Elephant Valley Project

The Elephant Valley Project is one of the largest captive elephant sanctuaries in Asia, set in 1,500 hectares of pristine forest, rivers, grassland, and bamboo groves. With only a small number of resident elephants that means each elephant has more space than any other elephant sanctuary to roam freely in their natural habitat. With the support of the Pnong villagers, the project rescues and treats domestic elephants who have suffered illness or injury.

Your experience starts early in the morning at a cafe in Sen Monorom, from where you travel to the project in a vehicle shared with other travellers. Hike out to the forest to meet the elephants and walk beside them in their natural forest habitat. You can watch them interact with each other in their newly bonded family groups, where they are relearning and showing real elephant behaviour again. Learn about the elephant’s histories, the local people and the unique role they play in protecting these unique animals. Enjoy a deliciously prepared lunch and unwind with a cold drink from the welcoming lounge overlooking the forested valley.

Please be aware that this experience is operated in a group, and numbers tend to be 10 people or less.
