After 3 weeks in the country, I really wanted to go to Kuiburi park to end it well.

Remember in my 1st blog on Thailand, my objective was to see and take pictures of 5 different wild animals.

Only one animal was missing from my 'list': the elephant.

I saw so many signs of their presence in Khao Yai park that I felt that with 2 or 3 days more a that place, I would have succeeded!!

But finally, I have reached my objective, (YAHOO!!!), in Kuiburi. And I didn't only see one elephant, but 17....

Park rangers told us we were lucky that day because we began to see animals around 2pm, and usually, tourist begin to see animals at end of the afternoon.

Is it because of the many storms there was the day before that created perfect conditions? Nobody knows.

The park is very well maintained and cared for.

The tours are done in pickup truck. Prices are very reasonable, compared to any African safari.

They give you plenty of time to take pictures, and you can do some walking safari as well.

Asian elephant with
tusks are rare, but we saw one.

I also saw a gaur, (kind of a wild bull), but didn't have time to take pictures.

check this video i took of the elephants' family crossing the road.

Next blog will be my conclusion on this trip.

Baby elephants are amazing. Just been looking through your blogs, great collection of reptile and arachnid photos! I couldn't see your blogs in the two Mexico trip folders, but will look again later. Cheers, Ren :)

Animals and Mexican trips
Hello, it's always a pleasure to follow your blogs!!! For me, to view wildlife is always one of my highlights when travelling. During my trip in Thailand, it was a real pleasure to see wild elephants and other animals that I had on my wish list. :-) Regarding Mexican trips, I saw mismatch between my blogs and my trips. I edited my blogs to change some dates so that it would be the time I was there, and not the time I wrote the blogs. I was not able to properly edit trips, so I deleted some and recreated them with a range to include the proper blogs. It does not show right away in blog's page, but possibly, changes will appear later. Please let me know. Thank you
