We drove from Hua Hin ourself and it was very easy with good roads all the way. Takes about 90 minutes. Don't arrive too early as the tours by pickup trucks only start at 2 PM and we didn't see any animals until gone 4. Having said that we saw several elephants with little ones very close up and the...

Kui Buri National Park undoubtedly is best place in Thailand to see elephants in the wild, making it a great wildlife safari destination. And besides elephants, I have a reasonable chance to see the world's largest wild cattle species, the Gaur. On 25 March 2017; I managed to make a trip there by renting car transfer service with driver from... More

Kui Buri National Park. Located about 1-1/2 hour south of Hua Hin, it is serviced by travel agencies in Hua Hin, or you can make y4our own arrangements. It is a place where elephants roam free and you can see other animals too. We rented a car, which was 920 baht at Budget. The agencies charge 1500 to 2000 baht/person,... More

At the second stop we stayed for almost 2 hours, watching an elefant herd of around 30 elefants with their babies. Im a... More

Trips into this beautiful park are run mostly at 14:00 and 16:00. you must go into the park with a guide in a open backed truck and you must obey the guidelines. We drove into the park and despite the best efforts of the guides found nothing more than a deer. I looked around whilst at one of the dis-mounting... More

A very exciting adventure. You go by a jeep in a beautiful landscape. The staff cover a large area and communicate with walkie-talkies to find the elephants. Finally after some sight-seeing in the forest we did see some elephants, two adults and a calf. We highly recommend going there.
