I took the half day tour and that was just enough to enjoy the elephants. I was picked up right on time and it took about an hour to get from my hotel (JW Marriott by the airport) to the Siam Safari. I had to wait half an hour for all the others to arrive. We first went to see... More

My wife and I did the 30 minute Elephant Trekking and really enjoyed this. We had booked this through Phuket Easy Tours. A driver from the Safari came right on time to pick us up from the hotel in Karon. It was about a 30-40 minute drive to Siam Safari. We were greeted upon arrival by our guide and were... More

My husband and I went on a day trip to Siam elephant safari while in Phuket. This was a wonderful experience! The tour guide was a bit in-genuine, but it did not stop us from enjoying the show and tour. Just like all the tourist attractions in the area, they have a camera man follow you around and then they... More

What an enjoyable day! Staff were very informative and extremely attentive especially our guide MA and the shuttle driver which unfortunately can't remember his name. Before booking I have contacted Siam Safari team to make sure that the Safari is accessible as my brother uses walking crutches and the team responded promptly and suggested the suitable tour and made the...

We did the half day tour in the afternoon. I was hesitant in taking this tour as these beautiful animals are now being used for tourist satisfaction and i did not feel uncomfortable about that but went along with family. I did not enjoy seeing the baby elephants perform, it isn't natural and I was quite scared on the elephant... More

We were keen to do an elephant trek offered all over Phuket but wanted a reputable company that cared for their elephants. After reading Trip advisor reviews we decided to book the four in one tour and were not disappointed. It was an amazing experience. Everyone from the driver who picked you up from your resort in a clean air... More

Me and my partner attended the Siam Safari as part of out 4-in-1 Safari, which was a half day tour. The staff were very polite and were willing to take time to answer my questions, even allowing me to inspect a mahouts ankus. However the treatment of one elephant left us a bit uneasy (see below). Included were informative sessions... More

Around the tourist areas of Phuket there are several elephant ride operations. Most of them appear dodgy and you have an uncomfortable feeling the animals are not in the best of care. Siam Safari however is different. Set in a jungle on top of a hill, the elephants seem calm and are clearly well cared for. They have an elephant... More
