Siam Safari was the first company to start elephant trekking in Phuket in 1994. Having lived and worked with elephants since then they have encountered many problems concerning good health care, welfare and the conservation of these truly amazing but endangered animals.

You can join their tours to see their elephants, look at them, touch them, feed them, go trekking on them and realize how lucky you are to be able to encounter them. If you want your children and grandchildren to be able to experience elephants then you  must take action to help save them now.

Traveller’s Reviews of Siam Safari

 

Fabulous

Rating: 9 out of 10 ★★★★★★★★★☆ 

This was an awesome experience to ride an elephant for 30 minutes (all you need). Well run, organised, friendly and interesting and committed to elephant preservation. Highly recommend it.

 

Awesome day out

Rating: 9.5 out of 10 ★★★★★★★★★½ 

What a Brilliant day out with Siam Safari! certainly worth every penny. we were happy with the whole day from start to finish!  The great thing was there was only 3 of us on the tour (not sure why, it was the end of the low season..) so we felt very spoilt to have a massive buffet lunch to ourselves. We enjoyed the 4-in-1 day tour including the cruise on the Junk Boat.

Loved the Elephant ride, cooking demo, meeting the monkeys, ride on the buffalo as well as the great food, service and treatment of animals.  Highly recommend for all ages!!

 

The half day safari is all about the elephants

Rating: 8 out of 10 ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 

We booked this half day safari for our daughter’s 5th birthday whilst in Phuket and she and her 7 year old sister thoroughly enjoyed it. The trip was booked through Laguna tours but run by Siam Safari from start to finish. The 4 of us had our own guide throughout who provided good info and took lots of photos of us. The elephants seem well looked after and during the trek were left to ‘find’ their own way, grab leaves etc. without rebuke from the mahout – unlike Bang Pae safari which we did later in the holiday.

To be honest the other bits of the safari (rice husking demo, buffalo cart) were ok but it was all about the elephants.

 

Nice but unspectacular little safari – too much effort as a day trip

Rating: 6 out of 10 ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ 

We booked the one day safari in Khao Sok national park. While the safari itself – consisting out of approx. 50 minutes canoeing followed by lunch and an approx. 1 hour elephant safari – was pleasant (and the elephant feeding a highlight for our kids), we felt that the tour is not advisable as a one day trip. Although we were the last hotel pick up in the morning it took us more than two hours over partially bad backroads in a 12 person van steered by amateur Michael Schumacher – who by the way only slowed down after half the crew got roadsick. If you add one more hour from the first Phuket hotel pick up to our hotel, then in a worst case scenario you would drive more than six hours for the actual two hour safari.

In summary a nice day but in this set up not worth the trip/money/effort.
