Unforgettable Tours

We have several, unique tour options to choose from which are all exciting! We offer tours for different levels of experience. From challenging off road E-Bike adventures, to intimate and educational, non riding elephant experiences.


Focusing on Individual Experience”

At “Chateau Orientale”, our promise is to provide our guests a very personal experience with our elephants; experienced individually or in small groups, enjoying an intimate interlude with these magnificent animals.

Our very own “elephant team” was recently freed from an existence of harsh drudgery in the logging industry.

Through gentle and playful methods we guarantee you the start of a lifelong love for the Asian Elephant!

“Chateau Orientale” is here to continue a responsible tourism operation that offers the highest level of elephant care, food requirements, hygiene and environmental enrichment.

“Chateau Orientale” ensures local community benefit through all parts of their business including sustainable production of elephant food.

“Chateau Orientale” deals fairly with land-owners of properties where the elephants might browse at night time or others whose land might be crossed by the elephant trails.
