Kiu Buri Promotes Sustainable Tourism Model

Kui Buri national park, Thailand's prime destination to see wild elephants and gaurs, promotes sustainable tourism model that was introduced and supported by His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Kui Buri national park located in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, Thailand, was established in 1999. Upon the park’s establishment in 1999, the King issued a special royal address calling for people to protect the elephants and their habitat. The park cover an area of 995 sq. km and is among the largest national parks in the country.

Althoughin terms of numbers and diversity of wildlife Kui Buri cannot compete with what the nearby Kaeng Krachan national park has on offer, and the natural beauty of the park is nowhere near to the amazing sceneries of the southern Khao Sok national park, Kui Buri attracts its fair share of visitors, too, both foreigners and Thais, because it is much easier to spot wild elephants in their natural habitat here.

With estimated 300 elephants roaming Kui Buri, elephant sightings is almost guaranteed any time of the year.

Kui Buri features quite a long rainy season from May till November but the park can be visited during this time, too. The elephants will be there anyway, going on a safari tour is not challenging at all as you spend most of the time in a jeep. The park rangers always provide umbrellas and the waterfalls are at their best – though reaching waterfalls can be quite challenging.

There is no public transport heading to the park. The nearest town is Kui Buri which is connected to Bangkok by trains and buses. The park can be visited as a part of a packaged tour or by your own but in this case you will need your own wheels.
