FAQ overview

How long in advance should I book?

Are specific vaccinations required?

The kinds of vaccinations you need are dependent on which ones you already have and which other areas of Thailand you are planning to visit. In general, we recommend you seek medical advice on travel vaccinations. More information is available at vaccines.gov. If you are in doubt, however, please contact your physician.

FAQ overview

How much luggage can we bring?

We allow 1 piece of luggage per customer. For extra luggage, we have to charge 1,000 THB per piece due to the limited space in our minibus (and the resulting need to hire extra transportation for extra luggage).

FAQ overview

Is Lake Safari Thailand safe for children?

We often have both children and infants on board – and it works very well. We have life vests in different sizes and there is a railing around the boat. Of course, as everywhere else, the final responsibility for the child rests with the parent(s).
