Off the beaten path - into the territory of the tiger!
Tiger claw marks in Huai Kha Khaeng
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?
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.

** Due to our home building plans and the lack of a substitute guide, we are not able to offer any tours in Kaeng Krachan & Huai Kha Khaeng, as well as no specialized herping tours until January 2018.
Our apologies! **
Despite the higher visitor number and more developed infrastructure, Khao Yai national park is Thailand's best park for wildlife watching. And since we have a (small) team of guides in Khao Yai, we are still able to organize a wildlife tour for you in Khao Yai instead.
