The world is full of tropical, luscious rainforests waiting to be explored. In every continent, there is a rainforest that offers its own unique blend of wildlife, exotic creatures, and exciting adventures.
One of the best ways to visit this incredible, biodiverse destination is by signing up for a rainforest tour. These tours are led by professionals that know how to safely guide you through the jungle, all while pointing out all the amazing plants and animals that you’ve probably never seen before. They also work hard to protect the rainforests and all the wildlife living within them.
Here is a list of some of the best rainforests to visit and jungle ecotours you can sign up for there.
Daintree National Park, Australia
Daintree National Park in Queensland, Australia, is located about 1.5 hours outside of Cairns. It is one of the oldest rainforests in the world. Because of this, the biodiversity of the forest is unprecedented. Lush, tropical forests, and mountainous woodlands meet beautiful white, sandy beaches. There are several trails throughout the rainforest perfect for hiking.
You can also choose to book a jungle tour with Daintree Rainforest Tours. You will be able to experience the incredible rainforest from the eyes of a guide as well as partake in other adventures, such as a one-hour crocodile cruise on Cooper Creek.
Yasuni National Park, Ecuador
The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most world-renowned rainforests. Yasuni National Park in Ecuador marks the perfect place to launch your adventure in the Amazon. You can fly into Quito, Ecuador before taking a five hour bus to Puerto Francisco de Orellana and then hopping on a two hour boat ride to Yasuni.
Because this land did not freeze over during the last ice age, the biodiversity in Yasuni National Park is at a maximum level. Exotic plants, birds, amphibians, and other animals are all packed into this tropical jungle, making it one of the best rainforests to visit.
If you’re up for a real adventure, Ecuador Eco Adventure offers four or five-day jungle tours into the Amazon Rainforest at Yasuni National Park. During this tour, you will have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing one of the most rich and diverse terrains on the planet. You will stay overnight in comfortable wooden ecolodges and explore the incredible landscapes during the day.
Khao Yai National Park, Thailand
Khao Yai National Park is located in the Nakhon Ratchasima Province of Thailand. To get there, you can fly into Bangkok and take a two hour bus to Pak Chong, which is the nearest town.
Khao Yai National Park is one of the best rainforest parks in the region to animal-watch. The park is one of the best destinations to see Asian elephants in the wild. Khao Yai is also filled with beautiful green forests and splendid waterfalls. If you take a rainforest tour through the area, it will surely not disappoint.
Thai National Parks offer one to four-day guided tours. I highly recommend taking an overnight tour because you’ll have to chance to see some of the wildlife that only comes out at night. Some of the animals you might see include gibbons, hornbills, deers, macaques, and elephants! Thai National Parks also offers bird watching tours and photo tours.
