Elephant feeding, bathing, Sea Turtle Conservation Center and Bamboo rafting

Our commitment to the ethical treatment of Thailand’s elephants is clearly represented in our Seaside Retreat. It is the only Elephant Camp that guarantee a NO riding concept so that our guests are able to experience the majestetic giants in peace and harmony.

The Seaside Retreat is a relaxing place nestled not far from the Khao Lak National Park with a splendid view over the Andaman Sea. This is the place to be when you want to enjoy some quality time with our majestic Elephants. At a beautiful lagoon in the neighborhood, you will get the experience bathing and showering an elephant. Afterwards you will be enjoying your time to feed them and spend time with them. Plant a mangrove tree. Mangrove forest is the fundamental element in the coastal ecosystem, and by planting a mangrove tree on the banks of the river, visitors can help protect the environment shared by animals and humans. After a delicious Thai lunch we start a relaxing Bamboo Raft trip down the jungle river surrounded by stunning natural vibe!

Trip Advisor quotes:
Dimity GAdelaide, Australia “My partner and I have just returned from ten days in KhaoLak and we used Eco KhaoLak for three different excursions/trips. We loved each trip as Eco cater for small groups, which is ideal. So many tour companies in Thailand take such large groups that it is not usually much fun but Eco will only take 12 at the most…”
