We had a wonderful time over the two days with an excellent guide who is so knowledgeable and passionate about the animals and nature. We were very well looked after and felt our guide's enthusiasm for making sure that we explored and experienced all we could -responsibly and safely- in this beautiful park. It was a very memorable experience and we would highly recommend this tour.

We had an enjoyable 2 day safari in Khao Yai with our guide Lek. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out lots of species of birds and other wildlife, and he seemed to know the best places to visit. He had an excellent spotter scope which he set up on the distant birds, which helped me to find them with my camera. We saw: Monitor lizard, deer, Great Hornbill, another species of hornbill, gibbons, a viper, many many colourful birds, and one male elephant. On the second day we finished off at the bat cave where we watched the thousands of bats emerging, which was well worth seeing. Lunch was great on both days. We also arranged our transfer from/to Bangkok through the National Park, which worked very well.

Joom was an absolutely perfect guide! We saw so many things with her that we could have never seen ourselves. The addition of the telescope allowed for brilliant pictures and she was so keen for us to have an amazing experience. I fully recommend this tour, it was a truly wonderful time.

Jum was a fantastic guide and made sure we had a fabulous 2 days. How she managed to spot even the smallest bird or snake as we drove along I don’t know! We saw gibbons, families of macaque monkeys, a rare leopard cat, porcupines, a civet cat, and many birds and lizards among other things. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
