3-days wildlife tour in Huai Kha Khaeng
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.
The sanctuary is not for the typical tourist, it's for pure wildlife watching, there aren't any relaxing attractions. If that's what you are after, our wildlife tour in Huai Kha Khaen is the perfect choise!
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.
The itinerary below is only an example. The program may change depending on your interests or how much time spend on different locations.
Day 1 - Start from 6:30 a.m.
The tour will start with a slow safari drive into the park in search for wildlife. After a short hiking we will reach a wildlife watchtower with good view over the riverbank of the main river and spend the morning there. Later on we will continue with a slow safari drive towards the park restaurant for lunch and enjoy the local birdlife.
Our tour is available for limited group sizes only. We only offer tours of multiple days.
We will spend the afternoon by visiting another watch tower and finish the day by a late afternoon safari drive out from the sanctuary and take you to tents on the designated campground.
We will start the morning with a slow safari drive and continue by foot in jungle in search for primates and other animals. Afther the lunch we'll do another safari drive and spent the rest of the afternoon in a watchtower.
We will start the day with a visit to a watchtower for another stake out. We may do another short hiking or slow safari drive and end the tour at 2 p.m.
When & where?
Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary lies 320km from Bangkok in Nakhon Sawan and Uthai Thani provinces in the west of Thailand. Our 3 day tour start from Uthai Thani or if booked in combination with a multi-day tour in Khao Yai National Park, we offer free transport between Khao Yai and Huai Kha Khaeng.
The sanctuary is open year-round. The best time to visit is towards the end of the cool and dry winter months when temperatures start to rise, causing water levels to decreasing and forcing wildlife to seek water streams.
This is a private tour. You will explore the park with a private guide, and no others will join you; the best way to explore nature!

Our guide has such love and passion for the nature which is a great learning experience for us. He speaks really good English which made communication seamless. It was a really fruitful trip thanks to him!

Our Guide, Jay was fabulous. His knowledge about the jungle is elaborate, and he is extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your site to friends and possibly come back to the jungle myself. Thank you so much for such an amazing trip!

The day trip is fun but tiring if you have kids in tow. The night safari can give it a miss, not worth the time even if it is free.

It’s a good adventure
Khao yai national park has a wonderful view.
But it’s sadly we weren’t meet the elephant.
We will support it to our friend
And the taxi driver is professional. 👍👍

I was very impressed by prompt communication. Every email or question was replyed immediately, even at the midnight. Therefore, the booking of the day tour was very efficient, very well done.
The tour was well organised. We were a little disappointed not to see that much animals, because of the rain season maybe. Otherwise, kids loved night safari. We enjoyed very much the nature of national park thanks to your guided tour.

A fantastic trip! We only had one day to explore the park and our guide was excellent at adapting the itinerary to suit us as well as a great guide to the animals of Khao Yai. I’ve been on wildlife tours all over the world and this was a very high quality tour! Thank you to our guide Beer!

Tata is a very good guide, he know what „farang“ looking for. It was a very good day trip with him. Even havy rain was not bad for our trip. He guide us in the forest, show us interesting animals and places. Even food was good. The night safary with the ranger, I never would do this again. They were not realy interested to show us somthing special. Maybe next time I wanna ask, if Tata can bring us to the bat Cave, think is more interesting than night safari with the rangers. I will come again with this company.
