Itinerary

Because it is difficult to plan in the wild, our itineraries often gets turned upside down. The following itinerary should be considered as an example;

Day 1 (Depending on your arrival time we start between 7-9 a.m.)

The tour will start with a scenic slow drive through the park in search for wildlife and continue with a short jungle hike. After the lunch at camp's restaurant we will continue explore the road up and down by car on search for more wildlife. After the dinner we will set up tents on camping area and continue with a night walk in the vicinity of the camp site in search for nocturnal species like snakes, civets, porcupines, birds and more. We recommend you have a flashlight with you.

Day 2 (5 a.m. to 9 p.m.)

Starting from around 5am in the morning, we'll drive all the way till the end of dirt road and from there start hiking a moderate to difficult trail. You'll need to be fit for this hike as the starting elevation is 650m above the sea level and the deeper we get into the jungle we will gradually descend to 200m above the sea level. Half way through the trail we will have a lunch break at Thor Thip waterfall where it is also possible to cool off in the water.

In the late afternoon we will start drive back to the base camp and arrive there when it gets dark. After the dinner, if you have any energy left from the hiking we could continue with another nigh walking with flashlights in hand.

Day 3 (5 a.m. - 5 p.m.)

We will start the last day with another early drive till we reach a trail head for new jungle hike following one of tributes to Pranburi River. You're likely to get wet feets as we will walk along the water stream and cross the stream occasionally. Our driver will meet us at the end of the trail and we will head back to the camp site for lunch. After lunch we will pack our stuff and in the late afternoon we will start the last drive heading out of the park. The finishing time is flexible depending on where you have to go afterwards.
