We were traveling in a group of 7, 3 of whom were teenagers. We tried to find exciting things to do that they would always remember. This was definatly a highlight! After researching the "Tiger Temple" we decided not to do that,yet the kids really wanted some animal adventures. After reading about the park, we decided on this instead. Great choice!!! First of all we practically had the place to ourselves. We only saw 1 other family the whole time. No crowds here. When we arrived, the first thing we saw were the tigers and baby leopard. The staff let us take our time petting the tigers and feeding the leopard.The baby leopard was so cute all curled in the arms of my kids. The big tiger was very calm, but not at all drugged. They were feeding him raw meat when we arrived. The caretaker gave my daughter a piece of meat to feed the tiger. That was a little to close for my comfort. Although it makes a cool video now, I wouldn't do it again. The baby tiger was just like a big kitten with sharp teeth. He loved to play just like a kitten would. He was a little too wild to really get too close to. They do charge for taking pictures and feeding (100 b each) This, with the entrance fee was still a LOT less than the Tiger Temple and you got more for your money. Next we rode a bus through the different animal enclosures. It was fun to see the animals right outside the window. The best part was feeding the Giraffes and zebras. They would come right up to the window to be fed.(100b for food) The giraffes stuck their heads right inside. It was constant laughing and screaming!! It was so fun to pet them and take pictures. We have great video.
Next we saw the elephant show. It was almost a private show. We got to sit on the "elephant swing" and my daughter (same one that feed the tiger) who has no fear volunteered to lie down and have the elephant's foot touch her like it was going to step on her. Because they were speaking in Thai, She didn't understand what she was volunteering for until she did it. I know they do this in every show but I was a little freaked out. But again, now that it's over it makes great video. I was impressed at how these young teenaged looking boys had trained these elephants. Unfortunatly we had to go at that point,but I would have liked to see the other shows.
Great experience for the money . I would do it again for sure!!
