Overview

Don’t miss the chance to visit Khao Sok Natonal Park, one of Thailand's most beautiful nature reserves.

Off the beaten path of mainstream tourism, this lovely National Park offers views of jagged peaks surrounding a placid lake of incomparable beauty. It is the perfect place to get close to nature.

Seated atop a majestic elephant you will trek through thick green jungle to a refreshing waterfall, where you can splash around in the clear cool water.

After a delicious lunch of freshly prepared Thai food, you can enjoy a river canoe trip. A local guide will paddle as you relax and watch life along the banks. You may catch glimpses of exciting wildlife or see adults and children fishing or playing.

Itinerary

For your exciting Khao Sok Jungle Safari & River Canoeing From Phuket adventure, you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan at around 0730h (07:30am).

Accompanied by your guide, you will be taken to the Khao Sok National Park, one of Thailand's most beautiful nature reserves. At a jungle camp you will come nose-to-trunk with splendid elephants. Clambering aboard one of these giants you will set off for a trek through tropical rainforest.

Arriving at a cool waterfall, you will have the chance to swim and splash in the cool waters. The 90-minute trek takes you through a spectacular valley through the jungle surrounded by the limestone cliffs and mountains of the National Park.

Enjoy a lunch of freshly prepared Thai food, cooked so that it is not too spicy. In the afternoon take a jungle river canoe trip down the Sok River. Safe, inflatable canoes with life jackets and a local guide to paddle for you are provided. Sit back and look at the lush green jungle as you slip along the river, a magical experience.

At the end of the all-day tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Phuket, arriving at around 1800h (6:00pm).
