OVERVIEW

Spend your summer exploring some of the remote regions of Southeast Asia where the elephants roam. In Cambodia, the lush Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary will be your base, studying the behavior, ecology, and welfare needs of the endangered Asian elephant. Visit the vibrant city of Phnom Penh and the ancient temples of Angkor to explore the history and culture of Cambodia.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
  • In Thailand, delve into human-wildlife conflict and conservation pressures and examine elephant management practices while you are based in a village bordering KuiBuri National Park. Complete your journey in the vibrant hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Stay at the Elephant Valley Project (EVP) in the forested Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary to observe semi-wild, rehabilitated, Asian elephants from meters away as they forage, bathe, and interact with each other in a protected setting.
  • Stay at Bring the Elephants Home (BTEH) in homestays in Ruam Thai village next to the world reknown Kuiburi National Park where you are guaranteed to see wild elephants on safari tours and when crop-raiding.
