Sad experience
Jan 2021
It was a really sad experience. This place abuses animals, these people hit them with hooks and keep them chained. You can tell by the look in the animal's eyes that they have lost their spirit and willingness to live.

Disturbing abuse of animals
Oct 2019 • Friends
Please do not support this place! I was on holiday in Thailand but also wanted to visit the elephant sanctuaries and animal zoos to see how they were being treated. Thailand has some great elephant sanctuaries but please beware of zoos like Samut prakan! There are tons of crocodiles way too many and they are definitely being raised for tourism, hunting, selling, skins etc. While I was there it smelled so bad the whole day, cages were not washed, they had pigs feeding the tigers!!! Why not just let the tigers feed their babies? It’s all a gimmick and sickening to see how they are all caged for the spectators enjoyment. They animals don’t even look happy. They had monkeys in cages screaming and crying and the cages were just covered with a blanket. They workers told me that they were playing...the sounds definitely didn’t seem like playing or like they were happy. There was even one monkey who was chained up in a diaper and had bleeding fingers. When I asked about the injury the worker said that he fell off the bike and then gave the monkey money. It was so odd. It made me so sad to see all the buses of tourists visiting from their hotels on tours. I wish the hotels would pick the good sanctuaries to support instead of places like this.

The park is a little rundown, but they seem to be constanatly working on repairs and upgrades. The price is right & the shows are great.

We started the day by watching the crocodile show which was very good! But when we came out of the arena there was a lot of crocodiles! Signs say they send some back every year into the wild which is good! As we walked around the park we seen some elephants in a show, however afterwards we seen them with one foot chained to the floor which wasn’t nice to see, we then seen the elephant trying to pull its way out of the chain.

Crocodile farm and show
Nov 2019
Lots of crocodiles! Seemed like too many in small spaces. Crocodile areas filthy including litter in the water.show was disturbing. Hitting crocodiles with big sticks. Couldnt understand anything. Performers trying to be funny. Arena very old and worn out. Disturbing small enclosures where two beautiful tigers were held in extreme heat. Took a small train ride around other disturbing small enclosures with small animals. Ended train ride touring garbage cans and building equipment. There was an opportunity to hold baby chimps in diapers and take a picture for a fee...we passed on that. Would not recommend this park.

A real animal lover, and thrillers vacation spot.

This place is amazing. Their animals are kept in "sustainable conditions appropriate for an urban environment. Their excess area used for farming the crocs were in great condition as well and its great they have a place like this to preserve genetics and eradicate the need to harvest aninals from their wild ecosystems. Regardless of what people may think; exotic animal farms like these are one of the only "safe" populations of these endangered creatures. Plus they are productive because they use the "old" and extra "unsustainable numbers" as a profitable byproduct coveted and utilized by humans. Its a win win situation. Plus you get to experience the wildlife and get also are educated about them and their dire situations in their natural "unprotected", "unregulated wild environments." Their tigers were beautiful magnificient specimens. Their primates and other species of animals as well. I loved it and the one on one experience I got to share with the Primates, Big cats, and Crocs. The establishment totally fascinated me and my family. I will come back every chance I get. Keep up the good work and continue setting the standard and being a role model for croc farms and family zoos alike. The only thing Thailand needs next are big game ranches like we have in Texas. Keep the endangered species around and Their gene pool diverse while giving outdoorsman and biologist the opportunity to harvest, study, and increase the population; while also protecting and managing their populous.

DO NOT GO HERE!MORALLY DISGUSTING AND VILE
Sep 2019 • Solo
Treat their animals HORRIBLY. Animals in small dirty cages in over 30degree heat without water or food. Animals looks worn out, malnutritioned, zero energy and miserable. Place is runed down. I read on EUROPEAN NEWS, an elephant was saved from here recently. I just wish I read the reviews before I went. HUGE MISTAKE!!!! These animals need rescuing.

Nice Farm
Jul 2019 • Family
Visited the Samutprakan Farm last month July during our Bangkok visit. The farm is good but need to do more maintenance for all departments.
The shows are good but all the shows the masters intentions are just to get extra money from visitors through the animals... specially the elephants....
The train service is really nice for kids.
