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;...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...More

There is no reason to seek accommodation near the park. You can not explore the park on your own, only with guides and the park does not conduct the tours until 2 pm. Stay in Hua Hin.

Hi, At the moment, I have 3 friends here, and they like to see the elephants in the national park. Maybe we will come with 5 persons and like to visit the national park to see the elephants. I live in Thap Sakae and my friends are here only until 16. January, than they go back to Bangkok. So we have to come before 16. January. Is there a possibility that we can visit the National park before 16. January? Best regards and have a nice day Thomas Brandl We don't know, where we have to contact for?

Hi, I'm a little confused about visiting Kui Buri National Park. How easy is it to visit the park independently without hiring a separate company? I see there are tour companies online but it appears you can just show up to the park independently and the national park staff will pair you with a ranger and car is this correct? Could someone let me know if you can book this in advance or how easy is it to just show up to the park and be able to get inside? (I don't know if they have limited numbers of staff/cars?) Finally, what are the times you can book a tour/car and how long can you stay inside the park...I saw someone mentioned 2-6pm, does that mean you have to leave the park by 6pm or is that the last time they take visitors inside? Basically, I"m just worried about logistics since I'm on a tight time frame. Thank you for your help! (oh and if someone could just remind me of pricing one more time--it's 200 baht/person then 850baht for the truck--is that correct?) Thanks so much! My brother and I are trying to plan this but trying to do hikes and see wildlife without going over our budget is making me a bit stressed :) --THANKS SO MUCH! (PS we are going in Jan in case it matters)
