Ko Samui: 4WD Wild Jungle Safari Tour with Lunch

1. Ko Samui: 4WD Wild Jungle Safari Tour with Lunch

Embark on a spectacular adventure up into the mountain and through the Jungle of Koh Samui and then down the other side. All safaris are conducted using authentic rugged ex-army jeeps. It is an exhilarating and rugged experience, but safety is always the highest priority. After pickup from your hotel on Ko Samui, travel to the first stop on the safari, the famous Grandfather/Grandmother Rocks. Next to the rocks is a quaint market selling all sorts of handmade Thai products and souvenirs. Then, head off to the largest waterfall on the island for a cool swim in the natural spring water. Visit the mummified monk statue in the glass case at the temple as seen on TV. After this ground-level experience, crank the vehicle into 4WD and head up into the mountain to impressive viewpoints located along the route to the top. Pass by local Thai farmers working their coconut farms in the forest. Stop for a delicious, traditional Thai lunch in the mountain-top restaurant with beautiful views of the island. After lunch, head to Buddha’s Magic Garden, with weird and wonderful statues all made by hand by one man over many years. Running through the garden is a quaint little stream, and above it is an old monk’s prayer room. Drive down the mountain and stop at the rubber-making plantation before heading toward the iconic Big Buddha. After an exhilarating day, you will be transferred back to the hotel in the evening.

Really great tour that covers the main sightseeing spots of the island. The jeep ride is an absolute highlight and for those who are not too squeamish, it is worth taking a ride on the roof. Our guide Johnny and his team were always super friendly and helpful. For the money you really get the whole day program, super recommendable in every respect!

A very extended day. Seen many different things in 1 day. Nice and funny guide. Friendly driver. The jeep was a very nice experience. Met nice people in the jeep. Highly recommended.

This tour was super fun and the guides were so nice. They added a nice touch with a water fight during the off roading portion of things and everyone loved it. Great day

Fun to sit on the roof. Good guide. Good layout. Good food.

Very interesting program, a top team and excellent lunch
