This place was awful. Witnessed so much animal abuse from the staff. Poor animals seemed drugged, exhausted and like their life had been sucked out of them! Please do not encourage this kind of cruelty by paying entrance fees. Tourists need to stop thinking about their photos to show friends and more about what they are doing to these animals!

See a lot of mixed reviews here.. Maybe I should have posted my review before reading, and I would have changed it to lower? That being said I didn't see any mistreatment of animals. People don't always understand "training" sometimes it appears rough, but really does no harm to the giant animals. I saw nothing that looked out of place,... More

Do not go here. I am still so mad at myself for paying to attend. The minute we arrive I saw the elephants looking so exhausted and so sad. We went on a brief ride in which we were harassed for a tip. We refused and the man rude and obviously p**sed off at us. When we arrived back he... More

I was quite worried when I found out that this was the tour that had been booked for us after reading previous reviews. We did the 30 minute elephant trek and waterfall 2. Yes, the elephant trek did not go for a whole 30 minutes, but to be honest it was quite boring! We were not harassed for extra money... More

Driving around the Island in an open safari type jeep was enjoyable; an ideal way to get around when you don't have much time to explore. The drive to the waterfall was lovely, and it was great fun to be able to sit up on top of the jeep while driving off the main roads! The temple (mummified Buddha) was... More

Went to the Namuang Safari Park with the family. Am surprised that animal activists are not trying to get this place closed. The poor leopard chained in a cage most probably drugged with his teeth filed down, looked very distressed. All this done for people to have a photo with it. The poor elephants looked so sad. I dread to... More

i advise not to go on the elephant trekking, i think they use pregnant elephants to work. then the guide who is controlling the elephant will coax you to pay him some money so that he can take a picture of you with the elephant saying that the elephant is pregnant and he needs the money to feed her. yeah...

As we were in Koh Samui with a 7 yo kid, we decided to spend a day on some kid friendly activities. The half day safari at Namuang Safari Park seemed a good option, though I had read mixed reviews about Namuang. We had the customary elephant trek ( around a demarcated dirt track). The elephants seemed healthy enough... This... More

The hike to the waterfall is definitely a must do, it's not very challenging but shoes or trainers are recommended over flip-flops. Take the 4x4 to the base of the trail, trust me, the roof top ride is worth 100 Baht per person. Careful of your belongings, a friend lost over 400 dollars which was accidentally forgotten in a backpack.... More
