The notion of outdoor recreation will gain a completely new perspective for you after a visit to the Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Thailand! Khao Kheow is nothing of a typical zoo. Its territory contains the hotel called Khao Kheaw es-ta-te Camping Resort Safari that accommodates its guests in the comfortable marquee tents suitable for spending a few amazing days right in the middle of the zoo. Those to whom comfort is a top priority need not worry – this elite resort has no lack in bathrooms, comfy beds, air conditioning units, refrigerators and TV sets!
Now try diving into the atmosphere of the jungle by imagining how you’ll spend your day at Khao Kheow... Awake from a sweet sleep in the open air, you’re leaving your tent and immediately find yourself in the bosom of nature. Stately peacocks and regal deer strut around you – many animals here live uncaged and anyone can feed them out of their hands. Having spent the whole day wandering about with a camera and tired of admiring the wonderful creatures and splendid landscapes, you’re heading for the great restaurant where they serve you authentic Thai dishes. You eat them while watching the marvelous sunset over the lake. When the night falls, you don’t miss a safari ride which will educate you in the way animals behave during the hours of darkness. Finally, having had enough of excitement, you fall deeply asleep, with the sounds made by birds and other animals in the background... Feeling slightly dizzy from anticipation? Then off you go – the jungle is calling!
Prices: Fee: starting from 3100 baht per night for a double tent. Package “2 days 1 night” starts from 2600 baht per person and includes a selection of dishes at the restaurant and the night safari.
