Samarn Bird Camp is arguably the best option in Kaeng Krachan for birdwatchers and other nature lovers seeking affordable rooms, transport and English-speaking guides from a single source. Located just east of the main gate to the park’s must-see central section, the charming place greets you with an open-sided eatery decorated with thick wooden tables and murals of hornbills.

English-speaking staffers arrange tours and maintain a large lotus pond and fruit trees that attract flocks of birds at Baan Maka, one of the most naturally beautiful resorts we’ve stayed at in a long time.

Kanyapa is a cute budget resort that’s convenient for travellers who arrive at Park Headquarters on a public minibus and don’t feel like camping.
