What an amazing experience from start to end. Fam of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids (14,11)). First camping and activity experience for kids. Tik was our fabulous guide. We were there for 3 days/2 nights, all the activities were planned to precision and very informative.

My husband is a very fussy eater but was more than satisfied with the food. I am a vegetarian and kids are pescatarians, this was not a problem for the camp, they provided specially prepared delicious meals for us.

Would definitely recommend a visit. Do consider a night at the Lake, although we did not stay there, but did visit it by day, we heard excellent reviews from other guests who stayed there.

Something out of the normal for for people that what some adventure and change. I did the 3 day 2 night tour and loved every moment of it. The elephants are well looked after which I was mainly concerned about we didnt ride them but we bathed and fed them such beautiful animals. The tents in the jungle with their all equipped bathrooms are amazing. Its like "glamping" glamorous camping if you will. The jungle and cave trek was challenging but an awesome experience. The beautiful lake was nice and warm aswell and the floating tents are just so cool. Great staff and very informative. with all food accomo and transfers included this was such a worthwhile trip to Khao Sok.

Beautiful tents, very friendly personnel, excellent food, fantastic organization.
We stayed 1 night in the base camp and 2 nights on the lake, which we can fully recommend as it was one of the most beautiful places in Thailand we have ever been. The extra day at the lake gives more time for relaxation. The stars at night are amazing, we saw plenty of gibbons and monkeys. Transport of people and logistics has been thought over and is very smooth. Pick up and drop off were very well organized. They were very good with kids. It isn't cheap, but worth every penny!!!

We stayed 3 days and 2 nights in the jungle camp and it was incredible. The elephant experience is fantastic, you are really close to them, washing them down and feeding them. The surrounding scenery for the canoeing down the river is great taking. A jungle trek in torrential rain coming lunch in the forest was also fantastic. The guides are friendly, knowledgable and informative. The food is absolutely delicious, the tents are fantastic even in heavy rain.
I can not recommend this highly enough, a fantastic experience that has created many family memories. Just book it!

Visited elephant hills with my wife and teenage sons and absolutely loved it , spent 4 days there with my highlight being the elephant experience on our first day , he elephants were so tame and friendly ! However you really felt like they were treated well and were happy , the sheer appearance of the khao sok national park is really something else, the food at the camp was really outstanding with a great selection for my vegetarian wife , they have a bar which charges you for coffees, beers and soft drinks , however is very reasonably priced . Only thing I would say is be prepared for a bit of travelling, the camp isn't as close to a lot of things as we were expecting , so spent a couple hours travelling on most days , However there really isn't much they can do about that .

Loved this incredible experience and would definitely recommend to any families , couples or mates considering visiting Thailand.
