The instant you step into a Thai jungle, you'll be captivated by the
sight and sounds of its animal inhabitants. A chief theme in its
living, musical backdrop is the morning song of white-handed gibbons;
we're likely to spot these forest acrobats swinging gracefully from
tree to tree, 20 meters above us. Some animals, like the pig-tailed
macaque in the picture, are amazingly sociable and we can easily
observe whole families close up. We can find beautiful, endangered
elephants by following their trails. And we might catch a rare
glimpse of a tiger as well.
In many of these forests, I can take you on day or night safaris from
covered or open vehicles, giving you a chance to see these wild
animals in their natural habitat without any difficult hiking. Other
guests enjoy long camping trips where we can see more species.
Thailand's forests are home to tigers, gibbons, macaques, sambar and
barking deer, civets, slow loris, gaur, and hundreds of other
fascinating animal species. One of Thailand's largest herds of wild
elephants roams Khao Yai National Forest. Take a journey with me
and see them for yourself!
