The heart of Project Elephant


Base Camp is the name we've given to our Elephant House.

Base Camp is at the heart of every aspect of Project Elephant. It is here where our visitors will experience a sense of adventure and discovery as they are taken on a journey through Asia that will lead them to the beginning of something much bigger.

It is from Base Camp that visitors will learn and be inspired and it is from here that we will provide world class care for our herd, undertake vital research and continue to advance and develop the work of Project Elephant.
