Why?

A 3-days wildlife tour in Kaeng Krachan National Park is a great way to explore some of the main attractions of the park, and will also give the possibility to see some of the common species. Kaeng Krachan is the largest and one of the best national parks in Thailand, listed as a World Heritage Site. It's home to a wide range of animals including gibbons, langurs, macaques, leopards, clouded leopards, elephants, civets, porcupines and many more. With more than 420 different bird species recorded, many consider the park as the best birdwatching location in Thailand. You won't regret it!

What?

With a 3-day wildlife tour we will be exploring nature from early hours of the day till after dark, focusing mainly on wildlife watching. The itinerary is as follows; daytime safari drives, jungle hiking, night walks, visiting some of the park's main highlights.

Itinerary

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

Day 1, 8 am to 6 - 7 pm

We will start the tour with a slow drive into the park in search for wildlife. And afterwards, we go out for our first jungle hike of the tour.

After lunch at the park restaurant, we continue with some more birding and wildlife watching on foot on the dirt road along a stream.

The late afternoon, we do a safari drive at the lower elevations. Hoping for the larger mammals to show up. You will be returned to your hotel outside the park in the early evening

Day 2, 5 am to 6 - 7 pm

Today we start early, to do a bumpy, but scenic safari drive deeper into the park. Besides looking for the birds and other animals that tend to prefer the higher elevations, you will also get the chance to enjoy the stunning view over the vast forests, sometimes covered under a blanket of mist.

Even though there are no forest trails here, we will walk the road and look for wildlife. You will have a chance to see the uncommon Robinson's Banded langurs, White-handed Gibbons, Dusky Langurs, and more. And the area has some interesting birdlife too.

After a Thai lunch at the park restaurant, we continue to further explore the beautiful forest in search for wildlife. And finally finish the day with a safari drive in search for more wildlife before you will be dropped at your hotel in the early evening.

Day 3, 6 am to 5 pm

On the last day, we spend the morning looking for wildlife and birdlife by car and make stops at various spots along the road near ponds and forest clearings or other interesting habitat.

We visit the park restaurant for lunch. In the afternoon we walk a trail to a cave. And the last hours of the trip are spend on a game drive at the lower elevations of the park to try one last time to spot interesting wildlife before you will be returned to your hotel outside the park.
