We'll try to proof tigers still roam in Thailand. Chances to proof it by an actual sighting will be very rare, but we'll do our best to show you some tracks.

Why to go on wildlife safari?

** This tour is currently not available **
Huai Kha Khaeng has it all; lots of endangered animals call this sanctuary their home. It's the best protected area in the country, probably even in whole Southeast Asia. Though the battle to protect species like the Tiger still goes on daily.

Few tourists visit this place; it's not a park for everyone! It's pure wildlife watching, no relaxing waterfalls. If that's what you are after, our Wildlife Safari is perfect for you!

What we do on safaris in Huai Kha Khaeng?

Our wildlife safari contains safari drives, and jungle hikes, but consist mostly of patiently waiting at wildlife observation towers; a quite passive tour. The sanctuary restricts any activities after sunset.

Huai Kha Khaeng is one of the few places where you have a reasonable chance to see the endangered Banteng. From the observation towers, we can observe them without disturbing them.



Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Safari  |  ITINERARY

Often enough, our itineraries get turned upside down; it is impossible to plan in nature, but here follows an example itinerary.

Day 1 (06:30AM to ±19:00PM)

We'll start the tour with a slow safari drive into the park in search for wildlife. After a short walk we reach a wildlife watching tower where we quietly watch the banks of the main river. After spending the morning at the tower we'll continue with a safari drive heading to the camp ground to set up our camp before heading to the park restaurant for lunch while enjoying the local birdlife. In the afternoon we'll visit another observation tower waiting for wildlife to show up, and we'll finish the day with a late afternoon drive to our camp. We spend the night at the camp inside the park.

Day 2 (06:30AM to ±19:00PM)

This morning we'll start again with a slow drive, continued by a beautiful hike in the jungle. A different kind of forest increases the chance to see e.g. primates. After lunch, we'll do another drive and spend the late afternoon in a observation tower, before heading back to our camp.

Day 3 (06:30AM to ±14:00PM)

The last day, we'll start with an early game drive and visit to one of the towers for another stake out. Afterwards we pack up our camp and leave the park after lunch. The tour ends at 14:00PM.

Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary - When & Where?

The area where we operate our wildlife safaris in Huai Kha Khaeng lies 320km from Bangkok, near Uthai Thani in the West of Thailand. The safaris start from Uthai Thani.

Huai Kha Khaeng sees very few visitors, and that together with the presence of wildlife makes it highly interesting.

The wildlife sanctuary is open year-round. The end of the cool and dry winter months is most likely the best time of year to visit when temperatures start to rise and water levels are low forcing wildlife to visit the limited water supplies available.

Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Safari - What are the costs?

Our wildlife safaris are only available on private base, and for limited group sizes. We only offer safaris of multiple days.

** At this moment we do not have a guide in Huai Kha Khaeng.
Our apologies! **

We recommend you to take a look at our tours in Khao Yai, Kui Buri, or Kaeng Krachan. Khao Yai is the best option in Thailand for general wildlife watching. Of all the parks in the country we generally see the most wildlife in Khao Yai. However, Kui Buri is the best place if you specifically wish to see wild elephants. Kaeng Krachan is generally less crowded than the previous two parks, but is also the hardest to see wildlife. But nevertheless a beautiful park where you might see some different species than in the other parks.
