While Laos offers a variety of elephant encounters for travellers, most experiences come at the expense of the animal. EXO Travel is committed to all forms of sustainability and, therefore, only promotes elephant experiences that directly benefit these gentle giants. This full-day visit outside Luang Prabang works in conjunction with a sanctuary that keeps elephant health and welfare as top priority. Begin the day with a boat ride across the Nam Khan River where the elephants and their mahouts await. After learning some essential information about the animals and how to properly interact with them, spend some quality time getting to know them. After bathing and scrubbing them in the river, head into the jungle for an unforgettable elephant walk. Visit some of the region’s most beautiful landscapes before taking part in an interactive mahout demonstration. After experiencing first-hand the surreal bond between elephants and humans, wrap up the day’s encounter with a transfer back to Luang Prabang.
