What people are saying about Khao Sok National Park

This tour was absolutely amazing. From start to finish our family had such a wonderful time. The rafting was so serene and peaceful, not to mention the bamboo coffee was delicious. The lunch was fantastic and we had more than enough food to share. Hands down the elephant sanctuary was the best part of this tour. Being so close to these gentle giants, washing and feeding them was unlike any other. I could have stayed their all afternoon with them. Our tour guide Nai was just great. Through the entire day he would share information regarding each piece of the tour to keep us connected through the day. He took so many photos to share with us and kept our girls engaged as well. Thank you Nai for an awesome day!

It was a very fun day. The elephants were amazing, calm and beautiful. It was wonderful to be able to feed them, not to mention give them a mud bath and then walk to the river to scrub it off. I enjoyed the lunch and the rafting was relaxing and beautiful. Our guide Yum was very energetic and helpful. She and the driver went out of their way to pick me up and drop me at my hotel even though it was out of range. She took me to the Chinese market before meeting with the others which was an experience I wasn’t expecting.

Our guide, Jum, was very friendly and in a good mood! She took us to take care of the elephants and then see the monkeys! We then prepared a typical dish and enjoyed a delicious Thai meal. Finally, we went rafting on the river in a bamboo raft, and we were lucky enough to see a snake and taste a coffee made from bamboo. We recommend this activity 100%.

By far the best tour we did with get you guide. The animals are fine. You feel comfortable and it was an experience that you will never forget

Fantastic day out and our driver dom was very informative, took loads of pictures and videos of us and fun to be with. We loved it all :)
