Photo tours in Khao Yai


This package gives exciting possibilities for beginner and professional wildlife photograpers to get close to animals they look for. Some of frequently seen animals are gibbons, hornbills, macaques, deers but also sometimes elephants and many more.

For enough time with photography we highly recommend multi-day trips to increase chance to find more animals, but if the time is limited, we can arrange day tours on request as well.


Our photo tours are private tours which means no others will join us. As an expert you know it is impossible to plan for right shot, so our itineraries will be adapted to your needs, they are flexible. Prior to the tour we will discuss your needs and decide what areas to visit accordingly.

If you're not after anything specific, just general photography, we'll try to find a good balance between landscape and wildlife photography for you.

About: 1-day wildlife tour with night safari in Khao Yai

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.

About: Kui Buri elephant safari, half day

By: , Poland | posted Sat 17 Mar, 2018

Visiting Kui Buri National Park with our 2 kids (1 year and 3 years) was an amazing experience and definitely highlight of our holiday in Thailand. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patient with spotting animals. In fact, we believe that he was the reason why we were able to see 10 elephants and several other animals during our trip. Additionally we highly assess their flexibility. They knew that we’re family with little kids so they sugessted we can make our trip shorter as March tends to be hot and animals would probably show up only later in the afternoon. This way we saved our kids an hour waiting in the sun while still saw many animals. Our kids were crazy about this trip!

Tour operator's response

Thanks Marta for your kind words.

Good to hear you and your kids enjoyed the trip in Kui Buri.

About: 1.5-days wildlife tour in Khao Yai

We had 1.5 day trip and it was amazing. In the first day we saw millions of bats, really crazy. The second full day was inside the park with very nice and super professional guide that took us into the wild jungle of the National Park and knew exactly where to find all the wild life. I’ve had perfect English and we were only 4 people in the tour so it was just perfect. Thank you Jay (we called him “National Jay-ographic” 😝) and thanks for Thai National Park tours. It was really nice organized!
