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

Ill keep it short: the trip we had was crazy cool. We booked a 2-day trip with 1 overnight stay. The first day we drove into the national park and visited a few spots to spot wildlife. 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

Well, it was over 2 years since my last visit, but we went yesterday with a friend. No reductions getting into the park yesterday for showing a Thai driving licence, but showing my Thai ID card, and my wife explaining that I was delivering business to the park swung it, and I still paid the Thai rate for admission to...

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.

You are taken out in a jeep with a guide. We also had our driver's 2 year old granddaughter. Fabulous as we had my 2 year old granddaughter with us! Our first glimpse of an elephant was about 5 minutes in. Most of the males were in musth so solitary, but were not a problem, as they have the freedom... More

It’s promoted as the best place in Thailand to see groups of elephants in their natural habitats and having visited a number of locations throughout the country, I’d say that would be an accurate assessment. According to the park guides, there are approximately 250 – 300 wild elephants in the vicinity of the national park. It’s well worth making the... More

How wonderful to see elephants in the natural setting, instead of caged up or chained up for human performance. Don't be intimidated by the logistics of visiting - the formal tours sold in Hua Hin town go only on Fridays, and a private tour was quite pricey. We ended up asking our cab driver one afternoon if he'd be willing... More

When we read about this np we decided to make the detour and it was definitely worth it! In my opinion Kui Buri is definitely nicer than for example Khao Yai as it is not nearly as busy (we didn't see any tourists at all) so it has a more authentic jungle feeling and we saw more animals here as...
