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!

We had a wonderful time in the Khao Yai National Park, due to our friendly guide and the driver. We saw a lot of wild animals in the jungle. We are very happy to have asked for a private one-day tour. Our guide knew so much about the animals, photographing and all aspects of the parc a visitor would like to know.
Our thanks to "Beer" and "Nat" for this life experience!
We wish the team all the best for the future. We also thank for protecting and taking care of the animals in the parc.

I loved my time in Khao Yai from the time my guide Jun picked me up until they (Jun and my driver) walked me back to the lobby. It is a beautiful park and a true natural treasure. I do hope to return someday. My guide and driver were both wonderful, friendly and caring. Since I can not climb stairs much less down to waterfalls, I was grateful they went out of their way to find things for me to see and do. It was definately a day I won't forget and for which I thank them.

We had a wonderful day in Khao Yai! Our guide and our driver were really professional, passionate about their work and really friendly. They did the best to show us as much as possible about animals and nature in the park. We saw monkeys, gibbons, an elephant, a water dragon, snakes and lizards and during the night safari porcupines, flying squirrels and deers. I highly recommend this trip!

Many thanks to Jum and Gaeo for the wonderful trip. We book an one-day safari with night tour. This was the first time we were in the jungle and it was thrilling. Jum has a lot of knowledge which was very interesting to us. We saw animals we usually would have overlooked. We had nice foods, snack and plenty of water because Jum and Gaeo took care of us. They brought a telescope and binoculars which were essential for seeing the wildlife. We wish Jum and Gaeo all the best and fully recommended joining their tour.

I recently traveling to Thailand for about a week and had the opportunity to spend one of the days during out trip exploring Khao Yai National Park with Ton as our tour guide. I can honestly say that our day to the park was the highlight of my trip!
Ton was extremely knowledgable about the park and its wildlife, while also being a kind and fun tour guide throughout the day. Ton helped us see a wide variety of birds, a number of snakes and lizards, as well as quite a view mammals throughout the day as we drove around in a safari vehicle and did some hiking. I had also recently purchased a new camera that I am still learning how to use, and Ton was extremely kind and went about and beyond in helping me to use my camera to get some great photos of the animals that we were seeing!
I would highly recommend a visit to Khao Yai and a tour with Ton to anyone going to Thailand who enjoys wildlife and the outdoors.

Visiting Kui Buri National Park with our 2 kids (1 year and 3 years) was an amazing experience and definitely highlight of our holiday in Thailand. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patient with spotting animals. In fact, we believe that he was the reason why we were able to see 10 elephants and several other animals during our trip. Additionally we highly assess their flexibility. They knew that we’re family with little kids so they sugessted we can make our trip shorter as March tends to be hot and animals would probably show up only later in the afternoon. This way we saved our kids an hour waiting in the sun while still saw many animals. Our kids were crazy about this trip!
