Leaned a lot about all plants and animals they have there. The animals may be in small cages but are taken care off. Most of the animals are rescued.

I thought this would be full of beautiful butterflies so we stopped by mistake. It’s more of a small holding with caged animals although the host is very friendly. There are monkeys on chains, a caged otter, fish in a very muddy pond plus a...More

Fantastic day out if you enjoy seeing animals suffer!! There are many instances of animal cruelty and neglect here in thailand. But eagles, monkeys and otters here are kept in sad small cages with no space or love. Please don't support this.

There are many negative reviews about this place. I would like to correct this view. Yes, the animals are caged or on leashes. But they would probably be dead if not for the people at this place. They rescue and take in injured and abused...More
