Transport to Tiger Kingdom


We are coming to Phuket in April - and staying at The Outrigger, Laguna beach, Bangtao Beach. I want to take a morning to visit Tiger Kingdom.

I believe it's only about half an hour away - should I just book a taxi from the hotel, or should I pre book a driver? i think I'd read that local drivers were far better value than taxis? But I don#'t really want to do anything more than go to Tiger Kingdom for the morning - no other places.

Any help massively appreciated! I can't seem to book Tiger Kingdom in advance - so I assume you pay on the door?

Hi. We want to do the same thing in November - visit Tiger Kingdom for the morning and need transport from our hotel which is Indigo Pearl. Have you had any reasonable replies to your questions?

Hi Cath & Lucy,

We did go and had a very enjoyable day! We had children with us so could only see the littlest tigers - they were trotting around and playing so we felt very comfortable that they weren't mistreated. The larger cats - some were sleeping, some were walking around. I really don't know if they're sedated or not in the cages where you'd go in with the bigger cats as we didn't do that - those big cats were certainly all asleep though!

I'm glad we went, have lots of pics of the kids with the little tigers playing! I'd upload a couple but not sure you can on this post?

I booked transport with Manop from 'show me Phuket' he's on FB.


1200 Baht for around 5 hours driving - from Bangtao Beach to Tiger Lingdom then off for lunch & returned. Superb service! Great driver! I then used him a couple more times to take us places e.g Simon Caberet as he could undercut the box office prices for tickets and was 100% reliable. We only had contact through FB prior to our first trip - but they were there right on time - no problems.

Hope that helps :)
