Somnuk Elephant Camp is located in Sai Yok district, Kanchanaburi, Thailand. The camp is named after the owner, Mr. Somnuk Sudchana who is a well-known mahout in Thailand and has been spending his life with elephants for more than 45 years.
With the collaboration with a group of conservation biologist, Somnuk is on the process of transiting his camp's concept of “elephant riding” to “a creative, responsible and sustainable tourism”.
Therefore, the camp is launching a new elephant friendly and educational day activity program (from 10 am. – 3.30 pm.) at the Banana Orchard, locates just less than 10 minutes away from the original camp. The program is created for visitors who wish to see, interact and get to know scientific facts as well as local wisdom about the Asian elephant. The activities are run by a group of elephant educators who are equipped with knowledge and English speaking language.
If once in your life, you want to see, touch, enjoy, and gain knowledge about the Asian elephant from a quality visitor program, book your visit at Somnuk Elephant Camp (the Banana Orchard) and you won't be disappointed.
