Best place to watch wild elephants
Facts about Kui Buri national park
We continue our must see campaign. This time it is Kui Buri National Park.
When you are in Thailand and want to see elephants and gaurs (buffaloes) in wilderness and in its own habitat, Kui Buri is the place.
Kui Buri National Park says it is almost 99% sure to see elephants and gaurs and it is known to be the best place for sighting. Kui Buri National Park has the largest population of gaurs in entire Thailand with estimated around 100 individuals and around 320 elephants.
The forests consists of dry- and moist evergreen forests with trees such as Dipterocarpus tuberculatus, Hopea odorata, Terminalia chebula and different species of palms and many species of birds and butterflies.
The park opened in 1999 and has almost 1000 km₂ area of forest, hills, water and all what the animals need for a life in the wild.
Watch the wild life
You can have a one day trip or even a night in a bungalow in the national park.
The animals are most active in the evening which is why the park is only open from 14:00 to 18:00 o’clock. In our package deal you will get transfer to the national park, entrance fee, paid English guide and safari vehicle lunch and transfer home.
When we come to the park we will jump to the safari jeep and into the park. The first part of the trip is mostly amazing nature but you will see that elephants have been here. You might see deer as well in the first part. After a little jeep drive you reach a view point and ranger station. The rangers in the park will communicate to the driver so the driver know where to go in the park to make sure that the visitors gets the best experience and be most sure to see elephants.
There are five great view points and you might be lucky to see the elephants taking an evening bath. The gaurs are also going around in herds and recently a herd of 70 gaurs was seen near a ranger station.
This is an extraordinary experience to watch gaurs and elephants in the wild and not as a pet or in a show. This is real life for the elephants.
