A true passion and love for animals drives Elephant Conservation Center, which allows visitors to get in touch with elephants, observing their routine and learning about them through educational tours and volunteer work. Launched in 2011, the center is dedicated to the protection and conservation of the endangered Asian elephant, the national animal of Laos. The complex contains several medical and rehabilition facilities; you can witness elephants recovering in the training center, or visit the hospital. Spend a night in a small bungalow and join the team to get a greater insight in the life of the gentle giants, with the center providing stays of one or more nights.

  • Overall very positive and interesting, many explanations and activities, accommodation Nice is not the luxury necessarily because in nature but very correct. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable food of choice. Only good memories, clearly to do even though the price may seem high for some.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and 3 days and we do not regret a singel second of it. We recommend that you stay at least 2 nights to get the most of it. Why you should visit this place a...  more »
  • I had the good fortune to spend a whole week in the ECC. The proximity to the elephant with the correct distance (you must not ride or simply touch the animal plays the main role, man is the only observer) was an absolutely impressive experience. If you love animals, you will be thrilled. Also, the camp is great, on the Lake, you can paddle or swim in it. The sunset is unforgettable and the team very, very nice. If one is in Laos, you should have seen this in any case.

  • I’ve expended two nights at the center and it’s going to be an unforgettable experience. I’ve learnt a lot about this amazing creatures. The team is impressive and very friendly. The program’s approach is to follow and observe the elephants in their routine and their environment: the forest. I liked elephants before my visit. Now I love them :))
  • Did the 2 day discovery and really enjoyed it. The bungalow was amazing and we had a good nights sleep. Love the work the ECC do and it was nice to say hello to a few of the elephants.
  • After a bit of research, chose this organisation for the dollars to be spent at. Passionate staff, is an understatement and beautiful is and inadequate word. Sensibly presented as a package, beginning with a minivan pick up from the Luang Prabang Post Office. Two and a half hours has you at Namteg Lake, Sayyabouri. A lunch, a walk, an introduction to elephants (viewed from across the water) All designed to introduce you slowly to the surrounds and their inhabitants. We opted for the 3 day package and I can highly recommend it. Do your own research, go with an open mind and enjoy
  • Fantastic centre. Basic but comfortable accommodation. Good food. Good guides and a great educational program for visitors. A bit more expensive than some other options in Laos but well worth it to use your holiday to contribute to the conservation efforts
  • Amazing for good thing and good idea for next generation... more this project due to support nature
