(Dutch below)Disgusting place, you get ripped off even if you don't pay attention. charge extra things unsolicited. super small, all animals on a chain, and only animal shows. all so pathetic. I paid a lot of money and was out in literally 5 minutes. the only thing that was ok were the giraffes, we fed them and of course that food was super expensive. never go, you have been warned Walgelijke plek, gewoon niet heen gaan als je van dieren houd. Erg verdrietig dit!!

This time it was different. At first, I was reluctant, not another tiger zoo… again. I have been to so many. It is all part of daddy duty. Bring your kids to the zoo, the safari, the aquarium, the pony rides, the place with lots of animals, blah blah blah and then more blah. But… this time, it was really different. It was the second day of New Year. Winter, the air was pleasantly cool. And being Covid season, there were only a few visitors on the morning we were here. We were led into a private spacious playpen and the cubs were just all over the floor. Kind of like visiting a cat café with cats sized like they were on steroids. Each chubby and fluffy, they were clumsily strolling around. Some playing on their own in their little cat fights, and some followed us as we walked around. Instead of those tiger photo taking sessions in other zoos which lasted just mere minutes for a few clicks of the shutter, instead of being rushed on for the next in the queue, we were in the playpen, for a good half hour. And we could stay longer if we wanted. I had no idea the fun we can have until I was here. It was hilariously enjoyable having baby tigers surround my kid as the staffs cheered on for smiles. The photographer sprawled awkwardly on the floor for some good angles. Wife had a tiger blanket her, I had cubs surround me. We fed the cubs, we pet the cubs and we grabbed any that walked by us and hugged them good. There were 5 friendly staffs together with us. Each was an entertaining character. They coaxed the tigers as the shutter clicked. It was not just all about pictures. At times, we just sat leisurely to enjoy the company of baby tigers playing all over the place. The cubs made their screechy infant roar among our casual chats with the staffs. I never knew they made sounds like these. This was the highlight of the trip. Hua Hin Safari & Adventure Park, secluded and starting to growing in popularity, is a mixed of many things on a small plot of land between hills (small if you compared it to the other safaris). The other main activities are the giraffes and the elephants. A handful of parrots, an orangutan and a monkey of I don’t know what kind that loves kids, offered the other amusing close encounters we had. There is tiger show from time to time (not the Pattaya kind.. .. ), and the elephant ride. The feeding pond turned a kaleidoscope of colors as the other family fed the Kois. We saw crocodiles too, not in the Koi pond of course. A nice café watches over the giraffes, we had our lunch and my morning coffee. Then it was back into the park again, to the tiger zone where we fed adult tigers some chicken. The entire place is very well kept like a resort. There was no clutter of any sort which indicates neglected animal welfare. Spacious, no overcrowding of animals, they were all jovial creatures. Elephants have the whole backyard of bushland for their walks. There are several packaged rates for visitors. Please, please choose the 800 THB full option. If the animals are to enjoy the immaculate environment we enjoyed, they will need funds. The other source of funds they have are from selling the photos from the baby tiger playpen episode, which I gladly bought. The full option entrance fee may be high if you compare it to other safaris of much larger expanse, animal varieties and activities. But what we got here was exclusive. It changed my mind about zoo safaris. I had never liked them until now. One can spend a whole day here, and with the full option package, we can even revisit the baby tiger playpen anytime for more fun. Here are my recommendations: Winter is a good time to be here. I can’t imagine coming in hotter months and becoming a sweltering pile of sweat (this does not mean don’t come here in other months.. . .. ). A normal weekday and early morning will be strategic time to visit. Because this place will soon turn into a trend. I am betting the exclusive vibes we had will soon be a thing of the past when the crowds grow. Go for the full option package, it will be worth it, plus the animals need it. Please keep the place clean. Because it is a really nice safari zoo. I will be back, the next winter with my camera.

After reading the many negative reviews of this place, we decided to explore the place ourselves. We drove there using Google Map. The place is very isolated within the outskirts of Hua Hin. The roads leading to this place is a dirt road But once we got there, we were surprised by the service and how it was managed. The entrance fee was quite pricey and they had different packages, such as entrance-fee only; riding elephants; and picture-taking with tigers. We chose the package with both the riding elephant and pictures with tigers and cubs. The place was divided into tiger habitat and safari. The tiger-area was on the left side of the parking. The tour guide took us to the tiger area first. He showed us the large tigers, medium-sized tigers, and baby cubs. The highlight was that we could take close-up pictures with most of the tigers and cubs. The cubs were so playful with our young kids. We asked them whether it is safe to take the close-up pictures with the tigers and they explained that this tigers were raised in captivity while many were born at the safari park and the animals are well-fed. We spent endless moments with the cubs taking various pictures and poses. We’d probably took about 50-60 pictures with the cubs. The staffs took care of us well. After finishing the encounters with the tigers, we were led to the opposite side which was the safari. We rode on the elephants, which was a 20 to 25 minute ride. Then we went to see the crocodile show. The other highlight was seeing and feeding the giraffes. They were so healthy. Then we went for the 10-minute cobra show. Of course, during the trip, pictures were taken of us and at the end they asked us whether we wanted to buy some as souvenirs. Overall, our family spent about 2.5 hours at the Hua Hin Safari and Adventure Park. We would definitely be back. The kids loved playing with the cubs. This was their first time touching and patting real-life cubs.

The owner tried to cheat on our tickets. They were not trying to solve the problem but instead yelling and shouting at customers. They asked us to get out when we already paid for tickets? The animals were not in a good shape and condition. Please don’t go

After reading the all previous comments in here , I went to this place without no big expectation. But the staff were so helpful and professional ( especially play with tigers ) in the term of security and picture ! We could really concentrate to play and we really enjoyed. The shows were fun, it was really enjoyable.My children (3 years old twins) were so scared to touch baby tiger but at the end, they could even touch the big adult tiger. In this short time, they had so much confident and they looked really proud themselves that the have played with tiger. It won't happen if the staff were not as good as this. This experience was really priceless for me. We will be back for sure.
