About this trip

 Your tour experience begins with a transportation service pick up from your accommodation between 8:15 am – 9:00 am  then we head off our way and have a short stop at  the popular Ban Xang Hai Village, also known as ‘the whiskey village’. Here you can see the process of making lao lao, the country’s beloved rice whiskey and for some maybe even an early morning sample!

From there we are less than 2kms / 10 minute drive from the 110 hectares property and home to 20 elephants at Manifa Elephant Camp. 

After a few important introductions and a brief orientation, you will get straight into interacting with the Manifa elephants and start “FULL DAY – MAHOUT BASIC PROGRAM“ – get used to being close to and comfortable with one of the 17 elephants.

We enjoy a beautiful buffet style lunch at the restaurant – overlooking the Mekong river.

At about 1 PM, we resume Mahout program until afternoon. In the end of program we take elephants to their resident bamboo forests and then go back to Luang Prabang at about 4:00 PM.

Manifa Travel is an adventure tour operator from Luang Prabang Laos. Our Main office is in the historical area of Luang Prabang city, Sakkaline Rd, Vat Sene village, opposite of Villa Santi hotel.


We had an exceptional and wonderful experience, that was planned and organized by Manifa Travel, according our requests. The elephant camp was truly moving, as the elephants are free to roam around and receive a lot of food and affection. Our interaction with the elephants was great especially for our children. Also, the accommodation in the camp (private bungalows with a great river view) and the food (Yami!) were beyond our expectations. Our other activities were exiting and well organized, including the boat on the Mekong river, the bicycle ride, the kayaking and the track in the fields. Our guide (Mr. Wong) was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and was fluent in English. We highly recommend Manifa Travel and we are thankful for this great experience.
