We booked a tour from our resort in Karon Beach. This was a great morning had by all. The whole family enjoyed the presentation of the elephants painting, playing soccer and playing the harmonica. There was then plenty of time to buy a basket of fresh fruit and feed the elephants and take photos. The 45 minute safari was really... More

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was knowledgeable and funny, and made the experience even better for us all. The mahouts are so attached to their elephants. Even the language barrier was no obstacle because we were joking with them about silly things and laughing whilst riding a magnificent animal through beautiful jungle scenery and beach views. I highly... More

My boyfriend is an avid lover of elephants, so when planning our trip to Phuket I knew we had to venture on at least one elephant trekking tour. Siam Safari did not disappoint. I had previously heard good things from family and friends who had been to Siam Safari before, so we booked the tour with our travel agent before... More

We organised a 45minute Elephant Trek with pick-up from our Villa. The whole thing went very well and the Trek was excellent. I think that I would only pay for the 30minute Trek, if I had my time over, because the route was almost identical for 30 and 45 minutes and I think the extra 15 minutes was really only... More

Dear kingcol55, Thank you for reviewing your experience with Siam Safari. We were glad to read that you were overall satisfied with the tour. We were sorry to hear that according to your description the trekking time wasn’t complete and have discussed with the mahouts to improve the accuracy. At our Elephant Camp we have two trekking routes, one for... More

We were picked up at our hotel in Phuket. On arrival you are greeted by a guide. The tour around Siam was just magical as the elephants are so smart. They can wave hello with their trunks, paint and play ball. There is an elephant show. The Mahuts are very attached to their elephant and the elephants are very well... More

My sister and I had a lovely trip! We got picked up at our hostel in Phuket town as well as drown back afterwards. The tour around Siam Safari is interesting and knowledgable. We had one of the longer tours with a lot of information about the different products, an elephant show, a tour on the elephant and lunch. It... More

Two adults and a teenage son visited in early July of 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The elephants are incredibly intelligent and are even able to paint! The elephants seem very happy and well looked after. The mahuts also seem to be very attached to the elephants. Overall it was fantastic and I highly recommend it.

This place is first rate! I was concerned when we arrived via vendor transport to find about 100 persons waiting to tour the venue. But once it got started we were very impressed with the organization and presentation. The people were divided into small groups. We experienced the 7 and 4 year old young elephant training. The working exhibits on... More

Siam Safari is a well set up elephant refuge on the hills above Chalong. Staff seem knowledgeable and share that well with visitors. Elephant ride went for 45 minutes and included some great scenery down over Chalong and Rawai and across to the Big Buddha. Looks like the animals are well cared for and are happy which we were pleased... More
