1-day wildlife tour with night safari in Khao Yai


Besides what a 1 day tour offers, combining one day tour with a night safari well after the dark will give you a chanse to see both diurnal and nocturnal wildlife of Khao Yai National Park.


A 1-day tour will start in the morning and end well after the dark. Activities include hiking in the jungle, safari driving among the roads on search for elephants and other exiting animals, safari drives in the morning and later afternoon, visiting a viewpoint and one of Khao Yai's impressive waterfalls and finally end the day with a night safari.


The itinerary below is just an example and can easily be turned upside down due to length of different activities. We adapt to mother nature and customers interests.

We will meet you at your hotel or other pick-up location we agreed on.

The tour always start around 8-8:30AM with a slow drive through jungle and grasslands in search for wildlife. Once we arrive to the first hiking point we continue the trip in rain forest between huge trees in search for any type of animal.

After lunch the first stop will be Haew Suwat Waterfall known from Leonardio Di Caprio's "The Beach" movie, possibly continue the tour to one of best viewpoints of the national park. Last couple of hours before before the dinner will be an ideal time for searhing elephants.

After the dinner break our tour will end with a night safari in search for nocturnal wildlife, thereafter you will be returned to your hotel or other location we agreed on around 8-9 pm.

Where & when?

Khao Yai National Park is around 2.5 hours from Bangkok, easily accessible with public transportation with minivans being the fastest way. Our private guides will meet you in your hotel in Pak Chong -which is the nearest city- or anywhere between Pak Chong and Khao Yai National Park.

We can arranga taxi from Bangkok on request. It takes 2.5 hours, it costs 2200 THB one way and 3200 THB for a round trip within same day.

The park is open and accessible all year round but for night safaris we strongly recommend to avoid week-ends and public holidays when there are too many vehicles on the roads reducing chance to see animals significantly. The weather can be pretty cool during cold season around November to February, so a sweater is a must!

I booked the full day tour with night safari on Wednesday 12th September 2018. My tour guide's name was Bok and I was very fortunate that he could speak good English and was really friendly.

My day began early, which in hindsight was good as it rained almost the whole day. I was also really lucky to see a wild male elephant and some vipers, hornbills, gibbons, monkeys, deer and even a king cobra before lunchtime.

After lunch, we visited Haew Narok Waterfall, which despite the heavy rain was simply majestic. Bok also took me to search for the famous siamese crocodile which he was able to find despite it carefully hiding itself. We later managed to see Haew Suwat waterfall, before driving to the highest peak of the park. The night safari was a relaxed drive, and despite not seeing anything except porcupines, I enjoyed it nonetheless.

On the way back to the hotel, Bok did me a personal favour by stopping by a cafe to get some food. I was really lucky that I had such a knowledgeable guide who not only demonstrated his skill but also explained to me as much as possible about the wildlife and eco-system inside Khao Yai. I hope to visit again during the dry season next year

We are very satisfied with the wildlife tour guide. The guides are professional and polite. And we even have good meals in jungle! I think every tourist in Kao Yai National Park should attend this kind of activity, or it is hard to find animals and paths. We have wonderful memories here, and with no doubt, we will share the good experiences with our friends!

Biar, the guide, was really detail-objetive. He really knows the environment really good and finds the animals better that anyone.

We had prefer walk trouht the forest more time trying to look for animals and the nocturnal safari wasn´t what we expected.

Jungle tour in the morning was great!

Night safari and water falls were rather a driving than a guided-tour.

Our visit to Khao Yai National Park was everything we dreamt it would be! Our guide was so nice and helpful and helped us track and spot hornbills, monkeys, porcupines, gibbons, and so many other creatures. It was absolutely amazing and we would definitely do it again!
