Itinerary

Day 01 Elephant riding, Tad Sae Waterfall, and the Elephant Lodge

We’ll pick you up between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. at your hotel and drive you to the Elephant Village Camp, where you will learn more about elephants before you go for a 3km ride (2 riders per elephant). Afterward, you’ll start your basic mahout training on how to control an elephant by yourself while riding in the neck of the Elephant. For lunch, you’ll dine at the Elephant Camp river view restaurant; it’s a buffet lunch served with coffee / tea and drinking water (vegetarian options available).

After lunch, you can bathe your elephant in the Nam Khan river. It’s an exhilarating experience, followed by a boat trip to the Tad Sae Waterfall, where you can relax with a swim in the cool water.

Afterwards, you’ll have dinner at the Elephant Camp restaurant (set menu served with drinking water) and spend a relaxing night at our Elephant Lodge, with stunning views of the Nam Khan river.

Day 02 Morning elephant bathing and return

You’ll start by retrieving your elephant from her jungle hideaway and taking her down to the Nam Khan river for an exhilarating bathing experience. It’s a magical way to start the day. Then enjoy breakfast at the Elephant Camp restaurant (set menu with coffee / tea and drinking water) before heading back to your Hotel in Luang Prabang, which you’ll reach between 10:00 and 11:00 am
