Private Tour | 1-day wildlife tour with night safari in Khao Yai
Besides what a 1 day tour offers, combining one day tour with a night safari well after the dark will give you a chanse to see both diurnal and nocturnal wildlife of Khao Yai National Park.
A 1-day tour will start in the morning and end well after the dark. Activities include hiking in the jungle, safari driving among the roads on search for elephants and other exiting animals, safari drives in the morning and later afternoon, visiting a viewpoint and one of Khao Yai's impressive waterfalls and finally end the day with a night safari.
The itinerary below is just an example and can easily be turned upside down due to length of different activities. We adapt to mother nature and customers interests.
We will meet you at your hotel or other pick-up location we agreed on.
The tour always start around 8-8:30AM with a slow drive through jungle and grasslands in search for wildlife. Once we arrive to the first hiking point we continue the trip in rain forest between huge trees in search for any type of animal.
After lunch the first stop will be Haew Suwat Waterfall known from Leonardio Di Caprio's "The Beach" movie, possibly continue the tour to one of best viewpoints of the national park. Last couple of hours before before the dinner will be an ideal time for searhing elephants.
After the dinner break our tour will end with a night safari in search for nocturnal wildlife, thereafter you will be returned to your hotel or other location we agreed on around 8-9 pm.
Where & when?
Khao Yai National Park is around 2.5 hours from Bangkok, easily accessible with public transportation with minivans being the fastest way. Our private guides will meet you in your hotel in Pak Chong -which is the nearest city- or anywhere between Pak Chong and Khao Yai National Park.
We can arranga taxi from Bangkok on request. It takes 2.5 hours, it costs 2200 THB one way and 3200 THB for a round trip within same day.
The park is open and accessible all year round but for night safaris we strongly recommend to avoid week-ends and public holidays when there are too many vehicles on the roads reducing chance to see animals significantly. The weather can be pretty cool during cold season around November to February, so a sweater is a must!
Please confirm with us before booking a hotel in Khao Yai area as we don't offer pickup if your hotel is too far away. Or because some hotel owners don't like their guests to be picked up by tour operators.

My family and I enjoyed the tour.
The guide, Ms. Jun, was so friendly and taught us a lot about wild animals such as pig-tailed macaque, gibbon, and elephant.
Especially, we could have very very close view of elephants. It was really exciting.

Lek was very professional, friendly and knowledgable. He had a great eye for spotting wild life and we were lucky to have spotted a few Hornbills, Gibbons and an Elephant.

Excellent guide, with good wildlife knowledge and perfect English. It would have been 5 stars with the elephants, but we cannot be lucky every time I guess :-)

Nice day in the park

Our guide, Bon, was a very knowledgeable guy with very good eyes, so we were able to see hornbills, gibbons, deer, snakes and other birds and insects. Without him we would probably have seen only the deer because they were almost in the middle of the street. And the food for lunch was very delicious.

The tour and the guide was really Well and profesional, but I do not understand why do you allow yo do camping inside a national park, If you allow camping and so Many people inside, the animals are afraid and It os not a national park. Please try to change It.
