Hua Hin Safari 

& Adventure Park

Overview

Hua Hin Safari and Adventure Park is a relatively new setup just twenty minutes outside Hua Hin. It is in the middle of some lush countryside, down rather small poorly kept roads and does not seem to get that many visitors. Despite this, the venue is continually breeding and expanding, building new areas for the tigers. The setup is very professional and the place appears managed well on an aesthetic level. There aren't just tigers here however, the park also has elephants for riding and a small zoo containing a giraffe, macaws and various monkeys and gibbons.
