The Khao Sok Jungle Life Camp offers dedicated tours & activities for all guests visiting Khao Sok. We place special emphasis on conducting fully inclusive family-focused arrangements for Thai and International visitors alike.
Check out our activity and tour options for guests of all ages below:
Our Sustainable Farm Activities
Free Guided or Self-Guided Sustainable Farm Tour
Embark from Our Jungle Resorts reception area through our rice paddies towards our sustainable farm. Meet our onsite farm staff, we highly encourage you to engage in some conversation and offer to get your hands dirty to learn the most about our farming efforts. Additionally, keep an eye out for signs and tags offering more information about what is currently growing and about to be harvested for consumption.
Our reception team can contact the farm staff to arrange a guided tour of our sustainable farm, which usually lasts about one hour.
Farm to Table Cooking
This fun and relaxing cooking class will take place at the farm and camp facilities, with great views onto the surrounding limestone karst mountains. The morning starts at around 09:00 am with a quick tour through our onsite Sustainable Farm. And for those of you with green fingers, this will give you a chance to help our farmers with some of their daily tasks. Our main job for the tour, however, will be to pick the ingredients for our “Farm to Table” cooking class.
The carefully selected menu will depend on which ingredients are available at the time of visit but will include plenty of options for a wide range of palates and can be amended to suit vegetarian or vegan diets alike.
A typical menu looks like this:
– Grilled Lemongrass Chicken or Tofu
– Vegetable Soup cooked in a traditional clay pot
– “Papaya Pad Thai” or Thai Papaya Salad
– Mild chili paste
– Fresh Mixed Fruits and Vegetables
– Sticky rice
– A Local Dessert
Enjoy your lunch at around noon in a Thai traditional way, cross-legged on a woven Bamboo Mat at our camp facilities, where we boast one of the best cliff views in Khao Sok!
The activity starts at 09:00 am and concludes at around 1:00 pm and is suitable for participants from 6 years of age.

After lunch you will practice making your own jungle shelter using only natural materials –including how to make your own rope!
Before you start cooking a jungle dinner, learn various ways to make fire with only limited resources available. Dinner will be local BBQ style: cooking yummy food using bamboo instead of pots and pans.
If you’re lucky then you will be able to enjoy your food in front our amazing cliff just as they are reflecting the beautiful sunset colors.
Overnight Survival Camping - Advanced
This 2-day course will teach you some of the practical skills and theories about jungle survival. It is more in-depth and adventurous than our 1-day option but still suitable for children.
The majority of the course takes place inside the national park and you will have to set up your own camp and cook your own meals.
We have a variety of campsites available depending on how far you want to walk, including one option that is an easy 4km walk and has access to a bathroom if you require it.
If you would prefer a shorter activity or have already been hiking, you can always pick your favorite survival activities from our Kids’ Choice! List of activities instead.

Half Day and Full Day Programs are packed full with nature adventures and environmental education. Mix & Match your favorite Khao Sok activities to create a Half Day (2 Activities) or Full Day (4 Activities) of outdoor fun. All activity options are suitable for guests from the age of 5 years.

|Nature Art is a popular art form that uses natural materials such as flowers, leaves, and seeds that we can collect from ashort walk around the camp. We get inspiration from nature to create pictures and sculptures to create our artwork! When it is done, we will take a photo of your creation to put on a card that you can decorate with dry seeds and leaves plus paints made from river stones and flowers. This means you will have a handmade souvenir to take home with you!|
|There is always plenty of work to do on our farm and you can help out our farmers with activities such as mixing compost, planting vegetables and checking for pests. This is a great activity for hands that like to get dirty!|
|Seed bombs are balls of seeds that covered in clay and soil and use as part of our reforestation project. As well as making and releasing the seed bombs, you can help us to take care of the plants that are already growing. In doing this, you can feel proud that you gave up your time to help the Khao Sok jungle!|
|Try this out if you wonder how forest people keep themselves dry while living in a jungle! Learn to use the natural materials that are sourced from our camp area. Learn some cool techniques to make your own rope from banana trees or other plants.|
|Learn how to make a fire and cook some yummy snacks, campfire style! Examples include bamboo cakes, Khanom Jaak (a local, sweet snack) and campfire bread.|
|The world is full of bugs and yet most people don’t take much time to understand and appreciate them. In this activity, we will get a clos- up look at their life cycles and learn about the different parts of their body. The highlight will be to catch bugs at our farm or in the river, as – believe it or not – they can tell us how healthy our local environment is.|
|Not so long ago, kids in Khao Sok used to entertain themselves with toys made from jungle plants. We are trying to keep this tradition alive by inviting those kids (who are now grown up) to teach you how to make cool souvenirs that you can take back home with you.|
|Enjoy a short and easy walk to get a taste of the Khao Sok jungle. We will only be out for about an hour so this is suitable for little legs too. Even though we will stay close to our property, you have a great chance of seeing some of the smaller wild animals and learn some interesting facts from our team.|
