An ideal way to explore the Thai countryside, an elephant safari in Hua Hin offers an unforgettable outdoor adventure. A great experience for the whole family, elephant safaris take passengers on a fascinating trek through jungles, mountains and forest trails aboard these gentle giants who can navigate the bumpy terrain with ease. While passengers are seated on wooden seats atop the elephant, a mahout usually rides up front on the neck. Those heading to the region and searching for luxury Hua Hin hotels can stay at Anantara Hua Hin, Thailand. One of the best Hua Hin resorts, this modern property also offers such outdoor activities as elephant safaris.
