  • We went today with the scooter to the waterfall. The last few meters immediately led past the Park and also we could as some of the previous speakers reported disturbed (baby) see elephants elephants that lahmten,-Elefanten whose baby had to go on a short leash with the trekking path, elephants severed ears and also otherwise very unhappy look. We could see even the Tiger(-BABYS) across the screen and how tourists in snakes were friend to be photographed with them. It's scary how little tourists worry about the suffering of the animals there and were out alone on their greed to satisfy themselves with photos. It was simply just bad to see that animals are so enslaved and - elephants are created not for horseback riding and trekking paths - alienated and not be their own can or should in an environment to assist in our world. I am nevertheless convinced of any animal rights association, that in any way financially supported by tourists and is accepted by our world. Visited instead E.g. the elephant nature park or other institutions who are concerned about the welfare of the animals!

  • We booked a tour of 30 min, which ultimately lasted 20 min max, with a mahout who practically harassed us for him left a tip, but either way, we can understand. On the other hand, once off our elephant, we observed other arriving, and there we saw who were bleeding at the level of the crane... Obviously, it does not hesitate to strike them. And the waterfall? It is surprising that a small trickle of water is called!

  • We passed this so called safari park when we went to the waterfall. It is really sad to see the circumstances of these animals. The elephants were chained and beaten by the men riding them, the elepha...  more »

  • Lovely park, for those who wish to see some exotic animals. Elephants and the like. For those who don't want to see animals in captivity perhaps don't go.. Animals there are looked after there much better than some people think. It's also the starting point to the waterfalls, on can walk all the way or get a safari truck to take you most of the way return (100 baht per person). .
  • Its trash, the elephants get poked by a sickle behind their ear, to get them to do what ever the trainer wants, they chain them up, so u can feed them, and have almost no room to move. I literally parked, walked by the elephants and decided to turn back. Also they charge admission to go to the water fall. What u dont know is the 1st waterfall is better and free.
  • Very cool experience but people constantly asking for tips has disturbed me I have to say
  • Worst experience ever! The animals are treated so badly! The picture shows the stressed out and miserable elephant with its foot tightly chained to the floor - the poor animal can barely move! Luckily we didn't spend any money here and therefore didn't support this terrible place! The elephants are keep tightly chained with no space, they carry the weight of the "safari stools" through the whole day and they have no acces to water or food. The baby elephants are kept away from the parents and you can hear them cry out. All the animals are clearly stressed which is obvious in their behavior. I wish that this place will be shut down and that these poor animals will get the chance to get better lives away from the terrible park! So please!!! Don't go to this place!!!
  • Nice views and scenery. Feel pity for the elephants though... ☹️
