  • The Safari Park and Elephant ride is great if you are into that but the waterfalls 2 are a little distance away. There a service where they will drive you there for 100THB. Of course the Safari Park a...  more »
  • These types of business should be shut down. First off, the guard told me I could park my car in front of this other car (BMW 5 series) and when I asked him won't they want to go out his response was ...  more »

  • Please, show your beliefs through your actions and DO NOT give money to this place. This is animal abuse. Especially if you have children, teach them to say no to places like this. Note: A lot of the 5-star reviews are for the falls, NOT the animals. Otherwise the average rating would be closer to 1-2 stars.
  • Great place to visit. I like the different modes of transport you can choose to get around the park. We chose a golf buggy which was good fun but you can also hire bikes or jump on a bus
  • One of the better local attractions. Steep but short hike to the top of the waterfall. But you can have a swip at the top to cool down.
  • The animals did not look like they were treated right. It was a tourist trap in which you had to pay for multiple extra things for example a tip to take picture's with the elephant or to be involved in the elephant show. The tiger was chained to a grey concrete slab and looked terrified of humans and was trying to get as far away from them as much as the chain would allow him. The elephant trek went for only 5 mins compared to the 30 mins it was supposed to be. I would advise everyone not to go to this place! This place made me more sad than having any enjoyment!
  • DO NOT SUPPORT ANIMAL CRUELTY. Disgusting place where they abuse animals; do not contribute to this vile establishment. Any unnatural behaviour of a wild animal like that in a show equates to the animal having been tortured/abused to force them to perform. Don't believe the lies! Elephants should not be ridden, despite their size they cannot bear the weight of the seats and people. To get them to perform and be ridden, they trap them and torture them (they beat them, cut them, tie their trunks/tongues/ears/feet until they submit) If you love animals please do your research and DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THIS ABUSE.
