Reviews for Elephant conservation volunteering in Laos


review 8 Apr 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was very interesting observing and learning about the elephants. Following the elephants up into the forest was exciting, and I loved getting so close to the elephants and getting to touch them.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make sure that you bring an old pair of pants, top, shoes and gloves if you end up doing some wall painting, as you will get paint all over your new clothes. But it's so much fun doing work around the camp, no matter how dirty you get!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I feel that volunteering for the elephant sanctuary in Laos was one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences in my life, which I have no doubt had an impact and benefited, small or large, everyone and everything around us.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Everything was better and more enjoyable than I had anticipated. The surroundings were so peaceful, making you feel completely out of touch with the problems going on around the world. The huts and bathroom facilities were basic yet clean. The food was excellent and healthy. All the staff, including the mahouts, were so friendly and down to earth.
