  • We booked a tour which had several places to visit as a package. The safari car picked us up, we were 6 in the group. And our journey has started with authentic Thai streets & roads & beautiful greene...  more »
  • Actually wollzen we a waterfall look at. When we arrived with our scooters, we noticed that is also a Safari Park. I saw never been something bad! Elephants with bloody wounds on the head (the elephant hooks that look like ice picks are also used) and so strapped that they can move more! Would have to cry! And there really are Europeans who stand in another line and pay money to make a round trip on an elephant! Why does something here nobody???

  • We went specifically for the Waterfalls beside this place, but were distracted by the extremely distressed elephants you see beforehand. Animals are locked up by all 4 feet so they cannot move, and ha...  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). . Wear good non slip footwear, as wet rocks at the waterfalls can be very slippery. Also, it's a good idea to use mosquito repellent.
  • Gorgeous scenery. Waterfall with big slide, cafes, kids playground, elephant Park, 4×4 transportation and zip line activity. It's free to walk up the path way and/or swim in the banks of the waterfall. Other activities are chargeable. The climb starts off ok and gets steeper, it starts as a concrete way, turns into a mountain path made out of dried mud, parts have rocks embedded other parts are plane, with foot bridges from time to time. Great place for scenery and relaxation. Better to go in day light I believe, although I haven't been in the evening so wouldn't know. But probably too dark and empty at night like most of Samui.
  • Please don‘t go! The visit to this so called Safari Park was unfortunately part of a corporate activity. What looks like harmless fun to the blissfully ignorant eye is animal cruelty. Elephants and monkeys are paraded doing silly tricks. Elephants are chained to the ground giving them hardly any room to move. Sickening and sad!
  • Horrible place where elephants are basically used as slaves. I saw it and left directly. Please do not promote this kind of places!. I was some days ago in another place where you feed, and play with elephants in the river without riding. It is much more fun and you can see the happiness on them.
  • DO NOT SUPPORT THE ELEPHANT TREK! THE ELEPHANTS ARE SLAVES IN CHAINS, SO SAD!!!! THEY DO NOT ENJOY BEING RIDDEN!!! USE THE TAXI TRUCKS TO GET TO THE WATERFALLS. The hike to the waterfalls is spectacular and the falls themselves are breath taking. Take a dip, relax, meet new people.
