Elephant Conservation Center, Sayaboury

#5 of 57 in Wildlife in Laos
A true passion and love for animals drives Elephant Conservation Center, which allows visitors to get in touch with elephants, observing their routine and learning about them through educational tours and volunteer work. Launched in 2011, the center is dedicated to the protection and conservation of the endangered Asian elephant, the national animal of Laos. The complex contains several medical and rehabilition facilities; you can witness elephants recovering in the training center, or visit the hospital. Spend a night in a small bungalow and join the team to get a greater insight in the life of the gentle giants, with the center providing stays of one or more nights.

  • A beautiful experience ! A great project that take into account the well being of the elephants but also of the local and the impact on the ecosystem. Really pedagogic and interesting. The people working there are really nice and interesting. The place itself is really beautiful (you can swim in the lake and watch the sunset on a hammock, etc.).
  • It is more of an educational experience rather than entertainment. The visit was very interesting and different from any other attraction that I did in this part of the world. I wish the good luck in creating a new generation of elephants.
