This little place is something different. It is all donated animals that would probably be killed otherwise. They have a little monkey, a crocodile, pot belly pig, goats, ducks, geese, rabbits. Lots of types of fish including, catfish, pacu, talapia, arapaima and lots more. There's also a river rapids for a nice cool down. Definitely worth a look

A great break from the beaches, especially if you have children. The place itself may be a little run down, but your surrounded by greenery and animals and its a fantastic feeling. If feeding fish, petting rabbits, feeding little goats and ducks is something you would like doing, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours.

We came here after a tour and visited this poor animals. They look so bad, get treated in a shame way and can't live their live. It is so bad to see this and we would never come back. Hint: Mind this place and go on a better place

Nothing much. Don't waste your time coming here. But the lady owner was a nice lady. We finished going 1 round within 10mins

Animals in poor condition, small enclosures. I regret ever going there. The area cold be so beautiful but the owners seem to think tourists love visiting the dump.

We were taken here after elephant trekking and it was an awful experience. From the outside the grounds are very run down with lots of junk outside. On entering the farm there was a monkey chained up, it was clearly very distressed, a young girl was trying to untangle the chain but this seemed to be distressing the monkey more.... More

Such a fantastic experience, the animals have a brilliant life and are treated well, unlike some other parts of Thailand. There's so much more than just catfish to see - there are crocodiles, baby goats, ducks, a monkey (who I was able to go swimming with!), a huge Amazonian arapaima which was bigger than me, and elephants in the neighbouring...

This place is like its owner, a bit eccentric. It really is set in the jungle, the paths are like jungle paths, overgrown but to me, my wife and our four year old son, this added to the mystique! We saw, the pig, the crocodile (the one low point, in a cement hole with no water) the arapiema, elephants, skinks,... More

As per earlier reviews, the map does not reflect the layout and the path is very overgrown. We were there in low season so presume this is why we only saw a cat, some fish, croaky, tortoise and some chickens. Elephants were cool to see, across from the path. My 3 year old daughter enjoyed it, I found it bizarre.... More

I am glad I read the reviews about insect repellent before I went!! We paid about 50 baht per person to get food and enter. The first thing we saw were turtles, they weren't very interested in the food. We saw signs for crocodiles, but since we were the only ones there, we were a little scared to walk down... More
