Family volunteering with elephants in Laos

Laos, once known as the “Land of a Million Elephants”, is now home to just several hundred elephants living in the wild. You and your family will come together with other animal lovers to help bring more elephants out of captivity to live in this wonderful haven. Witness the babies at the nursery, laugh as the adults splash in the lake, and marvel as they roam in their newfound freedom.

Dates: All year round for 7 days

Suitability: You know your children best, but we would suggest a minimum age of 8 for this project. You need to be prepared to walk relatively long distances over relatively steep inclines, be happy with basic accommodation and be up for a very different experience.
