. Caught the 12:00 bus from Naiyang beach near the Phuket Airport
. The bus to Suratthani via Takua Pa is the best option. This drops one off at the roadside drop- off on the main road from tAkua to Suratthani.
. The lodge is established as one of the leading, and most professional operators in the area, and one really feels at home from the time you arrive. A fantastic, enthusiastic and helpful staff who endeavor to Help with all travel arrangements with
Great efficiency.
. The lodge is some distance off the main road in a pristine patch of rainforest. Listen out for the Gibbons calling in the early hours of the morning!
. From the main road catch a private taxi or arrange pickup. Taxi no more than 50 Baht per person.
. The lake tour is a must.
. If its not raining, the National Park entrance is 20 minutes walk from the lodge, and a walk to 'waterfall no. 4' is well worth it. Don't forget your leach spray!
.this is the wettest part of Thailand so if you visit during the rainy season come prepared! Even if it rains though, the magnificent limestone mountains are far more atmospheric all misted up.
. The nature trail around the lodge is great, and one of the best ways to see some of the smaller animals is to do a night walk.
. Khao Sok hosts some of the rarest large mammals in the world and one of the best ads to see these is to do their 'wildlife specialist' tours which is a 2 to3 day tour for a minimum of 3 people deep into the jungle by waterway! I will definitely do this next time and try to see some Gaur, Banteng, Asian Elephant, Sun Bear, Malayan Tapir amd possible even an Indo- Chinese Tiger.
. Great place- the only place to stay if you are visiting the park as far as I'm concerned

Great location - very relaxed, apart from amusing monkeys, but if you do not leave anything out for these guys - i can only recommend this place. Best location next to the river and a huge cliff formation.

This is one of the most wonderful experiences of my life but a bat did somehow manage to get into the mosquito net at night and left me with a nice bite mark...good dinner party story as everything was fine. Would love to go back some day

We arrived at Our Jungle House quite late in the afternoon after being met at Don Sak Pier by one of the drivers. It was a long drive, but our driver ( can't remember his name sorry) was great and stopped for us along the way when we needed. ( We had the same driver take us to Rawai when we left) Once we arrived our son was keen to get straight into activities so we took the tubes down the river. Was lots of fun with some monkey and snake spotting, not to mention rope swinging. The tree house was basic and clean with cold water facilities. It was quite a novelty after staying in beautiful hotels. I agree with another review that the fans don't do much with such thick (needed) mosquito nets blocking the air whilst sleeping, but the night had cooled somewhat and was not really needed. The staff were wonderful and most of them English speaking. The food was good and so was the service. The next day we took the Lake tour and had a wonderful time. I wouldn't stay in the floating huts at our destination; very rough with dirty showers and toilets half way up a hill. But that's just me. The more adventurous would love it. We swam and canoed until lunch was ready (Thai food which my son was not keen on, so it would be good if offered something for fussy kids so they don't go too hungry. We loved the food) then we headed out for a jungle trek which included going through rivers and streams, so wear shoes that can get wet. We reached the cave where I didn't go in, but my son and his dad did. The water in the cave was rushing quite fast and it was over my son's head ( he is 13) nonetheless, he had a ball. He also had a wonderful time with our guide who was making bamboo horns and leaf hats for the kids, (and not so kids) on the trek back. My only complaint about our jungle stay was we were unlucky enough to have a 'one off' karaoke party pumping (not a usual event for Our Jungle House I was told) on the night after our long day on the lake, etc, when we were wishing to return to a quiet relaxing dinner and drink enjoying the peace of the jungle. Instead we hurriedly ate and went back to our tree house where the music and singing could still be heard. Being very tired and with the help of earplugs I was fine and went off to sleep quite early. The next morning (with apologies for the noise from the staff) before we left we did the elephant ride. What a ride it was in the jungle. Much better than the ones that just go around a simple track elsewhere. This one went through the jungle climbing up a steep path. The elephants are amazing. My son's highlight was sitting near the elephants head during the ride. The mahouts seemed to genuinely care for their elephants which is why (I'm told) Our Jungle House deals with this company. All in all we had a great time. Spent lots of baht during our two night stay so be prepared, but would recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different whilst in Thailand for at least 2 nights.

This was our 2nd stay at our jungle house as usual it was amazing,, but this review is about a new community based activity, which we had the pleasure of doing from Our jungle house.! There are a range of activitys you can do, all of them with local families, shadow puppet making, pandanus weaving, cooking classes, canoeing, just to name a few... we did a cooking class, & canoeing...We were picked up from Our jungle house by Lek and his wife noi, we arrived at their home after a short stop to pick up fresh ingrediants form local shop. After lek & Noi welcomed us into there home Lek went 2 get fresh coconut from tree, he cut the top off one gave it to us to drink then showed us how to dehusk & grate the flesh. We were making thai sweets & spicy dip (nahm prik) Lek & noi took us thru every step of cooking with us helping with English & them with thai we then sat and ate together. we had the most enjoyable time with Lek & noi after this we did canoeing down sok river with Lek as our captain we even stopped for coffee made on camp fire.. we highly recommend both these activities.!!!!! All in all we had a most enjoyable day..
