Full description

Discover Khao Lak Safari on a full-day trip that starts with a pickup from your hotel in Phuket. Visit a waterfall, temple, turtle conservation center, and Tsunami Memorial Police Boat 813. Ride on a traditional raft and see a variety of protected animal species. Jump onboard a traditional bamboo raft passing by single jungle huts, ancient trees, and other exotic plants. Be attentive to your paddler, who will show you wild animals that sleep along the tree branches above you such as snakes, monkeys, spiders, and monitor lizards.

Learn about the Queen Turtle conservation center project, located in a military area, where the turtles are protected and taken care of before being released into the wild. Relax close to a refreshing waterfall and have a delicious Thai lunch to replenish your energy.

After lunch, you'll visit a traditional temple for a small introduction to Buddhism. Finally, head to the elephant camp to bathe, feed, and bond with an elephant.

The tour was organized very professionally. We were picked up at the stated time. Due to the weather, the order of the activities has changed, but this way we were able to do the raft ride and elephant bathing without rain. Tim was a super fun tour guide! We booked another trip with him because we had so much fun.

One of the best tours we've ever had! Our guide Gift was just great and explained a lot to us. The elephants are treated well and when they are tired, they are allowed to leave. Great lunch with lots of choice. We also really enjoyed the subsequent tour on a bamboo raft. Gift showed us a tsunami memorial and was able to answer all of our questions about it. We'd love to come back!
