About the trip

With a little bit of luck, you will also get to see some other wild animals. During the walks and from the monitoring area, you can enjoy absolutely beautiful views and sceneries.

About the area

Kui Buri National Park is located next to one of the largest national parks of the country, Kaeng Krachan. Both parks are rich in flora and fauna and offer habitat to animals like the tiger, elephant, gaur, deer, porcupine, monkey, wild bear and an incredible number of bird species. Kui Buri is most famous for its wild elephant watching. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of deforestation around the park, which forces the elephants to move from the primary forest to secondary forest and plantation areas for feeding. The owners of the fruit plantations areas have tried many ways to chase away wild elephants and some have even been poisoned or killed. Fortunately, these days the local people have cooperated with the park rangers in monitoring the wild elephants and to take them back to the forest without harming them. In this way, the local people can benefit from tourism and the elephants have a chance to survive in this park.
