Tigers and Elephants in Thailand

Panda Trips          Tiger Trips           Narwhal Trip           Whale Watching Trips            Gorilla Trips

Tigers and elephants are two of Thailand's, and even the world's, most amazing animals, to experience an up close adventure with either of these majestic creatures would be an amazing goal for a single trip. Imagine having a great, up close experience with both of these amazing animals in this trip, and getting to do it in the incredible country of Thailand. Throughout your trip, you'll be accompanied by native Thai guides that speak fluent English, on a journey that will take you to beautiful cultural and historical sites, two great locations to interact with tigers and elephants, and places to enjoy delicious Thai cuisine. We designed this trip around two of the most fascinating land creatures our planet has to offer. The amazing power, yet gentle movements of the Thai elephant, and the recognizable common cat like features and behaviors in the very uncommon, awe inspiring, tiger. With both of these experiences in Thailand, we couldn't pass up the chance to share some of it's culture and historical ruins. While this might be your only planned trip to Thailand, to enjoy these unforgettable animal encounters, it may become the first of many once Thailand captures your heart and imagination. Whether it is the sheer size and power of your first glance at a Thai elephant, and how gently they move themselves around, or maybe it is the awe of being right next to one of the world's big cats, that draws you in, we are confident that you will feel connected to these animals like never before. I hope you will join us on the adventure.
