Quick Trip – Half Day (4.5 hours)
Perfect for travellers on a budget!

This option is perfect for travellers on a tight budget or who are short on time. Spend the morning hiking 3-4 km out into the forest to meet a group of elephants. Here you will see them in their natural environment, a truly special experience which is not always easy to find over Southeast Asia.

Great for those who want to see elephants in their natural habitat!

You will hike between 5-8 km in and around the stunning Cambodian jungle to observe two different elephant herds. Follow them as they play, graze and navigate their forested home. The Ele Lover full day program also gives travellers the opportunity to learn more about the elephants, the conservation work done by the EVP and the lives and culture of the local indigenous people.
Lunch is included and will be a Khmer style buffet lunch! Unlimited water refills are available at base camp.
