing its biggest and most regal animals to human development. The Elephant Park Project is investing in community-based eco-programmes in Luang Prabang to give Lao Elephants a new home. As forests disappear, the elephants used to log them can become neglected. Our aim is to give these elephants a brighter future!

So far six elephants have been freed from loggingwork and given a new home in the park. Experienced mahouts, and vets help the elephants adapt to their new environment. Sick or older elephants are given special attention. The Elephant Park Project plans to expand its refuge to more elephants. Younger animals will learn their eco-tourism skills at an Elephant Training Centre, and an Elephant Information House will explain to visitors how traditional technology can transform dung into bio-gas, fertilizer and natural hand-made
paper. Another future attraction is the Trail of Falls, a canopy garden with tree houses and an additional Elephant Station.

As well as protecting the Asian Elephant, all our eco-tours support the communities around the park. Guides, cooks, mahouts, and maintenance staff from the surrounding villages work at the Elephant Park, which also funded construction of the local water supply. Profits help fund the nearby Xieng Lom school.

A percentage of every Tiger Trail tour sold goes to the Elephant Park Project so all our customers help Elephant Conservation in Laos, whether you ride the elephants or not.
