My family and i made the mistake of not checking the reviews and went off of a brochure and ended up at this place. We thought riding an elephant was going to be a fun thing to experience will we were in Thailand big mistake! I cant speak for other parks but this one was sad. They don't care about... More

My friends and i attended this Safari park going off a brochure we'd picked up in town. We were absolutely discussed with the way the animals were treated and the state of the park generally. We would strongly suggest not attending this park at all. Very sad to see all the animals tied up to trees with no where to... More

We are no tree-huggers, but I had my doubts before going confirmed. Elephants that are agressive and stressed (typical head banging) and chained all the time. The 'driver' was trying to sell us ivory during the ride!! We were stunned.. This says enough about animal welfare concern in that place... We both felt really guilty after going. Never again. Less... More

First of all, if you are one those animal protector, don't go there, because the animals are not well treated, etc. But this is like anywhere else, its not their fault! Apart from that, we had a really fun moments there, as we could ride an elephant for around 30 minutes, took a lot of photos! Just the guide was... More

This is the best Samui can offer in terms of elephant trekking, feeding, crocodile show all in one place, also it stands on the way to waterfalls. Do not expect much, you are on the tiny island! But if you bored at the beach, could try it.

I can't believe that places like this exist... Me and my partner got unknowingly taken to this park as part of a koh samui island tour!! The safari park is awful and the animals are badly treated, tied up so that they can barely move. Some were rocking and seemed distressed . Tigers in extremely small cages, and the elephants...

A lovely place to visit. Please wear loose cotton clothes, its very hot out there and you are in the sun most of the time. Carry water. Few attractions and a 4 wheel Adventure ride. Worth a visit.

Nice enough get up. Looks organised. They have many activities here eg go karting, take a pic with a tiger, zoo etc. However the elephant trekking is what they are known for. 700 Baht each. 300 Baht for a picture. Other packages are available but depending on time of year the waterfall may have dried out. Not suitable for children.... More

Animals in small cages. Not cared for. When you asked questions about the animals, they suddenly couldn't understand English.
