Things to See at Namuang Safari Park – Fun and Sun in Koh Samui

The island of Samui is a sunny haven where families can enjoy endless fun; adding to this marvellous experience are the adventures awaiting you at the Namuang Safari Park. Here are few to begin with.


A Mammoth of an Adventure with Elephants

Elephant lovers will find this one of the most rewarding experiences; at Namaung Safari Park your adventures with the gentle giants are varied and exciting. Elephant trekking through the dense jungle is the best way to experience the thick wilderness of Koh Samui. The elephant back safaris, trek through the thick foliage to reach the beautiful Namaung Waterfall. The experience is punctured with sights of exotic wildlife and a bird's eye view of the surroundings from your high perch. Don't forget the cameras folks!


Enjoy the Waterfall

Namaung Waterfall is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful in Thailand. It is the largest on the island and certainly one of the most impressive. Inlaid with giant rock formations and cocooned within a verdant green environment, the trek to the falls will all seem worth it, once you experience this marvel of nature. The cascade is made up of two falls, one falls from a height of 20 metres and offers a refreshing pool at its base for swimming; mind you take along the swimsuits as the cool calm water is perfect for rubbing out the aches and pains of your trek. Climbing higher you will come to the second fall, dropping 80 metres from the rocky ledge. There on offer is a great lookout point for photographers.


Monkeys and Their Antics

Elephants are not the only creatures to experience within this park. You will find the 'Coconut Monkeys' of Koh Samui to be quite fascinating. Monkeys have been used over time in this region to climb the tall palms and retrieve the ripe nuts, hence, in Koh Samui, it is now a huge attraction to watch the lithe animals shimmy up the narrow barks and retrieve the ripe coconuts. Located within easy reach of the safari park, Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort is amongst the options that make for a good base from which to explore the area and its many wild attractions; especially the many coconut groves where these monkeys are found.


4X4 Adrenaline Pumping Action

Notch up the thrill factor and enjoy a 4X4 safari into the wilds of Koh Samui. Easy to book from Koh Samui resorts, these tours that are conducted only by professionals are journeys that will drive you to Yaod Khao, 680 metres high and the most breathtaking lookout point on the island. From the summit of the islands highest point, you will see all of Koh Samui from north to south, as well as, Ang Thong National Marine Park and some of the surrounding islands.


Crocodiles to Fear and Dancing Baby Elephants

Not really dangerous, the crocodiles of Koh Samui are a safe distance from you and do put on quite a show. It's fascinating to watch the trained predators perform various tricks. The most prominent and daredevil act is when a trainer sticks his head into the open mouth of one of those huge creatures. You will also find that part of your safari into the park comprises of watching a cute show put on by performing baby elephants; a definite thrill for the kids.
