Our Elephants 

So that they can earn their own living in close harmony with nature & humans, cared for by professionals and away from abusive work logging work.

Our Community – especially in the rural areas 
We create jobs in many different sectors.  For example: elephant care takers and food suppliers, restaurant service, house keepers, maintenance staff, boat drivers, chauffeurs, tour guides, gardeners and farmers. This ensures a varied local economy that includes many different skill sets.

Our Tourism Industry in Laos
Because we offer unique and attractive activities as well as a very high level of customer satisfaction, especially outside the busy tourism areas; we help to create extended visits to Laos.  This benefits many individual service providers throughout Laos and creates a more sustainable tourism industry.

Our Natural Habitat
By trekking down our “Trail of Falls” trail, you contribute to our nature conservation project (wildlife habitat), which sets an example for the local community. They see that money can be earned and jobs can be created in a sustainable way, without destroying precious natural habitats. This also means that they can keep alive the skills they already have.
