NOT the jungle tour promised

Although we did ride on an elephant, that was probably the only thing about this tour that we found even close to the truth of what was promised. And I am not at all sure these... read more

Its up to you as to how you enjoy this park. Having been here several times it is an interesting enough place. A hefty walk up to the waterfall where you can bath in several pools, this is provided there is water, this latest trip saw most waterfalls on the island running pretty dry. The elephants are great to see... More

Don't expect wonders from the waterfalls in the dry season but it is a beautiful setting. Riding on elephants is worthwhile but don't bother paying for 'proper' photos as they take photos on your camera / phones for you and the tip is cheaper!

Although we did ride on an elephant, that was probably the only thing about this tour that we found even close to the truth of what was promised. And I am not at all sure these animals are being treated the way they should. The Mahout carry a device that I can only describe as an ice pick used by... More

We only had the elephant trek as part of a half day tour, so can't comment on the other attractions. The elephants seem happy and very well looked after, just be aware that the mahout will charge you for all of the photos he offers to take. Stand firm and don't pay too much, he even tried to charge us... More

We scootered here by accident and it was worth our while. For 1400 baht we watched 5 shows (bathing elephant, elephant tricks, monkey show, crocodile show - these guys were phenomenal, and thai cooking) - (husband got a bare backed elephant ride from the bathing), cooked lunch, waterfall visit in back of truck then an elephant ride with photo. Totally... More

Well looked after animals and for a few baht tip the elephant owner will get off and let you sit where he was taking pictures of you. Amazing experiance all rounded off by a trip to a waterfall and a million mile an hour water flume!!!!. Amazing experiance

I am always apprehensive as to the treatment of the animals at these parks. Many of the keepers live at the resort and treat the animals as 'family'. The elephant trek was an experience I will always remember.

Most disappointing! I would suggest to anyone not to go here. The elephant trekking is not worth it, they take u on a trek around the most boring unkept farm full of elephant dung. I thought they'd take us through a patch of a jungle. We had to trek all the way up to the waterfall to see a tiny... More

We booked a half day tour with elephant trekking and waterfall and elephant shows. I wished I had researched more about this place because I wouldn't have gone otherwise. We were picked up from hotel and when we got to park no one seemed to have a clue what was going on. We then went to lunch... The animal shows... More

We booked the Exclusive Safari Tour directly with the website http://www.namuangsafarisamui.com/tour-exclusive.html and went on a all day trip. I have to say it wasn't exactly worth the 1600 Baht per person price we paid. The first stop was the grandfather/grandmother rock. The formation of the rock looks like male and female genital which I guess wasn't of particular interest for... More
