Eco Safari by 4-Wheel-Drive
Samui has more to offer than just its beautiful beaches, clear water and gorgeous scenery. It also has an impressive tropical forest and a seasonal fruit orchard that is yours to explore. This adventurous eco-safari will introduce you to the ‘other side’ of Samui. Travel in a 4-wheel-drive vehicle passing the local villages where mostly they are fisherman and farmers. Learn about the coconut—the nut that is the heart of the island’s original industry. Entering the safari park, you’ll leave the vehicle and switch to an entirely different and rather unusual mode of transportation—you will travel through the tropical jungle of Samui on the back of an elephant. Later, watch the adorable baby elephant show. Watch in delight as a trained monkey plucks a nut from high atop a coconut tree. Just in the same compound, step inside a local restaurant in the camp area for lunch; then, visit a rubber plantation to see how the farmers tap the tree for sap, and how it is transformed into sheets of rubber. Finally, enjoy free time in the main town to shop before returning to the ship.
