safari at Khao Sok National Park

Go on a safari at Khao Sok National Park Rainforest near Krabi, Thailand

If you are seeking adventure and want a break from the modern world, go on a safari at Khao Sok National Park Rainforest, about 1-1/2 hour drive from Krabi, Thailand. Khao Sok National Park, most of which is accessible only by boat, is home to the largest rainforest in all of Asia. Because it is a protected area, it remains unspoiled, without any development.

The park recommends two safari tours, the 3-day 2- night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari or the 4-day 3-night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari. The activities include canoeing, an elephant encounter, lake exploration, jungle trekking, and more.

Three-Day Two-Night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari

Day One

The Three-Day Two-Night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari begins with a canoe safari down the Sok River where you will pass beautiful limestone mountains covered with jungle forests. Exotic birds, especially hornbills, are frequently spotted, as are reptiles soaking in the sun on the banks of the river.

You will disembark from your canoe and visit the elephant sanctuary. You will learn about the life of Thai elephants (Asian elephants), and about the conservation project of Elephant Hills. You will be taught some of the secrets of the elephant handlers (mahouts), and will have the opportunity to actually work with, feed, bathe and touch these magnificent animals.

The end of day one concludes with a hot shower in your luxury safari tent, followed by cocktails and optional evening entertainment. You will hear the sounds of the rainforest as you dine at 8:00 p.m.

Day Two

After breakfast, you will explore Cheow-Lan Lake via a longtail boat. The lake is home to wild elephants, the rare Asian ox, hornbills and hundreds of tropical animal species, including birds, amphibians, reptiles and wild cats.

You’ll then check into your tent on Elephant Hill. After a buffet lunch, you will take a hike in the jungle. It’s an extraordinary opportunity to explore the make-up of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, with its extraordinary flora and fauna.

After returning to camp, you can watch the sun go down in front of your tent, followed by dinner.

Day Three

In the morning, you can explore the rainforest in your canoe or take a swim in the silent pristine waters of the lake.

A guided canoe safari follows breakfast into the more remote channels of the Cheow-Lan Lake. There you can switch over to a kayak and scour the air and forest for birds and primates.

The last day ends with lunch served at the floating tent camp in Elephant Hill.

Four-Day Three-Night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari

Day One and Day Two are the same as the Three-Day Two-Night Elephant Hills Jungle Lake Safari.

Day Three

The activities for Day Three are the same as above, except that at the end of the guided canoe safari, you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to yourself. You can read, play games, have a refresher, and never have to hear a cellphone ring. The day concludes with a delicious dinner.

Day Four

You have the option of taking a canoe and exploring the rainforest on your own, or taking a swim. You’ll hear the sound of gibbons all around you as you make your way through the prehistoric jungle.

The safari regrettably ends with one last lunch on the floating tent camp and transfers back to your accommodations.
