Birding Tour Thailand: 14-day Jewels of the South 2019



The peninsula of southern Thailand, part of geological Sundaland, is a birders’ and naturalists’ paradise – and the destination for this ‘Birding Tour Thailand’ adventure. Bounded by the Gulf of Thailand to the east and the Andaman Sea to the west, this lush tropical region boasts a maritime climate and a unique combination of terrestrial and marine attractions that rank among the best globally. Our tour is designed to incorporate the most spectacular of the region’s unique karst limestone scenery in searching for the region’s diversity of specials.

The region’s star attraction is the Rail-babbler, one of the few birds in the world in a family of its own. Also there are resident pittas in the area. Although Gurney’s Pitta is now probably extirpated from Thailand, there is a chance to see Malayan Bandedand Mangrove Pittas. Pittas aside, the rainforests we visit teem with flamboyancy in their birdlife – five potential hornbills, Great, Helmeted, and White-crowned Hornbills among others, ten species of tropical kingfishers, five species of trogon, and more.

As part of this Birding Tour Thailand adventure we visit a range of national parks to find these specials, picking up scores of ornately colored woodpeckers, unique jungle-living babblers, attractive leafbirds, and more along the way. Our itinerary includes an outing for the tricky Nordmann’s Greenshank and Chinese Egret. Whilst birding, we may encounter intriguing jungle mammals including dusky langur, pig-tailed macaque, the aptly named giant squirrel, the beautiful white-handed gibbon, and, with luck, the nocturnal Sunda slow loris. We will also visit the stunning reservoir at Khao Sok National Park, surrounded by one of the oldest primary forests in Southeast Asia.

This tropical Birding Tour Thailand adventure, set amidst extraordinary karst limestone landscapes and rich tropical seas, is one not to be missed!

What our clients say

Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic time I had on my custom Sri Lanka birding tour. Everything went flawlessly thanks to Andy’s preparation, and his knowledge and passion for the birds was infectious and made it great fun. Our local guide, Lester, was as passionate, and was expert in locating the birds and sharing his knowledge of the country. The food and lodging were great, and we became good friends as well as birding buddies, and I would recommend Sri Lanka as a, safe, friendly place to bird.  Andy’s trip report is on the website. Birding Ecotours ran a wonderful tour, and I will use their services again for our next trip. Bill Fiero
