Safari World

Parrots in Safari WorldAlthough located just outside Bangkok in Min Buri, about a two hour journey from Pattaya, Safari World is most certainly worth visiting. It is Thailand's largest open-air zoo and leisure park with a vast range of activities, attractions and shows to suit all tastes and all age groups, from toddlers to grandparents. Safari World is actually in two sections; Safari World itself and Marine Park. They opened to the public in early 1988 and major developments were started in 1989 and the total land area of the complex now covers more than 480 acres.

Take a car or coach trip through the picturesque wilderness setting in the eight kilometre long Safari Park and get incredibly close to lions, tigers, giraffes, rhinoceros, zebras, cheetahs, ostriches and numerous spectacular birds, all roaming free in their natural surroundings. Then, in the Marine Park, take a jungle river cruise in a flume ride through thick reeds populated by gorillas and lurking crocodiles. Throughout the whole complex there are many presentations featuring rare and endangered species, such as polar bears and white tigers, along with other fascinating animals, birds and marine creatures.

Safari World and Marine Park are also home to eight world-class shows, from stunt displays to animal performances. The Tiger in Safari WorldStunt Show is set in the Wild West, where stuntmen perform death-defying exploits with fists, bullwhips and guns. Spy World is held in a state-of-the-art amphitheatre, where breathtaking action takes place on land, sea and mountainside, with deafening explosions, gunfire and dazzling stunts executed by paratroopers. Safari world also features dolphin, bird, orangutan and sea lion shows. The latest addition, opened in 2007, is Egg World which has informative displays about egg incubation and actual skeletons of egg-laying species, from crocodiles and turtles to all kinds of birds.

Open from 9 am to 5 pm, with numerous places to eat, Safari World and Marine Park is the perfect place for an entertaining and enjoyable family day out.
