ITINERARY

Day 1 - (Lunch & Dinner)
Your unforgettable wildlife experience starts here! You’ll be picked up from your hotel by the Wildlife Alliance team for the 3 hour journey to the remote Wildlife Release Station. On the way you'll also get to visit the Chi Phat Eco Tourism Project, dedicated to preserving the surrounding environment, providing unique adventures for guests and livelihoods for a community that previously relied on poaching and deforestation.

Once you arrive at the centre, you can see animals being prepared for a safe return to the wild. You can also check out the chalets built by For the Animals, meet with the local staff and discover some unique flora and fauna.

Spend the night in one of the chalets.

Day 2 - (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
The morning starts with breakfast at the chalets followed by a tour of the facility. Here you'll get to learn more about the rehabilitation and release programs and may even get to witness some of the animals including sun bears, leopard kittens, hornbills, pangolin and others being fed!

The staff utilise a "soft" approach which enables the animals to return for food and shelter if needed. There will also be time to go for a hike, relax in your chalet’s hammock or enjoy more flora and fauna. You may even spot some released birds who like to revisit the station.

Spend the night in one of the chalets.
