Hintok River Camp is a rural nature retreat with well-appointed African safari style tents in a stunning setting right on the banks of Thailand’s River Kwai. The camp is conveniently located close to a wide variety of activities and two national parks: the Sai Yok National Park is on the opposite side of the river, while the Erawan National Park is just a short drive away. Also nearby is the notorious Hellfire Pass – here, during World War II, a number of prisoners of war famously and painstakingly carved out a route for a railway track through both jungle and rock.

The accommodation comprises 20 luxury canvas safari tents built on wooden platforms. They’re designed to blend in with their natural surroundings and come with a variety of amenities such as air conditioning, hairdryers, complimentary toiletries and a brass fan. All tents house a private bathroom with hot running water, as well as a terrace/living area.

The restaurant is set on a wooden terrace and is semi-outdoors with stunning views of the river and the lush jungle scenery. Three meals a day are served here, and BBQ Campfire Dinners are held in the evenings under the starry night sky. The retreat’s professional chef offers up a variety of freshly prepared food and there’s a bar serving refreshing soft drinks, distinctive beers, colourful cocktails and wine.

While simple and rustic in character, the retreat does have its fair share of on-site facilities and activities. Perhaps the most appealing thing to do here is to enjoy a leisurely dip in the clean and natural spring water pool. To learn about the fascinating yet somewhat sombre history of the area, visit the Hintok Story Museum or for something a bit more relaxing, book a soothing Thai massage. There are lots of exciting outdoor activities available in the local area from canoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and bamboo rafting to elephant trekking. Some of the many nearby attractions include the massive Lawa Cave, located within the Sai Yok National Park, the Treetop Adventure Park with its thrilling zip-lines and the Mon Temple, a grand monument belonging to the Mon people, an ethnic minority who to this day enjoy a peaceful and simplistic way of life.

Hintok River Camp welcomes children and is a great destination for younger ones who want to learn more about the natural world. Beds can be laid out in double, twin or triple formation depending on requirements. Parents are reminded to keep an eye on their younger ones when by the pool or by the river, as both are unguarded and unfenced.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
