ELEPHANT TREKKING AND RIVER CAMP IN KRABI

For a wonderful adventure, visit Nosey Parker’s Elephant Trekking and River Camp in Krabi, Thailand

Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd., a rental company of luxury private villa accommodations, offers a wonderful adventure for its guests at Nosey Parker’s Elephant Trekking and River Camp in Krabi, Thailand.

Krabi Riviera Villa chose Nosey Parker’s because they treat their elephants humanely and with love, providing adequate shade and water, exercise, nutritious food and optimum care. Their elephants are older and have been around people all of their lives so they are very comfortable around humans. It’s also important to note that elephants are revered in Thailand and are one of the country’s national symbols.

The adventure begins with a 7-kilometer car ride from Ao Nang to Nosey Parker’s. (The concierge will arrange for transport to Ao Nang and back.) At the camp, the staff will introduce you to your elephant. With the assistance of a special platform, you mount the elephant that is fitted with a very comfortable saddle strapped to its back. Many of the saddles are large enough to carry two adults and one child.

The trek takes you through a pristine jungle forest where you will hear and likely see many of its birds, and perhaps even monkeys. The ride is very relaxing and quiet as the elephant’s stride rocks back and forth. They are truly gentle giants.

Elephant Baths

It is great fun to see the elephants bathing in the river, as they love the water. They submerge, roll and spray water with their trunks, while the agile staff members scrub them down. After their bath, the elephants love to roll in the dust and dirt, which acts to protect them from the sun and insects

Visitors are invited to see the elephants bathe, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Check with the staff for bathing times.

Program 1: Adults 800 BHT, Children (4-11) 400 BHT
