my previous review was rejected so let me try again. This place is not suitable for people who dislike seeing chained animals. The drivers of the 4x4 vehicles are insufficiently trained in safety and do not understand the limitations of the vehicles. I would not recommend this place.

I went through the park to go to the waterfall. Animals are chained and look stressed. Please don't support animal torture - pay to go to an animal sanctuary not here

Because I agreed with them all. We went there just wanted to see how the waterfall looks like. First trap, you will ask to pay a hundred baht for go and back by off-road car. We were showing a really steep and pumpy road and we thought it's worth money to pay. But on the way back, we went on... More

Our cruise ship shore excursion says we are to travel through the tropical jungle of Samui on the back of an elephant. Our mahout was friendly and showed only love for his elephant whose name I can neither pronounce nor spell. Our ride was pleasant with a couple of stops for photos of us on the elephant. As for the... More

We booked a tour to this place - elephant ride and waterfall visit - pick up 830am and return to hotel at 1.15pm. They drove us back at 11.30am. What a rip off!!! The positive side is we didn't have to remain at this disgraceful 'tourist attraction' for longer than we had too. We booked and paid for a 30... More

I visited as part of an island safari. Enjoyed the elefant ride, not so much the elefant show which is a spectacle worse than a zoo. And the elefants are kept chains on their legs. The waterfalls and surrounding tropic forest are pleasant albeit not stunning. It's a pleasant part of a trip but I would not spend half a... More

I visited this place in May so better to go when the weather is cloudy otherwise it's too hot and no way to enjoy the animals and nature view. We went there ourselves without any special touristic tour and it was nice to choose what to see and what to do without any program of tour (we reached their by... More

We went to the safari park as part of a tour package. The tour included elephant trekking which we declined and the elephant and monkey show. We previously stayed at Elephant Hills in Khao Sak which lets you experience elephants in their natural and ethical environment. The mahouts in elephant hills respect the elephants and never use physical harm as... More

It's definitely worth going to the safari park and heaps to do, ride an elephant, atv's, waterfall, hug a cheetah or tiger and also a show on as well. I've taken a few people here and they've all loved it.
