    PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT VISIT
    This is honestly the most horrible place to go see wild animals. We visited today without looking into and it saddened us so much to see these poor animals perform all this non-sense trained stuff. Poor monkeys chained and caged up, elephants look poorly and move away from keepers whenever they can. Elephant riders stop halfway and try to pressure you into buying stuff and when you don’t want none of it they just give you the biggest attitude (ours banged the box on my ankle and started shouting something in Thai) then got off the elephant - clear heath and safety issue and tried saying he will take a pic with my phone for a 100 baht. NO THANSK Heartbreaking after seeing these animals in the wild on other islands. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    Very poor attraction
    This is probably the worst of this type of attraction there is in Thailand. Let's forget that you are rushed through and don't get the time you pay for (eg: your 30min "elephant trek" is barely 20mins, yes us tourist can tell the time guys) let's forget that the "mini zoo" consists of two Civets, a rabbit, two chickens and a bunch of monkeys. These places are about getting your money while exploiting the animals. I have been to a few and until now not seen elephants bleeding as I did here. One elephant had multiple small holes/wounds on its head where it had been hit with the spiked stick. I could go on about this place but it's just not worth it. If you want to go to this type of attraction then choose another and do yourself a favor. If this review was helpful please click the helpful icon. Thanks

    Awful truly awful
    Avoid at all costs. Disgusting treatment of animals , dirty horrible place that literally makes you want to vomit. All the animals are chained or stuffed into pens far too small for a single animal, couldn’t get out of the place fast enough. If there was a rating lower than no stars this hell hole would get it .

Really cruel place!

part of the trip was an elephant ride. The guys before us had to stop the guide leading the elephant beating him on the head. We then said no we objected.

Another elephant was changed in a small shed to do tricks etc. The whole vibe of the place is old school cruel attraction. Place is simply tacky

This place was horrible! Came here as part of a City tour! The baby elephant although cute was chained up and seemed starving for the bananas which we bought to feed him, then the trekking was a disgrace! Rubbish everywhere, you go around in Circle twice, the keeper did get off half way to hose him down due to the heat of the sun but also hit him with the metal stick several times unnecessarily!
Avoid this place at all costs!

We stopped here as part of the half day city tour - brochure said ‘play with the baby elephants’.
Was not expecting to see caged monkeys at the entrance! The baby elephant was behind a barrier, chained and not far were elephant rides! Apart from using the toilet I did want any part of this park.
Disappointed on so many levels.
Do not support this place at all!

Unfortunately I had a city tour which took me here and I was unhappy to do this.
The main reason is quality of treatment to animals over here. Complete nightmare.
I see some better places to cherish these animals in their natural way and natural habitat. Visit those and avoid this.

The monkeys are chained in a cage. Elephants are whacked to make them walk. Snakes kept in dirty conditions. Baby elephant chained up. Elephant handlers try to pressure you to buy souvenirs and when you don’t buy they take attitude and take you straight back giving you half the time you were meant to have (although I was just glad to get off). Monkeys were chained to do the show.

You are pick up from Hotel. The trip takes about 30 minutes. First stop is elephant ride. 30 minutes ride into jungle. You don't go that far just round in a circle. You handler will take photo for you trip. They is an official photo taken. Some people take home some don't cost 200 baht. Next on to snake show . Sit at back if your don't like snakes . the handler wave them around. Next is the monkey show. where they get the monkey to act. basketball. counting numbers. riding bikes. Not my thing. Don't now how long it take to train monkey to do these thing.

Visited as part of a City Tour. Arrived feeling sceptical, left feeling angry. Exhibits are chained or in tiny cages. Understand people's livelihoods depend on tourists visiting but the conditions are atrocious.
How something like this is open in 2019 is beyond me.

The animals are kept in appalling conditions, how this place can operate in 2019 is beyond me.

Utterly saddening and heart-breaking.

Horrible and should be closed down. All the animals and snakes live in really bad and dirty conditions and are obviously scared of the keepers. There was rubbish everywhere the animal cages were disgustingly dirty, no water for monkeys that are kept chained in small open cages that were out in the sun. The elephant handlers would use pointed hooked canes on the elephants to get them to keep moving. Terrible place, wish we hadn't seen this place.
