The tour was absolutely amazing! Not only did we have a very competent and kind tour guide (Chum), we also saw several (rare) species as elephants and a boar. The tour guide spoke English quite well and knew a lot about the wildlife, trees and plants. She did everything in her power to make the tour as great as possible.

We had an amazing tour! Before we set out, we made a list of things we wanted to see, e.g. hornbills, elephants and gibbons, and our guide showed us all of it and plenty more, like different spiders, snakes and the indochinese water dragon! She knew all about the ecosystem and explained us a lot of interesting facts about the species in Kao Yai.

The most important thing however, was that our guide had a special eye for the needs and interests of our kids! That way, it was a memorable experience for the whole family!

Thank you!!

Very knowledgeable guide. Spent a lot of time in the jeep, driving from place to place. We signed up for the 2 day but 1 day plus night safari is amble. Our guide left us for long periods, I was hoping for more local information and to get my teenage daughter more engaged.

My friend and I really enjoyed the 2 days at the National Park. Our guide, Tata, is very knowledgeable, patient and can spot many animals. We saw gibbons,monkeys, hornbills, bee eaters, snakes, deers, porcupines, insects, birds etc. The best part was seeing 4 elephants over 2 days, thanks to Tata’s relentless effort as he knew that was top of our wish list. Thank you Tata, you made our day!

Jay was a fantastic and determined guide with the most impressive eyesight ever! He could spot animals, reptiles, birds and even insects from afar. Jay is also a very thoughtful guide. We had a very enjoyable time with him leading the way.

We had Tata as our guide. He was excellent: knowledgable and informative with a real lightness of touch; high standard of English and charming and fun too; he readily engaged our sons aged 12 and 10 as well as the more adult members of our party; and finally, brilliant at spotting all sorts of fascinating creatures. We thoroughly recommend Tata.

My 2-day trip to Khao Yai was excellent. Our guide Tata was extremely knowledgable on the local fauna and flora and went out of his way to ensure we saw the animals we wanted to see. We were lucky enough to see Great Hornbill, Elephants, giant otters and both black and white gibbons.

I highly recommend going on a guided safari in the beautiful Khao Yai. Photos from my visit are here -
