3-days wildlife tour in Kaeng Krachan
We currently don't have any guide availability at Kaeng Krachan National Park until further notice.
A 3 day wildlife tour in Kaeng Krachan National Park is a great way for hiking, wildlife watching and visiting main highlights of the park. Kaeng Krachan is the largest and one of best national parks in Thailand. It's home to a wide range of animals including gibbons, langurs, macaques, leopards, clouded leaopards, elephants, civets, porcupines and many more. With more than 420 different bird species recorded, many conciders the park as the best birdwatching location in Thailand. You won't regret it!
With a 3-day wildlife tour we will be exploring the nature from early hours of the day till after dark, focusing mainly on wildlife watching. The itinerary as follows; daytime safari drives, jungle hiking, night walks, visiting some of parks main highlights.
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.

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.

We visited two national park while in Thailand, Khao Yai and Khao Sok. We LOVED them both! At Khao Yai we booked a full day and night safari tour and our guide, Beer, was wonderful! We had so much fun exploring the park with him and learning about the animals we saw. Lunch and dinner were both delicious as well. At Khao Sok we rented a long tail bot for three hours and explored the water. My one recommendation to other would be to get to the pier EARLY. We arrived at 8am and were able to find a boat right away. When we returned at 11am the docks were packed full out people trying to get on boats and ended up having to share with others, whereas we got our own private long tail. Both parks were beautiful in their own way and I hope to return some day!

We arranged the 1.5 jungle tour with Thai National Parks. Communication by mail went very smooth, accurate information and swift replies. The tour operator arranged taxi transport from and back to Bangkok. One was our tourguide for the bat cave . She was very friendly spoke good english and was as enthusiastic as we were to see the bats. We took great pictures and enjoyed talking to her about Thailand and the Thai people. For the next day we had Tata as our guide. He spoke good English and he succeeded in showing us the great hornbills, the different monkeys, snakes, beautiful birds, the crocodile, spiders and a group of elephants with baby elephants. We had fantastic lunch made by local ladies. We enjoyed walking through the real jungle with its wonderful vegetation and animal sounds. Without Tata we would not have seen any animal. We either walked past them and he showed us where to look and ofcourse he knows his way around the huge park so he took us to the right places. It was great to see and feel his passion for nature enjoying the trip himself and being as euphoric about seeing the animals as we were. This was a highlight in our trip to Thailand and we certainly recommend it to everyone!

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.
Christophe and Isabelle
