Kui Buri National Park is known to be the best place in Thailand to spot elephants and relatively good chance to spot gaurs, and that sometimes in big herds.
Due to strict regulations this half-day wildlife safari tour doesn’t include any hiking activities apart from leaving the vehicle for short walks to viewing areas, you will only be allowed to do safari driving.
The tour is from 14:30 to 18:00pm.
After a mandatory registration, you will get assigned an open-air vehicle with driver and an assistant. The tour will begin by driving slowly into the reserve on the main dirt road north heading to the main grassland areas. While driving slowly, you will search for any wildlife including birds or any other other smaller as well as bigger animals. Your first stop will be a viewing area where we leave the vehicle in hope to spot wildlife, mainly elephants. You will later on continue to the next viewing area at the end of the road, best known for spotting gaurs, but also elephants and sometimes bantengs.
During the tour, your guide will give you information about the habitat, wildlife and history of the park.
Since Kui Buri is about 2 hours drive from Hua Hin, we recommend that you leave the guesthouse by noon, so you will arrive on time for registration.
