Khao Sok National Park in southern Thailand offers opportunities for adventure vacations, family vacations, and honeymoon vacations.
The lush tropical jungles of Khao Sok National Park offer travelers the opportunity to have an adventurous, yet not strenuous, holiday.
Khao Sok is our easiest vacation canoeing and trekking tour package. This trip is for anyone who is even mildly fit. Khao Sok is soft adventure at its best! Perfectly suitable for families, kayaking is safe, fun, and easy. Kids will both enjoy the fun of paddling themselves as well as seeing all of the monkeys, gibbons, hornbills (and other tropical birds), wild pigs, tapirs, wild elephants, and other exotic tropical animals.

The verdant tropical jungle has a lot of old growth trees. Fig trees abound. In fact, Thailand has over 100 species of fig (species ficus). Each species of fig has its own species of wasp to pollinate it. The jungle is very interesting and we have the knowledge to teach you and your kids all about it.
Just three hours from Phuket, Khao Sok National Park has unique floating huts. These floating huts belong to the National Park. They are not ours. Other tour operators use these huts too and they can get rather noisy at times! This is our 'base station' for the tour. We spend each day venturing out to paddle into various coves in the huge 165 square kilometer reservoir known as Cheow Lan.
Our traditional kayaks are comfortable and sleek. We have a variety of traditional kayaks to suit every body size. We also teach proper paddling technique to assure you that you are getting the most efficient use of your boat for the least amount of physical output. Your comfort is very important to us. We tailor our tours to suit individuals on the tour. It's not a race.

Our knowledge of the flora and fauna of Khao Sok and the surrounding wildlife sanctuaries and conservation areas is unequaled.
Besides kayaking, you can go trekking. We offer many different routes and different levels of difficulty.
If you only want a gentle walk in the jungle, that's easy to arrange. If you're hardcore, so are we.
Khao Sok is also where we offer our jungle survival training. There is no extra charge for adding some jungle survival training to your Khao Sok tour.
Mr. Bao leads most Khao Sok trips. He also runs the survival courses. Dave only goes on big group trips and school group trips, because Thai law dictates that all guides must be Thai.
Mr. Bao is fluent in English and is certified in first aid to international standards by Emergency First Response. Bao has been a nature and kayaking guide since the early 1990s.
You're in good hands.
