Elephant Village, Ban Xieng Lom

4.3
#3 of 12 in Wildlife in Luang Prabang
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Nestled near the winding banks of the Nam Khan River, Elephant Village provides a safe haven for the rescued elephants of Laos. The village focuses on the rehabilitation and integration of the elephants, many of whom are victims of severe brutality within the logging trade. Start your visit with an elephant walk, then initiate your self with some simple "mahout" training--learning commands and gestures to communicate with your elephant. Take a rest in leafy surrounds at the Elephant Camp restaurant, then walk down to the river’s edge for elephant bath time, and be prepared to get wet. Contact the village to arrange your full- or half-day experience, which includes transport to and from your hotel. Make Elephant Village a part of your Luang Prabang vacation plans using our Luang Prabang trip builder.
