Our 2.5-day Khao Yai tour is perfect if you wish to start your adventure on a afternoon on first day of your arrival. It includes all general activities, visiting the major highlights and with a bit luck we may encounter wild elephants and/or other exciting animals.
The tour will start around 3:30pm on first day and comtinue in the wilderness from early morning until the evening on the second and third days.
Activities will include wildlife watching, hiking in the jungle, visiting the major waterfalls and viewpoints, swimming in a clear spring, daytime safari drives, a night safari drive and finally visiting Khao Yai's famous bat cave for watching "the river of bats".

Itineraries tends to get turned upside down, the following is just an example;
Day 1 - From 3:30 p.m.
The tour will start with two activities outside the national park's boundaries. The first stop will be a clear spring for a refreshing swim. We will than move to a cave where millions of bats will stream out to start their daily hunt for food at the sunset.
We will start with a slow drive through the national park on search for gibbons and other animals followed by a hiking through the jungle.
In the afternoon we will visit Haew Narok Waterfall which is Khao Yai's highest waterfall at the south end of the park. On the late afternoon we will continue exploring the park where elephants forage regularly.
After the dinner we will continue the tour with a night safari, by using spotlights we will search for nocturnal animals.
The last day will start with hiking in the jungle until lunch. On the afternoon we'll visit Haew Suwat Waterfall known from Leonardio Di Caprio's "The Beach" movie and possibly visiting a viewpoint with a wide vista over the jungle. Late on the afternoon we will do a final daytime safari in search for wild elephants and other wildlife. You'll be returned to your hotel around dinner time.

Tata is a very good guide, he know what „farang“ looking for. It was a very good day trip with him. Even havy rain was not bad for our trip. He guide us in the forest, show us interesting animals and places. Even food was good. The night safary with the ranger, I never would do this again. They were not realy interested to show us somthing special. Maybe next time I wanna ask, if Tata can bring us to the bat Cave, think is more interesting than night safari with the rangers. I will come again with this company.

We visited two national park while in Thailand, Khao Yai and Khao Sok. We LOVED them both! At Khao Yai we booked a full day and night safari tour and our guide, Beer, was wonderful! We had so much fun exploring the park with him and learning about the animals we saw. Lunch and dinner were both delicious as well. At Khao Sok we rented a long tail bot for three hours and explored the water. My one recommendation to other would be to get to the pier EARLY. We arrived at 8am and were able to find a boat right away. When we returned at 11am the docks were packed full out people trying to get on boats and ended up having to share with others, whereas we got our own private long tail. Both parks were beautiful in their own way and I hope to return some day!

We arranged the 1.5 jungle tour with Thai National Parks. Communication by mail went very smooth, accurate information and swift replies. The tour operator arranged taxi transport from and back to Bangkok. One was our tourguide for the bat cave . She was very friendly spoke good english and was as enthusiastic as we were to see the bats. We took great pictures and enjoyed talking to her about Thailand and the Thai people. For the next day we had Tata as our guide. He spoke good English and he succeeded in showing us the great hornbills, the different monkeys, snakes, beautiful birds, the crocodile, spiders and a group of elephants with baby elephants. We had fantastic lunch made by local ladies. We enjoyed walking through the real jungle with its wonderful vegetation and animal sounds. Without Tata we would not have seen any animal. We either walked past them and he showed us where to look and ofcourse he knows his way around the huge park so he took us to the right places. It was great to see and feel his passion for nature enjoying the trip himself and being as euphoric about seeing the animals as we were. This was a highlight in our trip to Thailand and we certainly recommend it to everyone!

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.
Christophe and Isabelle
