  • Kui Buri is not the most well known of Thai National Parks, but they are doing a wonderful job of getting 250-300 elephants back to a natural habitat and a natural life. A trip to Kui Buri allows you ...  more »

  • A bit of a drive and no guarantee you will see elephants but staff try their best. Saw 3 lots of elephants so good afternoon. IMO arrive about 4pm. Best time to see is near sunset.
  • It is office and Campsite, Not the point for Wild Animal watching. It is same National Park, but entrance is difference. If you want to go Wild Animal watching, you do not visit here. I visited here for Camping but on that day, Parks staff did not allow because elephants appeared often. Yes! I knew because we could see foot print just in front of park office!
  • Good place to watch a variety of wildlife including wild bulls, elephants and birds. Just about 1.5hrs drive south of Hua Hin so an excellent half-day trip destination from the resort.
  • Very well maintained park. While we only got to see one elephant during our safari, we appreciated the beautiful countryside and friendly guides. We booked our excursion through Dolphin Bay Resort where we were staying, which provided transportation to and from the park. As with any safari, it's up to the animals if they are out and about, as was the case on our trip but it was as noted, tempered by the amazing views and great staff.
  • We were there in dry season and we saw elephants from the distance of 200-300m across the valley. It was very hot and looked like elephants were trying to hide in the trees so we didn't see much of them. On our way back we saw 1 elephant in the 'jungle' from maybe 20m. I was disappointed that our guide and pick up driver didn't want to search more for elephants. We basicly sat still in 2 places waiting for elephants to pass by. I wish we had been more active in our search.
