Located on a zone with mix of four different biogeographic zone, Huai Kha Khaeng is home to many endangered and endemic species. It's the best protected area in the country, the area where it is located is the largest protected area in entire mainland Southeast Asia. Adding the fact that the sanctuary is not known much by local or foreign tourists makes it a highly interesting destination for wildlife enthusiasts.

Our wildlife tours are private, includes safari drives, hiking in the jungle and patiently waiting at wildlife observation towers. The sanctuary regulations restricts any activities after sunset so we won't be able to offer any night safaris.
