It's rare to see a Leopard Cat in the wild, but nothing is impossible on a Night Safari in Khao Yai!

We spend the whole day in the park before we do the night safari. We'll explore the jungle on foot and by car. Possible sightings during the day are gibbons; the acrobats of Khao Yai!

Khao Yai Night 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 (08:00AM to ±20:30PM)

Early morning, we'll start with a slow drive through evergreen forest and grasslands looking for wildlife. We'll hike in the jungle, wander around between forest giants, and keep our eyes open for any form of life. After lunch we'll visit Haew Suwat waterfall, known from the movie 'The Beach'. And possibly a lookout with a wide vista over a vast forested area. The last hour(s) before darkness falls, we'll explore the park in search for elephants. We'll have dinner and continue with the night drive with spotlight in search for nocturnal wildlife. After the night safari you'll be returned to Pak Chong (or your hotel).

Khao Yai Night Safari - Where & When?

Khao Yai national park lies just 2.5 - 3 hours from Bangkok. Our Night Safaris start from Pak Chong, easy to reach by bus or train, but private transfers from Bangkok or elsewhere are on offer, as well.

The park is accessible througout the year, and our tours can take off every day of the year, but especially for these night safaris we strongly recommend to avoid national holidays and weekends. The Thais like to do night safaris and too many cars is not in our advantage. Every season has its own advantages. November to February is generally dry and cool (bring a sweater!), but personally we love the wet season from June to October. You will get wet, but the waterfalls are more impressive, the forests are lush and green, and warmth- and moist-loving animals are seen more often.
