This study aims to determine the potential of fresh water swamp forest as alternative ecotourism of Su-matran elephants (Elephas maximus sumatranus). The data collection of flora was done by the printed path method, with sampling intensity (IS) 10% so that obtained 34 observation plots; then elephants behaviors were taken at 07.00 - 17.00 WIB for 3 days. The data behaviors of elephants were recorded using a sampling scan method, for 60 minutes by recording the incidence of behavior within 60 seconds. Data were analyzed by calculating the important value index, the Shannon-Wiener diversity in-dex, and descriptif analysis. The results showed that there were 25 types of vegetation with 5 species that have the highest important index value. The diversity of vegetation types based on Shannon- Wiener's diversity index is moderate, 99% of species found are natural feeds favored by Sumatran ele-phants. Most of the elephant activity is eating (43%), 13% grouping, 12% rest, exploring as much as 15%, and salting 4%. The management can do reforestation to increase the diversity of vegetation type, especially the Sumatran elephant's natural food species, so that its existence can support the preserva-tion of elephant and educational tourism based on Sumatran elephant conservation.
