  • Firstly, just let me say that my entire reason for visiting this park was to see wild elephants. With that in mind, I would have loved the place anyway. It was picturesque, the journey was peaceful an...  more »
  • This nature reserve is located near Myanmar and here are over 200 elephants in the wild. There are also water buffalo, pythons and beautiful birds. With an experienced guide you go in an open car through the nature reserve looking for the wild. We have seen a water buffalo and elephants.

  • Intake was at 14:00. However, you may explore not just as the Park, but must be a car/driver/guide (unfortunately barely intelligible English) for rent. You pay per car, so it can also share the price + entrance to the Park. Itself I think it's also good that not everyone he wants to can strut around in the Park... man so the animals control can protect against the tourists. After eternal wait was our guide called that 2 elephants have been sighted. We have watched the elephants along with about 20 others. Very shy at the beginning... they came at some point very close. Then later a whole family :) unfortunately had to we early leave the Park because we had on our bus to Hua Hin. The Park has opened up to 18: 00. Despite long wait I found super trip (are private with the roller by Hua driven... 1.5-2 h takes just under) – best time before stop and go eat. Park offer is limited (snacks, drinks,...). Super nice people met. Who is in the area should necessarily there out :) very beautiful park :)

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
