We had a great 2 days trip with our guide named Beer. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about all animals in the park, and his English is very clear.

We were lucky to see elephants twice, hornbills, two kinds of gibbons, porcupines, civet cat, and many more wild animals. Thank you again!

We have been on many guided nature tours in many parts of the world, and I can say without reservation that Tata was the very best guide I have ever had. He is kind, funny, considerate, and extremely skilled at finding animals we would never see on our own. In 2 days we saw dozens of species, including snakes, monitor lizards, civets, porcupines, an elephant, 2 species of primates (including extended time with gibbons, which was remarkable and moving), and more species of birds than we could count, including several types of hornbills. The entire experience was fabulous, through and through. Highest possible recommendation!

It is such an amazing experience at Khao Yai National Park. We decided for a long time between self vs guided-tour and we were really glad that we picked the latter. We definitely recommend to do the guided tours as the guides are very experienced and trained in spotting wildlife in these jungles, they have amazing senses in sight and hearing and they know the best places where the animals will likely appear. Our guide is Jum and she is such a happy and fearless person, we had a great time under her care. She really did her best to scout wildlife at every moment possible so that we could see a variety of wildlife and the elephants. I'd love to come back here again :)
