Track of the Tiger was established in 1986 with the opening of the Maekok River Lodge & Track of the Tiger Tours operation, located on the banks of the Maekok river, in the Thai-Myanmar border village of Ban Thaton, Mae Ai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

As a strong proponent of responsible tourism, it became known an innovator and a market leader, showcasing the rich culture, customs and traditions of the diverse ethnic groups in the area in a respectful manner. It then expanded into corporate team-building, outdoor & environmental education and special interest travel.

The company established the Volunteers Without Borders Foundation (VWB) to channel donor funding and volunteer labour from its school and corporate clients to projects in local rural schools. The projects served as a platform for the company's educational and team-building programmes.

It won the SKAL Ecotourism Award in 2006 for the partnership developed between its Pang Soong Lodge Outdoor Education Centre, VWB, and the village community of Ban Mae Lai, Mae On in developing the Pang Soong Nature trails as a village owned educational attraction.

More recently, our sister company the Maekok River Village Resort & Outdoor Education Centre won recognition from the Thai Ministry of Education for the work it has done with VWB for schools in the Mae Ai area.

We are now proud to announce the opening our newest property, the Sanpatong Experiential Education Centre, (30km from Chiang Mai) on the 23rd December 2018 - see links below.

Equitable market access, product authenticity, revenue sharing and expansion of responsible tourism beyond the confines of established tourism destinations are the key to a sustainable future for the industry. We have joined the Responsible Tourism Alliance, a collaboration of partners (tourism industry, local government, NGOs and the public), to become part of an integrated set of solutions to the problems that threaten our collective futures.
