ELEPHANT SHELTER LUANG PRABANG, LAOS

Ethical Elephant Tours in Luang Prabang, Laos

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin

The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?

David Attenborough

We have developed a new philosophy towards elephant tours…

Ethical Tours

All of our elephant based tours are strictly NO riding under any circumstances.

study nature, love nature

Our relationship with our community isboth give and take. We learn a lot about how to live with nature and we teach modern ways of elephant care.

Elphants first...but also humans

We make sure that our tours go on routes that do not disturb local farmers and in turn, they recommend routes that our elephants will enjoy more such as paths with lots of food!

Professional medical care

We bring in a professional veterinarian from Thailand 3 times each year to make sure that our elephants are happy and healthy. However we deffer to the families that own our elephants to let us know if they are in distress.

Nature's great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.

John Donne

Intimate, Ethical, Elephant Tours

Mass tourism can destroy both a country and its nature. Elephant Shelter Luang Prabang takes a more relaxed route to discovery. We limit the amount of people we take per tour.

Seeing these majestic animals up close and in a state of bliss will not only ensure that you are doing the right thing, but also give you memories of a lifetime.

Our “Middle Way” philosophy was cerated with the local villagers and is a holistic method to both looking after our elephants and making sure that the community is happy.
