Our Guide, Jay was fabulous. His knowledge about the jungle is elaborate, and he is extremely friendly and accommodating. I will recommend your site to friends and possibly come back to the jungle myself. Thank you so much for such an amazing trip!

The day trip is fun but tiring if you have kids in tow. The night safari can give it a miss, not worth the time even if it is free.

It’s a good adventure
Khao yai national park has a wonderful view.
But it’s sadly we weren’t meet the elephant.
We will support it to our friend
And the taxi driver is professional. 👍👍

I was very impressed by prompt communication. Every email or question was replyed immediately, even at the midnight. Therefore, the booking of the day tour was very efficient, very well done.
The tour was well organised. We were a little disappointed not to see that much animals, because of the rain season maybe. Otherwise, kids loved night safari. We enjoyed very much the nature of national park thanks to your guided tour.

A fantastic trip! We only had one day to explore the park and our guide was excellent at adapting the itinerary to suit us as well as a great guide to the animals of Khao Yai. I’ve been on wildlife tours all over the world and this was a very high quality tour! Thank you to our guide Beer!

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.
