Changthai Thappraya Safari Park
Changthai Thappraya Safari and Adventure Park
In a country famed for its exotic jungles and wildlife, the Changthai Thappraya Safari and Adventure Park offers visitors a great opportunity to see some of this flora and fauna up close. However, as a full safari and adventure park, the establishment offers a lot more than just animals. Guests are free to try their hand at things such as shooting and ATV riding as well.
The park offers riding excursions on a number of steeds. As many visitors to Thailand are keen to try it, elephant trekking is one of the park’s most popular activities. Guests can ride in a carriage situated on the back of an elephant, guided by a mahout, or trainer, who has a special bond with each elephant as they raise them from youth.
Treks are available for either one hour or 30 minutes. Each one will allow visitors to get a true understanding of the sheer power and size of these elephants and better comprehend the importance these animals once held.
The one hour trek costs 800 baht for adults and 550 baht for children. The half hour trek is available at 600 baht for adults and 350 baht for children. After the trek, riders will be served fruit and drinks, and might also have a chance to feed the elephants and have their pictures taken with them.
For those who might want a more familiar steed, horses are also available for jungle ridges. The prices are the same for adults and children as they are for the elephant rides, so it all comes down to a matter of preference.
