Observe elephants in their natural habitat when you stay in a luxurious, air-conditioned Jungle Bubble in a private elephant camp. Other than an enclosed bathroom, the bubbles are transparent, with full views of the elephants as they leisurely lumber by.
The camp is home to 22 elephants that have been rescued from city streets and is part of a luxury all-inclusive resort with 40 rooms and six suites where guests can return after a stay in the Jungle Bubbles.
Walk, play and interact with the giant pachyderms while learning about their behavior and biology on the Walking with Giants tour.
Anantara Golden Elephant Camp and Resort is in Chiang Rai in northern Thailand. The resort has 40 rooms and 15 suites, including six for families. There’s a spa at Lanna Resort, meeting facilities and gorgeous unique locations for weddings.
Elephants rescued from the streets, illegal logging camps or elephant shows come to live at the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation.
