Itinerary

Day 1: Bangkok to Sai Yok National Park – Jungle, private raft and refreshing swim in the river
This morning you will head on your own to Sai Tai Mai Southern Minivan Terminal. Please be at the Minivan Terminal by 6:30 am, because the minivan will leave at 7:00 am sharp. The journey to Kanchanaburi will take approximately 3 hours. On arrival at Kanchanaburi, meet your English-speaking guide who will lead you deep in the jungle. Hop on another minivan and drive towards Sai Yok National Park, we'll make a stop on the way for lunch, Sai Yok National Park is located about 1h30 further west from Kanchanaburi. The vast majority of tourists will stay overnight in and around Kanchanaburi in busy resorts. But you will go further into the national park and reach a hidden gem only known by locals!

On arrival at the park, you will be welcomed by the family who runs the restaurant and the floating bungalow. It is time to board on your private floating rafts and enjoy a well deserve local lunch. Get ready for a real jungle adventure! Your raft will be pulled away by a long tail boat until you reach a quiet curve of the river. Surrounded by nature, you will hear no other sound than the birds singing in the trees and some occasional monkeys fighting for a juicy hanging fruit. We have loaded soft drinks and beers for you on the raft, just all you need to sit and relax between to swims in the cool waters.

By late afternoon, the boat driver will meet you again and pull the raft back to your accommodation, with one last stop at the majestic Sai Yok Waterfalls. The deck of your raft then transforms into a natural rain shower. Expect to see smiling locals jumping on your raft to play with you and your friends!

Back to your accommodation it’s now time for check-in. A tasty dinner will be served on your private raft, just in front of your bungalow. Enjoy the evening and a couple of extra beers!

Day 2: Sai Yok National Park to Kanchanaburi Town – Kayaking, Trekking and Bicycle with the Park Rangers
Wake up early this morning (7:00 am) with a tasty local breakfast on your raft. Get ready for the second part of your jungle experience. Board a kayak right from the raft and cruise downstream through the national park. After passing by a couple of low-run accommodation and floating rafts, you will enter deep into the national park. You won’t see a single human construction or building for few kilometres until you reach the River Kwai Cool Camp. Built by a Norwegian and his best Thai friend with their bare hands, the camp is powered by solar panel and rain water only is used for shower and toilet facilities.

At the camp, you will be met by the park rangers who will take you to their home. Enjoy a real local lunch before exploring the thick jungle with the rangers. If not keen for a trekking, don’t worry! Some bicycles are available for a fun and relaxed drive among the plantations.
