3-days wildlife tour in Kaeng Krachan

We currently don't have any guide availability at Kaeng Krachan National Park until further notice.

Why?

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!

What?

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.

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.

We had an amazing 2-day tour experience! We can't overstate how much it exceeded our expectations! We ended up seeing every single thing that was promised, and so much more including tons of animals and birds. Our guide was excellent and knew the answers to all our questions. We ate great food and the tour was adjusted to accommodate the types of things we wanted to see. We would recommend this tour to everyone!

Local partner – We're happy to read your positive review. That's what we are doing it for, to make the guests have a great time. You are always welcome to return ;-)

Booking this tour was a great decision. It was so easy and so much fun. We were picked up at our hostel in Pak Chong and driven to the park. It was just us and our guide/driver. We got to see every inch of Khao Yai, run after gibbons, spot different birds, and even do a night safari where we saw elephants! We felt very safe and taken care of- great value and the passion of our guide (Tata) only made it better. Thank so much- we will definitely be recommending to any friends heading that way!

Local partner – Thanks Laura for your kind words!

Tata and Boo were my guides for the day. This trip exceeded my expectations. Tata and Boo knew just were to go to show us various wildlife. I marveled at Tata's skill with bird calls, and really appreciated all that I learned. They both clearly cared about the park and the animals. That shone through. It's not just a job. I will definitely recommend this to others and will name these two for reference.

Local partner – Dear Chanda, Thank you for taking the time to sent us your review. And great to hear our guides did their 'job' well ;-) The passion for the nature and wildlife is the first and most important quality we look for in a guide. The guests will feel that, and it is 'contagious' ;-) Thanks for booking with us!

A really peaceful day in nature. Jay is an excellent interpreter of the wildlife in the park and we so enjoyed the trek. Without a guide it would be very difficult to navigate and to find the animals and birds. One thing that could help to make the trip even more memorable were if Jay's long lens photos were available. I wholeheartedly recommend others to book the tour with Jay and believe it can be adjusted to all levels of interest.

Local partner – Thanks Ralph Paul for your kind words. Glad to hear you had a lovely day!

This is one of the best nature tour I have taken, not only because the animals were gracious enough to greet us. Our guide Tata was excellent. Knowledgeable, friendly, open, and Michel more. Tks Tata for making my last days in Thailand so enjoyable. Hoping to welcome you one day in Vancouver.

Local partner – Thanks Pascaline! Sounds like our guide did a great job again (as always ;-) ). If you ever return to Thailand you know where to find us.

We booked our trip for Kao Yai for friday 24th. Communication during booking was very clear. We asked to do the trip with other people; to reduce the costs, which wasn't a problem. Our guide (Tata or Tantan, don't know how to write it), came to pick us up at our hotel; which was very easy. On our way into the park; we already saw a few makaaks and the great hornbill. We picked up a German couple; they we're really cool. In the morning we went for a 2,5h hike. Tata was really passionate about nature. He was funny; answered questions and said some really interesting cool stuff. He knew the hiding hole of a scorpion; which he triggered and then put on our hands; he had an eye for detail and showed us the birds and the reptiles, etc. We even saw the crocodile in the water! Lunch was really good; where we saw the waterfall. In the afternoon we went on a chase with the car because they were signs that one of the male elephants was spotted; so we actually saw him! Checking a wild elephant; crossed off of our bucket list! Then we went to visit the scenery; which was a beauuuutiful view of the park; were we saw some sort of wild Thai goats that all of the sudden with a lot or noise showed up. The trip was really unforgettable and was one of the highlights of Thailand; I'd recommend it to everybody!!

Local partner – Dear Stefanie & Bieke, Thank you for your kind feedback. We are happy to hear you seem to have had a great experience. Even seen an elephant and the rare Indochinese Serow (the mountain goat). Very lucky for just a one day visit. We will thank our guide Tata in name of you! Thanks!
