    visit ...und more sustainable organizations. In addition you have to pay exorbitant prices for a photo with a tiger, who is visibly under drugs or other drug influences. Therefore prefer to use the time better and relax on the beach.

    The site had terrible conditions for the animals. Tigers and leopards who was so drugged that they could barely keep his head up to take pictures with tourists, elephants were beaten and dragged around the Park and monkeys who was totally stressed out and chained in small chains ... We had opted for a trip around the island without elephant trekking, but was still taken to the Park, because the other participants in the trip were to watch animal shows and ride the elephants, so we ended up sitting in the tiny jungle-"café" in the time it took for the other on site ... Certainly not recommended if you have a little bit of forethought for animals and nature!

    To many Westerners, but that terrible. To each his own ideas about animal welfare, but I have seen nothing bad. Apart, of course, on an elephant, but elsewhere people sit on a donkey.

    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.
