Khao Yai 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 (15:30PM to ±19:00PM)

We start our Wildlife Safari with visiting a clear spring for a refreshing swim, and we wait for millions of bats to start their daily feeding migration at sunset. You'll be surprised by the amount of bats! Both the cave and the spring are outside the national park's boundaries. Our guide will bring you to your hotel at the end of the day.

Day 2 (08:00AM to ±20:30PM)

After pick up at your hotel, we start with a slow drive looking for gibbons & other wildlife and go hiking in the jungle, afterwards. In the afternoon, we visit Khao Yai's highest waterfall, Haew Narok in the far south of the park. Before dinner we spend our time exploring areas where wild elephants often forage. We'll have dinner and continue with an exciting night drive using a spotlight to look for nocturnal wildlife. You will be returned to your hotel.

Day 3 (08:00AM to ±18:00PM)

Today we start with trekking in the jungle. 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 end the tour with a daytime safari in search for wild elephants. You'll be returned to Pak Chong (or your hotel) around dinner time.

Khao Yai Wildlife Safari - Where & When?

Khao Yai national park lies just 2.5 - 3 hours from Bangkok. Our Wildlife 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 safaris can take off every day of the year. 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.

Khao Yai Wildlife Safari - How Much?

These 2.5-day Wildlife safaris are only offered as private trips, not as join-in tours.
Accommodation is not included, by email we will inform you about the hotel options near Khao Yai. Optionally, it's possible to camp the second night in the park (free of charge, but very basic ) ; for the first night this is logistically not possible. Ask us for more details if you wish to camp inside the national park.
