Went here in June 2016 - we had booked an elephant trekking, waterfall, temple visit, and monkey visit. Think it was their basic package, it was cheap cant remember what we paid but the experience itself was terrifying and i will never ride an elephant again. When we first arrived we went to ride the elephants. Our elephant kept screaming... More

We ended up here as part of a 4x4 mountain tour. It was mistakenly booked by my hotel and not the tour I has asked for. When I questioned our tour guide wanting to leave immediately, he was not at all helpful and made us wait for the rest of the group to watch the animal shows and ride the... More

We were taken here by our "taxi for the day" having said we would like to ride an elephant. On arrival at the entrance we were hurriedly asked what we wanted to do and see, to which I said ride an elephant and possibly bathe baby elephants. ( had read that somewhere ) everything was very rushed, we were told... More

Went here because our son wanted to see the elephants. Wish we stayed away. You can take a picture with a DRUGGED tiger or leopard. It made me cry, the animals are chained up to a bed to you can sit next to them. People were actually waiting in line to get a photo, OMG. Don't go here, even if... More

Elephants had small quarters and were in foot chains, tigers looked drugged so tourists can take pictures.

Me and my partner came here on our own to see the waterfall not knowing the safari park was a part of the tourist attraction. I was appalled by the animal cruelty. The elephants where tiered and a baby was tied to its mother whilst people were riding! The workers had metal hook tool behind the elephants ear. I do... More

DO NOT VISIT, waste of your money and time, the animal cruelty is utterly disgusting if you enjoying walking around a terrible establishment filled with miserable animals and rude staff members then this is the place for you. If you are visiting Thailand (Koh Samui) save your money. Kind regards concerned tourist.

We spent Christmas Day at the park. The four wheel truck ride was nice. Our tour guide had a cooler stocked with water bottles which was SO nice. Lots of venues, elephants, tigers, monkeys, food cooking, rubber tree farm. We enjoyed our day but felt the elephants weren't enjoying themselves. Photo was an extra $10 and they even charged to...

This trip to the safari park was amazing. We were picked up in a four wheeler truck. I'm assuming it was a tour guide group they used. We saw a show with elephants, monkeys, and a Thailand food cooking demonstration. We also did the elephant trek that was really cool.
