We booked a day out to the Kaeng Krachan National Park with Boat Tour included. I read information about this tour on the web and truly thought that we would be trekking through jungle in a jeep trying to view some of the wildlife (the thought of seeing elephants and elusive leopards in their natural surroundings would have been wonderful). This wasn't the case. There were some spectacular views as we entered the park, but the outer area of the park is used for farming (so much for jungle). We then drove further into the park and ended up a camp (in truth very similar to a boy scout site in the UK). This resulted in a walk through a `Nature Trail' in the jungle. The most exciting thing we saw was some butterflies! In fairness it is a very large park and we may have been unlucky in the tour operator we choose and where we entered the park. But we actually felt we had been really conned. As said the most exotic thing we saw were butterflies and the area (which isn't being farmed) is mountainous, so there is no way that elephants would live there. All in all I believe we were very naive. It was also an expensive day out to see absolutely nothing.
