Camel Republic near Hua Hin is both amusement park and zoo. A fun place for adults and children alike, visitors can enjoy feeding and interacting with animals as camels, alpacas, birds and bunnies. The park offers a variety of entertainment including several fun and thrill rides, mini moto quad racing on a track and a small indoor amusement park for kids.

The Moroccan design style gives the place a Middle Eastern feel. Camel Republic is well maintained and clean. Food and drinks, ice cream, snacks and souvenirs are available at several shops and stands.

The camels and other animals

The stars of Camel Republic are camels, large animals that live in the Middle East and North Africa. They have served carrying people and heavy loads for centuries. Another species of camelid are the alpacas, fairly small animals that look like llamas and originate from South America.

Other animals at Camel Republic include Patagonian Maras, ponies, giraffes, various birds, and ducks and swans. At the Bunny Village children can pet and feed rabbits.
