Thailand EcoTours

Thailand EcoTours with Wildlife Experts

Many travelers are familiar with Thailand's magnificent islands, beaches, Buddhist temples, massage, and colorful cuisine, but Thailand's rainforests are also home to many bird and mammal species: elephants, tigers, 13 species of primates and 900 species of birds - perfect for Wild Planet's wildlife expertise!

Our 11-day and 15-day Thailand & Laos "Ultimate Wildlife" eco-tours have been named one of the "50 Tours of a Lifetime" by National Geographic Traveler. These exclusive itineraries include Thailand's best wildlife destinations plus exotic cultural experiences at a cooking school, Buddhist temples, floating markets, and more! The climax of the trip is one of the most unique eco-tourism projects in the world - the exhilarating treehouses and ziplines of the Gibbon Experience.

A Wildlife Lover's Paradise
The national parks of Kaeng Krachan, Kui Buri, Sam Roi Yot, Doi Inthanon and Khao Yai harbor some of the most diverse and fascinating wildlife on earth, including populations of wild elephants, gaurs, tigers, gibbons, langurs, macaques, barking deer, flying foxes and unique birds such as hornbills and Indian rollers. You'll also find wildlife experiences that are uniquely Thai, such as an elephant camp where you can bathe elephants in a river. And of course Thailand's famous islands, beaches and karst. Choose from a variety of itineraries including the single most unique eco-tourism experience we've ever encountered: a system of ziplines and tree-houses where you can see gibbons sing duets to each other. The Gibbon Experience is offered either as part of our award-winning 15-day Ultimate Wildlife eco-tour or as a 5-day tour by itself.

Hidden Thailand: Remote Rainforests and Islands
Our Hidden Thailand program is perfect for travelers who love finding spellbinding places no one knows about. These remote destinations include a floating aqua-lodge on a 185 sq. km lake with 3,000 ft. tall limestone karst mountains. You'll explore the lake by long tail boat and sea kayak which allow sightings of rare animals -- including clouded leopard, slow loris, smooth-coated otters, 6 species of primates and more -- all without scaring them away. You'll also enjoy safaris by jeep and foot in the largest and least-visited national park in the country, for the best chance to see wild elephant, gibbons, leopard and more. Our Hidden Thailand program also includes a cultural segment in Chiang Mai and a remote island archipelago near the Malaysian boarder where you can still snorkel amongst colorful soft corals!
