The Famous place of Safari World Zoo in Thailand

Safari World is a zoo for those who don’t like zoos… of course like any animal parks it has some good and some not so good sides but here animals certainly do have huge amount of space to roam free. Opened since 1988, Safari World is divided in two distinct areas: The open space of Safari Park where you can drive through in your car or in the park bus represents 480 acres for its open zoo and 180 acres for its bird park, then the Marine Park which is more of a traditional zoo mixed with many shows, lots of food stalls and plenty of souvenir shops.

The open air Safari Park is a very impressive eight kilometres long land where animals wander freely and where human are just tolerated. The first part is home to many species of herbivores: zebras, camels, antelopes, gazelles, rhinos and an amazing amount of large birds: ostriches, pelicans, cranes, and nightmarish marabou storks. As you drive through, you can stop your car as you please to admire this large display of animals but need to respect few simple rules: drive slowly, don’t feed the animals, don’t honk or make loud noises.

You can even open your windows as long as you don’t step out of the vehicle. Further, an astonishing amount of giraffes gracefully walk around the feeding area, supposedly the largest herd in the world. It’s a really different experience to drive in the middle of free and healthy animals which are obviously not paying much attention to human visitors. The wilderness of Safari World is not something you could expect so close to a big frantic city.

But the mood changes a bit as you reach a couple of massive metal gates and above them a security lookout tower reminding of the entrance of Jurassic Park. Before opening the first gate a security guard voice firmly invites visitors to get back inside their cars and close all windows, then only the first gate slowly rolls side way and vehicles can move into a safety area.

Once the back gate is safely closed behind you, the one in front starts to open and you may enter the predators den. Even though you know animals are well fed and appear to be napping in the tree shade, rolling in the grass or even bathing (tigers seem to love bathing), you cannot remain indifferent to the size of the many tigers, lions and massive Himalayan black bears.
