Laos was once the Kingdom of Lan Xang, translated as the “Land of a Million Elephants”, and these endangered creatures are dear to the hearts of the Lao people. Starting from the delightful town of Luang Prabang, the tour includes a 3 day adventure staying at the respected Elephant Conservation Centre in Sayaboury province. Here you will learn how to care for rescued animals and learn about the critical conservation work being undertaken, whilst taking in stunning surrounds of pristine rivers, paddy fields, local villages and lush tropical forest. Return to Luang Prabang then head south to the wild Champasak province, spending three nights in an isolated and idyllic ecolodge, from where you engage in further interaction with these magnificent creatures. You can also use the lodge as a base for further adventure activities, or for exploring the wider area. The trip then rounds off with a night in the tranquil but sophisticated capital Vientiane.
