Pranburi Forest Park has one of the largest protected mangrove forests in Thailand. Visitors can view the mangrove forest from the Mangrove Nature Trail, which is a raised boardwalk spanning over the salt pools of Pranburi Park, but under the shade of the mangrove trees.
About half way along the boardwalk, depending on the level of the river, you may be able to take a long-tail boat (optional, at own expense) and journey along the Pranburi River, taking in the wildlife and exotic birds.
The boardwalk leads to a quiet but well maintained beach with public restrooms and food vendors. Additionally the are a number of restaurants in the area which sell a wide variety of food.
Following lunch at a local restaurant (optional, at own expense), the tour will then take you to Kui Buri National Park where you will be able to view elephants and gaurs in their natural habitat from two separate viewing areas inside the park. (Entrance fee not included).
