By joining our tours you will fully experience the peaceful and beautiful world of the Asian elephant. Not only will you enjoy a relaxing stay in the Nam Tien protected area but you will also learn all you want to know about Asia’s most iconic creature! You will receive expert information about the condition of the Asian elephant, its biology, cultural importance and the challenges of the species’ conservation. You will have the opportunity to observe our elephant herd in its natural habitat. During your visit at the Center you will spend a lot of time walking through our protected area. The area is forested and might not always be accessible without you getting dirty. Activities in the forest may vary during the rainy season between May and September. You will be guided by a local English speaking guide and international experts.

This program differs from the EXPLORATION Program by offering a day of activities outside the Center, in a traditional Lao village, a unique experience closer to the world of the mahouts of the “Land of the Million Elephants” (during the “dry” season). During the “rainy” season, the village visit will be replaced by a trek with mahouts and elephants at our newly created CAMP 2.
