A view over the lake that surrounds the elephant sanctuary in Laos“This was a wonderful experience. We had a great time and hope to return soon. Learning about elephant conservation efforts and being part of a uniquely pristine natural environment were real highlights.”

It was completely unforgettable! I am missing Laos so much already! Seeing the mother and baby girl elephant playing and bathing in the lake was a truly wonderful moment. Feeding the elephants was without a doubt one of the best bits of the trip, climbing through the rainforest was unlike anything I’ve ever done before and the views were extraordinary. I loved eating delicious, traditional Laotian food every day, and finally learning firsthand from experienced biologists how to identify a healthy elephant and the problems facing both wild and captive Asian elephants today.”
