The Khao Sok Jungle
Nestled in Tropical paradise
As the largest mainland national park destination in Southern Thailand, Khao Sok National Park is the perfect place for nature education. The region is what remains of one of the oldest tropical evergreen rainforest in the world, a 160-million-year-old ecosystem.
Some of the spectacular vistas and main adventures in the park include iconic limestone karsts, waterfalls, fossilized coral caves, hiking through lush jungle, bird watching, animal tracking, staying on locally operated raft houses and more. Both human-made streams and natural winding rivers are used to enjoy safe and fun activities such as tubing or rafting – often conducted on the Sok River located right on the property of Jungle Life Camp and Our Jungle Camp-Resort.
The National Park itself is home to a wide variety of mammal species such as Asian Elephant, Gaur, Sambar Deer, Sun Bear, Asian Black Bear, Malayan Tapir, Macaques, Gibbons, Serow, Mouse-Deer, Porcupines, Marbled Cat, Wild Boar, Asiatic Wild Dog and many more not to mention the assortment of reptiles, insects, and birdlife such as Great Hornbill, Helmeted Hornbill, Ospreys, Brahminy Kite, Blue-Banded Kingfisher, found both in the park and around our camp.
With skilled, knowledgable guides, and professional educators, our domestic and international students get a chance for life-changing experiences discovering the meaning of biodiversity and conservation. Students also leave our camps having learned real-life skills, understanding local traditional crafts, and spend time outdoors having fun-filled adventures!
