This trip was one of the highlights of our trip through Thailand. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel we were treated very well. The crew is super cool and my compliments for the enthusiasm and knowledge that everyone has for the jungle. They are small groups and a lot of thought is given to what you want to see as a customer. The food was also very tasty and the accommodation was also in a prime location. You have to keep in mind that you get the real wildlife experience, buy leech socks for the hike and make sure you have sturdy shoes and a waterproof bag. We also expected that it would be a kind of safari, like in Africa. But because the forests are sheltered, the chance that you will see an animal is very small. We have seen an elephant, monkeys, birds and many impressive insects. The wildlife is also amazing. My compliments to the staff and I would definitely recommend this to anyone! Greetings from Bart and Loes

We went here in August and had an amazing day. Jammed packed with well organised activities. Our driver spoke excellent English and was more than helpful and happy to talk to us about living in Thailand. Although people we met were welcoming. The elephant encounter really touched our hearts. They are well cared for here and being able give them a mud bath was such a precious experience. This memory is mine forever! We would definitely book again.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable guide Wonderful personal experience with the elephants and excellent treatment of them Monkeys were a bonus experience Food at lunch and cooking demonstrations fantastic Highly recommend for all travellers young and old. A great day out and very memorable
