Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp

Visit Kalaw's Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp, where you can walk with the resident retired logging elephants and help out at bath time!

The Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp gives you the opportunity to interact with these magnificent creatures, safe in the knowledge that this is an animal-friendly environment operated with the principles of sustainable tourism in mind.

Surrounded by the stunning, forested scenery of Kalaw, whilst at the elephant camp you will meet, feed, wash and interact with the seven resident elephants - who are cared for by the mahouts (elephant caretakers) and the resident vet. These elephants have been rescued from the logging industry - having been "retired" by the government - and are now living out their senior years in the peaceful sanctuary of Green Hill Valley.

The camp is family-owned and aims not only to provide a refuge for ex-working elephants, but also to provide support to local villages, preserve the natural environment and develop working opportunities for people within the region. Every visitor is invited to plant a tree - so you can leave a positive mark on this beautiful region before your onward journey.
