ITINERARIES

Beach & Rainforest Nature Safari

Day 1 (L/D) Phuket / Krabi or Surat Thani – Khao Sok National Park
Pick up from your hotel in Phuket, Krabi, Surat Thani or Khao Lak, and transfer to Khao Sok. En-route, glimpses of tropical rural life can be caught.

Upon arrival at Elephant Hills Camp, a buffet lunch with a variety of delicious Thai dishes will be served. After lunch, you will relax during a jungle river canoe trip down the Sok River. With the help of a local river guide, drift along the jungle river passing Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered with exotic tropical vegetation.

Day 2 (B/L/D) Khao Sok National Park
Today, you will be transferred to the West Coast. Then, board a speed boat near to Takua Pa to explore the mysterious maze of channels in the mangrove forest. You may have the chance to spot some animals like mangrove cat snakes, reticulated pythons or red-tailed racers. A wide variety of bird species inhabit the area as well. Cruising through the channels, we finally meet and board a classical Burmese junk.

Lunch will be served on board, but not before you had the opportunity to explore the nearby mangrove creek in a self-paddled canoe. Appreciate the breathtaking views of distant mangroves and banyan trees stretch to the horizon. On the way back to Elephant Camp, you will stop at a local market. In the evening, you will deserve to have a rest and to enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding jungle-covered mountains.

Day 3 (B/L) Khao Sok – Phuket / Krabi or Surat Thani

After a good night, it is time for a wholesome breakfast before exploring the jungle by walking. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the ecology of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, to see a great variety of exotic plants, tropical hardwood trees with huge roots, orchids, palms, ferns, bamboos and mosses.

If the weather permits, the lunch will be served in the rainforest and the food will be cooked in bamboo, an old tradition of jungle explorers from past centuries. Unfortunately after lunch, the beautiful experience will end: it will be time to return to Elephant Hills, then onward transfer to your hotel in Phuket / Krabi or Surat Thani or to the airport. After this trip, you will always know how it feels to be close to nature in the jungle, something that you will never forget.
