1.5-days wildlife tour in Khao Yai

Why?

Our 1.5-day Khao Yai tour is another alternative for a short trip, perfect if you wish to start your adventure on a afternoon on first day of your arrival.

What?

The 1.5 day tour includes wildlife watching, hiking in jungle, morning and late afrernoon safari drives, visiting one of major waterfalls, visiting a viewpoint, swimming in clear spring and wathing millions of bats leaving a cave.

Itinerary

Our trips starts and ends daily at your hotel or other pick-up or return location we agreed on.

Our itineraries normally gets turned upside down; it is impossible to plan exactly, the following should be considered as an example itinerary:

Day 1 - From 3:30 p.m.

We start the first day right outside the national park boundries by swim in a clear spring and later during the sunset watch millions of migrating bats flow out from a cave.

Day 2

We will start the morning by doing a driving safari along the road, looking for gibbons, hornbills and other wildlife. Afterwards we continue by foot into the jungle.

After the lunch break we'll visit Haew Suwat Waterfall, better known from Leonardio Di Caprio's "The Beach" movie and possibly visit a viewpoint with a wide vista over the national park. Late on the afternoon we will end the tour by driving safari in search for elephants.

In the early evening you will be returned to Pak Chong or to your hotel.

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.

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!

It is possible to spend the night in the park, but lodging is not included in the price.

How much?

Our tours are private trips, not joint tours, means no other people will join you. Our tours are all-inclusive except for the accommodation.

Hello,

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.

Thank you!

Greetings,

Christophe and Isabelle

I loved my time in Khao Yai from the time my guide Jun picked me up until they (Jun and my driver) walked me back to the lobby. It is a beautiful park and a true natural treasure. I do hope to return someday. My guide and driver were both wonderful, friendly and caring. Since I can not climb stairs much less down to waterfalls, I was grateful they went out of their way to find things for me to see and do. It was definately a day I won't forget and for which I thank them.

We had a wonderful day in Khao Yai! Our guide and our driver were really professional, passionate about their work and really friendly. They did the best to show us as much as possible about animals and nature in the park. We saw monkeys, gibbons, an elephant, a water dragon, snakes and lizards and during the night safari porcupines, flying squirrels and deers. I highly recommend this trip!

Many thanks to Jum and Gaeo for the wonderful trip. We book an one-day safari with night tour. This was the first time we were in the jungle and it was thrilling. Jum has a lot of knowledge which was very interesting to us. We saw animals we usually would have overlooked. We had nice foods, snack and plenty of water because Jum and Gaeo took care of us. They brought a telescope and binoculars which were essential for seeing the wildlife. We wish Jum and Gaeo all the best and fully recommended joining their tour.

I recently traveling to Thailand for about a week and had the opportunity to spend one of the days during out trip exploring Khao Yai National Park with Ton as our tour guide. I can honestly say that our day to the park was the highlight of my trip!

Ton was extremely knowledgable about the park and its wildlife, while also being a kind and fun tour guide throughout the day. Ton helped us see a wide variety of birds, a number of snakes and lizards, as well as quite a view mammals throughout the day as we drove around in a safari vehicle and did some hiking. I had also recently purchased a new camera that I am still learning how to use, and Ton was extremely kind and went about and beyond in helping me to use my camera to get some great photos of the animals that we were seeing!

I would highly recommend a visit to Khao Yai and a tour with Ton to anyone going to Thailand who enjoys wildlife and the outdoors.
