“We believe that every elephant deserves a life of dignity. Partnering with the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, we’ve rescued and adopted more than 20 elephants from Thailand’s crowded city streets to help them lead happy lives in our jungle surroundings.” – Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts
The philosophy of Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle is a celebration of nature, including unique bond we have the opportunity to create. Although the vintage-style explorer tents and lodges, tranquil riverside swimming pool and open-air spa are all equally alluring, the chance to meet and learn about the rescued Asian elephants who reside at the resort’s sanctuary are undoubtedly one of the main attractions of this traditional Thai resort.
Working with the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF), their aim is to provide health care, nourishment, exercise and veterinary care to rescued elephants, while training and working with mahouts to embed good practice in elephant care across the wider community of Thailand.
Guests of the resort are encouraged to connect with the elephants in many ways, all while learning to respect these calm and noble creatures...
Join the hard-working mahouts as the elephants relish their daily bathing ritual. An important element of everyday life when living in the wild, a dip in the water is important for the elephants’ hygiene and skin care, and also provides chance for them to cool off in typically tropical weather. It’s easy to observe the happiness on their faces as they happily roll and splash about in the muddy water!
Sunrise With Elephants
Wake early and begin your day in the company an elephant. As the dawn breaks, you’ll being the climb to the Camp Peak alongside the elephants and their mahouts, before admiring the fiery sunrise from behind the mountains of Laos. The ultimate moment for a photograph and a memory to tick off your bucket list.
Elephant Camp Dinner
Following a day of education surrounding these majestic creatures, sit down to savour a candlelit, al fresco dinner at the Elephant Camp. As you dine upon a menu of delicious cuisine paired with fine wines, you’ll listen to traditional musicians playing Thai folk songs as the soundtrack to this unique wilderness experience.
