I'm not a fan of zoo's at the best of times, but at least in the UK you don't have to witness what we saw there and we refused to go into the main animal area, this was just from walking past to get to the waterfall 2. My wife was keen to see the tiger that gets posed with... More

Wish I'd read these reviews before going. Absolute horror show from the offset. Elephant show was so upsetting to watch due to the violence that everyone walked out halfway through. The 'master' hit the elephant so hard in the head the pickaxe/bullhook got stuck in the elephants head... You may think the elephant was rampaging or something... Incorrext, it just... More

We went on the full day trip and during this went to see the elephant show. The man hit the elephant so hard with his "training stick" that the metal hook was left stuck in the elephant! We (and most of the audience) walked out as it was appalling to whiteness! The rest of the shows were a rip off... More

Avoid!!!! 1400 bath for 30min elephant trek for 2 person. We paid for 30min, but the trek was only 15 minutes with a guide who asked for tip/money five times!!!! 200bath for a picture with our own camera, "lets take a selfie".... The waterfall was nice, but it has rained the same night.

We were going to waterfall 2, on someone's recommendation, but we didn't realise that we had to walk past this safari park. It was quite clear from the outset, that it was animal cruelty at its finest. We had to walk past two elephants that were chained up and in tiny pens, this made my wife cry. It didn't help... More

This place is not friendly unless you show them the money. I went here for cable ride and elephant trekking. They kept on asking for tips before providing the service.

Enjoyed the climb to the waterfall but the way in which animals are treated is not right! The leopard who u pay to have your photo with did not move an inch! When I asked the guy if the leopard had been drugged he got very aggressive and abusive towards me! Clearly I had hit a nerve n he knew... More

First of all, I must say I was little bit discouraged by the negative reviews here, talking about torturing animals etc. Glad I decided to give it a try! Yes, the elephants are kept in the park, that much is true. But we didn´t see a single act of torturing or cruelty. Quite the opposite - the guy who rode... More

We paid 700 baht/person for a half an hour elephant ride. We reached the location by motorbike though they take you from and to your hotel for the same price, but we decided to go on our own to have plenty of time to roam the place. We saw some elephants before doing the ride, one of them was in... More
