Location of Khao Yai national park on the map of Thailand

Our 2-day tour in Khao Yai national park consists of two full days in the park, primarily focused on wildlife watching. The tour includes hiking, safari drives, a night safari, and the most worthwhile scenic sites.


Why our 2-day tour?

Even though not the longest tour duration we have on offer, it is still double the time compared to a standard daytrip. And that means you double your chances to see wildlife. Khao Yai definitely deserves a multiday visit.

Tour itinerary

Here follows the itinerary of our 2-day tour in .
Note: Often enough, our itineraries get turned upside down. It is impossible to plan in nature; the wildlife does not follow timetables, therefore the following itinerary is just a rough example.

Day 1 (08:00 to ±20:30)

In the morning, we drive into the park and keep our eyes open for animals that we see or hear along the road. It is not uncommon that there are a couple stops on the way in to observe the creatures the guide managed to spot whilst driving.

Next on the itinerary is a walk in the jungle. Besides searching for wildlife, the guide might also explain more about specific trees or edible plants.

After the walk, it is time for lunch at a park restaurant. And from there we drive further into the park. The search for animals never stops, even when we are heading to and are looking around at one of the beautiful waterfalls of the park.

The late afternoon is typically the best time to see big wildlife like elephants at saltlicks, and other clearings in the forest. Though we need to add that elephants are certainly not a guarantee in Khao Yai. Even though not rare, they definitely do not show up every day. But of course there is also a chance to see all kinds of other creatures.

After dinner, it is time for a night drive. With a large spotlight we try to spot animals that are active at night. After this activity, you will be dropped off at your hotel.

Day 2 (08:00 to ±18:00)
Black Giant Squirrel feeding in the trees

Broadly speaking, the second day is similar in structure as the first day, only excluding the night safari and dinner. Different locations are visited, and you will walk another trail. This might increase the chance to see some different species than the first day.

This last day ends with the late afternoon safari drive.

The guide will bring you back to your hotel or meet the taxi for onward travelling.

Khao Yai national park lies at just 2.5 - 3 hours northeast of Bangkok and is easily accessible.

Our tours start from Pak Chong, a town to the north of the park. And we are able to organize transfers from Bangkok, and other places.

The park is open all year round, and our tours can take off every day of the year. But booking in advance is recommended!

    Tontan were very helpful when booking the 2 day trip in Khao Yai. We got prompt emails. We had a guide called Apple. He tried very hard to make our trek in the jungle rewarding. Unfortunately it rained the second day so we did not see much but our trek was very good although some of our group who had not been in the jungle before found it very tiring. I asked Tontan to give us a long trek in the jungle and they certainly did, maybe a little bit too long. However we still saw Hornbills, black giant squirrel, gibbons . On the night safari we were lucky enough to see a elephant grazing, a porcupine and civet cat.
    On the whole we were lucky to see animals on the first day. Some of our party said that they would like to have learnt more about the plants and ecosystems in the park especially when the rain spoiled the second day. Overall, you can see the park is a stunning place and well worth coming for a few days if you can afford it.

    I came to this tour with expectations so high that I would have thought it would be difficult to exceed them. Yet somehow, TonTan managed it.
    Beer, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, and had an amazing ability to pick a path through seemingly trackless jungle.
    He, along with the excellent driver whose name I should have written down (I'm so sorry about that...lovely guy- very patient) made us feel welcome and safe at all times. The driver even seemed more amused than annoyed by my penchant of jumping out of the truck before he could open the back every time Beer found something interesting...which happened a lot.

    I feel very lucky to have been paired with a guide who shares my passion for herps, despite me never mentioning this when making the reservation. Even better, he still took the time to acquaint us with so many diverse inhabitants of the jungle, from Lantern Bugs and Sphinx Moths to Kingfishers and White-handed Gibbons. Best of all, he expressed the same enthusiasm for these things that we were feeling, despite no doubt seeing them far more frequently than we do.

    What really stays with me, though, as much as all the wonderful things we got to see on our too-brief two day tour in Khao Yai, is that by watching Beer in action, I feel I learned to see better, and to be a better naturalist, than I was before. TonTan is a tour company, surely, but they are also a lifelong education company, and for that I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    All the best,

    Hi, just wanted you let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Khao Yai last week. Our Guide Mr Beer was excellent and really did a great job spotting all the birds, gibbons, elephants and even the now famous selfie croc.
    The pick up and returns to and from BKK were smooth and on time as were all your quick email replies which we really appreciate.

    Hopefully we will get to return in future.

    Hi Ton & Tan,

    Thank you so much for your help. And for squeezing us in.

    Also, just wanted to say...

    We had such an amazing time! It has been the highlight of our trip so far. We had an amazing guide and he really went out of his way to show us the different aspects of the park. We got to see way more than we expected to see, from elephants to butterfly's to crocodiles. He explained the lifestyles of the animals and also the plants in a fun way that intrigued us at every step on the way. And was more knowledgeable than we could have ever expected. He also had a great sense of humour and had amazing English capabilities. He went out of his way to help us experience the Thai jungle and understand the creatures. It was an unforgettable experience.

    Furthermore, you as a company have been great to communicate with and have made the whole experience as a whole easier to manage and find our way, for example, we couldn't find our way in pak Chong and our accomodation found someone who could speak English to ring us back asap and explained how to get there in the quickest most affordable way (with several options).

    So a big thanks from us kiwis and we will definitely be recommending your company to family and friends for the future.

    Hello Ton,

    we would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your/our guide (unfortunately I forgot the name - do you know who was it, so we maybe can mention it in a Tripadvisor recommendation) for this amazing two days. It have been two days far away from "mass tourism processing" as we've experienced it in Krabi (-> Island tour) and it were two very interesting, amazing but also relaxing days.

    It was definitely the right decision to book a private tour, because it allowed us to be very flexible and hereby we could see many different kind of animals very closely.

    Our guide gave us many information about the national park, the behaviour and characteristics of the animals and made many pictures for us. Furthermore (big plus, not expected) he knew almost all the names of the animals or trees in German (our mother tongue).

    Thank you again,

    Andreas, Michael, Ivan

    This Xmas holiday we did a two day tour with guide 'Beer' from Tontan in Khao Yai. It was a bull's eye decision.
    Beer has an amazing eye for the many birds, mammals and reptiles in the park. Even from a riding car he'll find the tiniest snake *under* a leaf at the side of the road. And no matter how good an adult elephant can hide in the forest, Beer will spot 'em! (Or was it that big, wet fart of the elephant that gave it away ;-)

    Beste Ton en Tan,

    Het is al weer even geleden maar we wilden jullie nog bedanken voor de 2 daagse tocht die we met jullie gedaan hebben in Khao Yai NP met onze gids Nang.
    Wij waren er 10 en 11 augustus. Het was geweldig en Nang is ook geweldig!!
    Ze herkend alle geluiden, stopt voor alles wat ze ziet. En we hebben zoveel gezien, gibbons, neushoornvogel, pit viper, python, krokodil en nog veel en veel meer. Ook nam ze voor alles ruim de tijd, ook al paste het niet helemaal in het tijd schema. Buiten de dieren is ook de natuur geweldig!
    Zeker een aanrader, een van de hoogtepunten van onze reis.

    Groeten Rob en Ingrid.

    Beste Ton en Tan,

    We zijn 2 dagen op pad geweest met Tata en wat hadden we daar een toppertje aan. Allereerst is hij rustig en beleefd maar wel heel alert. Met als gevolg dat we een super fijne tijd hebben gehad.

    De kinderen hadden een heel leuk contact met hem, en dat is met 2 pubers en 2 bijna pubers altijd de vraag. Ze begrepen hem prima en hij kon ze top in het gareel houden.

    We hebben beide dagen goed weer en ongelooflijk veel mazzel gehad met het zien van wilde dieren. Helaas geen olifanten of beren, maar desondanks. Even een rijtje? Makaken, verschillende keren gibbons (geweldig!), verschillende soorten neushoornvogels (staan top op de foto dankzij Tata), verschillende hagedissen en dat soort draakjes-achtigen. Een boomkikker, krekels, termieten, een adelaar, een enorme eekhoorn en ook nog een slang en een krokodil. ‘S avonds een chivetkat, gaurs en een stekelvarken. Volop herten, maar die zijn lastig te missen daar J.

    We hebben veel gewandeld wat ook voor de kinderen warm, zweterig en super leerzaam was. Bladeren geroken, vruchten geproefd en kennis opgedaan. En als voedsel gediend voor een bloedzuiger.
    TOP ERVARINGEN!!

    Tussendoor heeft Tata ervoor gezorgd dat we volop water en snackjes kregen en aten en dronken we prima!

    Kortom, een dure maar o zo bijzondere trip. Het heeft onze huwelijksreis voor 6 een heel bijzonder tintje gegeven.
    Heel veel dank daarvoor!!!

    Lieve groeten uit Nederland van Maureen, Onno, Luna en Joyce, Kevin en Tim.

    Hello!

    We are Sabrina and Luigi and we had a two days tour in the jungle last 6th and 7th of August. Our guide was Nang.
    We would like to thank you, and in particular Nang, for this great and unforgettable experience. We spent two beautiful days in the park, we had very adventurous experience and everything was really great. We saw many beautiful animals as insects, birds, monkeys.

    Nang is very passionate of nature and animals, thanks to her knowledge we could see and hear a lot of nature.
    We also had the chance to take great pictures, one of them is the one I send you in this mail. It is the one showing the three of us and we would like to share it. Hopefully you can share it with Nang.
    So, thanks again to you and Nang!!!

    We hebben met onze kinderen (11, 13 en 14) de tweedaagse tour in Khao Yai gedaan, met Jay als gids, en het was fantastisch!
    Alles ( vervoer, eten) was geweldig verzorgd en het afwisselende programma was precies goed voor ons. Als we flink moe waren van een paar uur wandelen door de jungle, werden we een tijd rondgereden in de jeep om bij te komen.
    We zijn bekogeld door gibbons, hebben makaken, varanen, stekelvarkens, neushoornvogels, allerlei insecten, grote spinnen en een civetkat gezien.
    Jay was een fijne gids en het was geweldig om te zien hoezeer hij ook zelf genoot van de jungle en de dieren. Omdat mijn zoon het jammer vond dat we geen slang gezien hadden, is Jay in de lunchpauze nog met een andere gids die er een gezien had op zoek gegaan, zodat we toch nog een slang te zien kregen!

    Al met al een topervaring!

    Hi Ton & Tan,

    Hartstikke bedankt voor jullie mooie tour. (Khao Yai, 2-daagse jungle trekking tour van 18-12-'14 t/m 19-12-'14).
    We hebben er heel erg van genoten en dat was ook mede dankzij onze leuke vrouwelijke gids, Nang.
    Ze kon heel snel vogels en andere dieren spotten en inzoomen met verrekijker en fotocamera.
    Helaas hebben we de wilde olifanten niet gezien. Maar....ach....wellicht een volgende keer beter.

    Groeten Geert, Jolanda en Erwin. en nog fijne feestdagen en een mooi nieuw jungle-rijk jaar met mooie natuur ervaringen toegewenst.

    Rating:  

    De afgelopen twee dagen hebben wij, gezin met twee kids van 13 en 15, een fantastische tweedaagse privetrekking met Ton en Tan van Tontan Travel gemaakt. Ton is een Nederlander die 5 jaar geleden zijn hart aan Tan en Thailand verloren heeft. Het duo is super enthousiast, neemt alle tijd voor jou en de dieren. Veel tours racen voorbij, maar zij nemen echt goed de tijd om dieren te vinden, hier uitgebreid over te vertellen en nemen alle tijd om bij de dieren te blijven. Ook is er ruim voldoende aandacht voor eigen wensen en behoeftes. Lunch en diner adressen zijn lokaal en super lekker.
    Het racen hebben wij toch 1 keer ook gedaan, maar dat was om toch nog een gesignaleerde olifant te spotten ;-) , helemaal goed dus!

    Samen met Ton en Tan hebben wij diverse soorten Gibbons (wat een geweldig geluid maken deze apen!) gespot, een grote groep neushoornvogels (de grootste soort), herten, zgn blaffende herten, de enige krokodil in het park, slangen, hagedissen, een varaan, vele makaken (ook met jongen), prachtige vlinders, insecten etc. Ook hebben wij de zgn 'blauwe kip' gespot, de nationale vogel van Thailand; de Siamese vuurrugfazant. Natuurlijk mag ik de schorpioen niet vergeten die we op de weg tegenkwamen.
    Tijdens de nachtsafari hebben wij een uil, met prooi, diverse herten en een civet gezien. We zullen vast nog een aantal dieren vergeten in deze opsomming :-)
    Het is echt ongelooflijk hoe ze deze dieren kunnen vinden! Gaaf.
    De eerste dag zijn we van 08.00 tot 22.00 op pad geweest en de tweede, op ons verzoek, van 09.00 tot 18.00.

    Kortom, zoek je een jungle trekking met fantastische enthousiaste begeleiding en kennis van zaken die echt de tijd voor de dieren en natuur heeft en neemt? Zoek niet verder en doe het met Tontan Travel!

    Dear Tata, Jay and Bpoo,

    I would like to thank you very much for the tour in KHAO YAI we made 2 and 3 March.
    It was very beautiful, and your explanations were very interesting.

    If I know someone who want to go in Thailand, I will give him your address.
    Kids and we have a good memory of this tour.

    Keep going like this for other tourists !!!!

    Sincerely,

    Karine, Didier and the 4 children ;)

    In een woord fantastisch!!
    Zulke lieve mensen die met hun hart en ziel alles over de natuur/jungle/dieren willen vertellen. Service was uitstekend, heerlijke maaltijden en prachtige dieren gezien.

    Heb je even 2 dagen dat je de jungle in kan, doen!!

    We are a family of 5, with two adults and three children in the age of 6, 9 and 11. On our two-day tour with TONTAN Travel in Khao Yai we saw many animals, from monkeys and elephants to bats, spiders, many different birds and even a crocodile!
    The best thing about the tour was Ton’s enthusiasm for nature and animals in general. He has got such a good eye for spotting animals and as a result, you see much more wildlife than you would see on your own!

    If you go to Khao Yai just to see a waterfall, you do not need a guided tour. But if you would like to see the wildlife and to really get an insight into this wonderful national park, booking a tour at TONTAN would definitely be a very good choice!

    During our holiday, we were in Bangkok, Khao Yai, Ayutthaya, Chiang Mai and we have been in the south at Phuket (swimming pool and sea). When we asked our children what they liked best about our holiday, the tour at Khao Yai proved to be their highlight!

    Kind regards,
    Mark & the family

    Nice to hear it was the children's highlight of their Thailand holiday. The children are the future, them enjoying nature can only be positive in the future when they might have to make decisions to protect it.

    Thanks for joining us and greetings to all of you!

    Dear Tan, dear Tony,

    more than 6 weeks ago we have visited Khao Yai together with you. We are all back at work or at school, but still we are talking about our exciting trip and the fantastic time which we had together with you.

    For sure the two days on safari, on the back of your Jeep or walking in the jungle will always last in our memories.
    The night safari with all the different animals including the owl, the hunting snake catching the lizard, the gecko family including babies and eggs und finally the successful search for the elephant - all this made these two days the highlight of our holiday in Thailand.
    Even the leeches are now a good story to tell :-)

    We also very much enjoyed your hospitality and the stories you told us about the animals!

    I also would like to thank you very much for the perfect organization of the taxi pick-up and drop-off from our hotel in Bangkok and the booking of the Jungle House. These arrangements made our trip so much easier for us.

    Thank you again for everything - we definitely enjoyed it.

    Hi Philip, Paula, Irmi, & Helmut,

    Thanks for leaving this message in our guestbook. We're glad to hear you're still talking about your trip to Khao Yai, that's a good sign!

    It was fun exploring the park with you. As a reptile-lover seeing the snake hunt and catch the little dragon was my personal highlight. Not something you witness every day!

    Thanks again for posting your experience, and if you ever come back to Thailand you know where to find us ;).

    Best wishes,

    Beste Ton & Tan,

    Bedankt dat ook wij mochten deelnemen aan een geweldige tour van 2 dagen met jullie. Het was een geweldig begin van onze vakantie.

    We hebben veel mooie dieren en minstens zulke mooie plekken gezien. Er werd niet geschroomd om van de standaard route af te wijken en op geweldig mooie plekken te belanden. Ook wat dieren betreft waren er spannende momenten. Zoals een zwarte beer die besloot uit de boom te komen wanneer wij in de buurt kwamen en een enorme olifant die midden voor onze auto de weg op kwam.

    Daarnaast kunnen de kleine attente dingen natuurlijk niet vergeten worden.
    Overal werd aan gedacht zoals een kleine snack na een wandeltocht of een uitgebreid ontbijt met Nederlands broodbeleg zoals hagelslag en pindakaas.

    We vonden het achteraf jammer dat wij 2 dagen zijn gegaan en niet langer, er is zo veel te zien en te doen. We zijn ogen en dagen tekort gekomen.

    We willen jullie bedanken voor jullie kennis, enthousiasme, en de passie waarmee de tour gegeven is.
    Wij zullen deze aan iedereen aanraden!!

    Groetjes,
    Ludo en Prisca

    Beste Prisca & Ludo,

    Leuk dat we dit bericht van jullie mogen ontvangen.
    Wij vonden het gezellig met jullie op stap te zijn, en een aantal mooie, speciale momenten te hebben mogen delen. De enorme kraagbeer in de boom was toch wel een echt hoogtepunt.

    Bedankt voor de foto's die jullie hebben doorgestuurd.
    Ik hoop dat ook wij snel de foto's die we tijdens jullie tour gemaakt hebben kunnen doorsturen, maar we lopen achter op de lijst van door te sturen foto's aangezien de afgelopen maand en ook nog deze maand er maar weinig vrije minuutjes waren/ zijn tussen de tours door. Maar ze komen zeker!

    Groetjes,
    Tan & Ton

    Dear Tony and Tan,

    Thanks so much for hosting all seven of us (my husband and three children and my parents from New Zealand) in March this year. We had an absolutely amazing time and our 2 days with you was a highlight of Mum and Dad's trip.

    Tony's unbelievable proficiency at spotting even the smallest of creatures is extraordinary (but you should wear sunglasses!), beautifully balanced by Tan's calm presence and kindness to our children.

    We made a list of our favourites, and the top 5 were the giant porcupine, great hornbill, green pit viper, the civet, and of course in top place, the elephant.

    You both went to such a great effort to help us see these animals - thanks so much.

    Thanks for leaving us a beautiful message in our guestbook. We enjoyed the trip with you, and are glad your wish to see wild elephants came true, three separate sightings; 2 solitary bulls and a herd of about 10 elephants. Very lucky!

    And I've followed your mum's advice! At least when the sun is very bright. I'm using a pair of sunglasses we've found in the jungle, haha.

    Thanks for joining us and hope to meet you again!

We have seen owls, porcupines, a venomous snake, turtle, wild elephant, crocodile, thousands and thousands of bats (in just a few minutes!!) many birds and of course Ton's enthousiasm and knowledge and Tan's humor and thai smile

    Dear Tan and Ton,

    Though it has been 2 months, the experience I had with u at Khao Yai still remains vivid and was awesome!
    The entire 2days 1night tour was remarkable. Never did you miss a chance to spot the slightest movement of the monkeys moving high up in the branches with your hawk eye, nor did you miss the call outs of the various species around. You made sure I did not miss out any great opportunity in catching a glimpse of any wildlife in hiding too!

    I have learnt many new things as you shared your knowledge from trees to land and the species we met.

    Your thoughtfulness and sensitivity made me felt comfortable and safe during the trip.

    Your sincerity, passion and love for nature made you a unique tour guide. Needless to say…. TonTanTravel is on my top list for recommendation!

    With Great Appreciation,
    Clara

    Lieve Tan en Ton,

    Net terug uit Thailand blikken we terug op een fantastische reis, met de twee dagen in Khao Yai met jullie als een van de absolute hoogtepunten!
    We hebben van elke minuut genoten. Wat een prachtige natuur, wat hebben we geweldig veel wilde dieren gezien en dat allemaal dankzij jullie. Want zelf hadden we op zeker heel veel gemist.
    Ton, jij met je geoefende oog ziet echt alles en daar mochten wij van mee profiteren!
    Onze dochters van 11 en 8 hebben het er nog veel over en vertellen thuis natuurlijk de stoerste verhalen.

    Nogmaals heel veel dank voor de topdagen en we zullen Ton Tan Travel hier in NL warm aanbevelen!

    Hoi Mieke,

    Bedankt voor het bericht in ons gastenboek. Zijn we erg blij mee!
    De eerste dag was ook voor ons een erg bijzondere dag. Het zien van de varaan in gevecht met de slang was voor ons de eerste keer, de groep otters is ook een zeldzaamheid, een olifant die rustig achter onze auto aan banjerde (wat uit dit rijtje nog het minst speciaal is, haha!) en als toetje nog de Aziatische wilde honden op een verse 'kill'. En dan laten we de lange lijst dieren die daar nog tussenin zaten maar achterwege.

    Zonder jullie waren we die dag misschien niet in het park geweest en hadden we dit gemist dus wij willen jullie minstens zoveel bedanken!

    Groetjes, Tan & Ton

    Het waren 2 super dagen. We hadden nooit gedacht dat we olifanten, varanen, gibbons, een krokodil en zoveel meer zouden zien. De nacht in de jungle was basic maar heel goed om in de sfeer te blijven. De uittocht van de vleermuizen was ongelofelijk! Jullie waren perfecte gidsen met een hart voor de natuur. Ton je zag/hoorde werkelijk alles! Door jouw gedrevenheid werd je automatisch aangezet om mee op zoek te gaan naar dieren.

    Jullie aanbod is een aanrader!!
    Veel succes. We sturen de foto's nog door.

    Ton & Tan are wonderful hosts in this pristine nature park. Their extensive knowledge on flora and fauna is accompanied by excellent observation skills. This resulted in a very informative and fun experience.

    Apart from seeing rare species, such as an elephant and a crocodile, it was also a joy to spend 2 days with these kind people.

    We highly recommend a Ton Tan tour!

    Hi Tan and Tony,

    It was such an amazing trip, you guys have excellent animal spotting skills which I never ever experienced during any of my other wildlife trips. As you know we were on a business trip, all my colleagues enjoyed it too. I look forward to visit again with my family...
    The bat cave experience is a once in a life time opportunity.
    Big thanks to the guide (Tata) and Pi Noy, too.

    Tan,

    I and My wife, are thankful to you, Jay, and Poo for a wonderful experience in the wild for two days. Our trip was a grand success which my wife and I enjoyed every bit of. We did a trek in the rains, spotted lots of wild life and some birds. We spotted a herd of elephants on one day and a couple of them on another. Great sights, good food, wonderful accomodation in the tents, it was a marvellous trip.

    Thank you for organizing it for us. Since I dont have Jay's email id with me right now, I can not send this to him directly. Please convey my thanks to him and Poo too.

    Thanks once again.

    We did an overnight camping weekend with Ton and Tan. Our 8 year old loved them both because they went out of their way to make it enjoyable for us (it probably helped that Tan was so pretty ;-).

    Ton was constantly on the lookout for animals and birds and at one point he leapt out of the songthaew when he heard a gibbon calling out. He tracked it down and we spent an hour by the river just watching and listening. This is what we loved. It felt like a very personal experience not a cynical tourist one.

    He even apologised for not seeing all the animals - that is how much he wanted to make it a good trip.

    Driving back in the dark after our visit to the bat caves Kepler (the 8 year old) without being prompted said "I hope we can come back again one day" and I said something like "To see some more of the animals?" And he replied "Yes... but mostly because I like Ton and Tan".

    I think that is the best recommendation of all.

    Anyway I can honestly say they will do their very best to make your trip just what you want.

    It was a special experience, visiting the park on this particular national holiday - the King's birthday.

    The camping looked like a camping ground on a rock festival, haha.

    Enjoy your time in Thailand, and we hope to meet you again in the future.
