Located on 440 acres of land, this park is indeed a fantastic haven for children and adults alike. It comprises the Safari Park, where wild animals like zebras, deer, giraffes, tigers, lions and bears prowl freely in commune with nature and the Marine Park, where marine animals dip, dive and explore their watery habitat. There are daily shows like the Orangutan Boxing Show, Sea Lion Show, The Bird Show, White Tiger Show, Stuntman Show, Dolphin Show. The park is open throughout the year and you can even avail the coach services at the park.
simpanses were kept in a very small dirty gages. They all looked really bad. Other animals seemed to suffer also. Very disturbing for the kids. Pure hell for animals. Hopefully they will shut down such places. Not a real zoo or animal park at all. Staff was on our heels and kind of inpolite all the way. I guess video kameras made them uneasy. No wonder why!
this place was terrible. workers constantly stalked me..i couldnt get away..they treated me horribly too! how rude could one thai person be..i dont know..all i know is..if i wanted dirty looks and being shuved and pushed around i would have just visited New York!!
Safari world is pretty amazing and the place has a plethora of different species of animals.The place is very vast and quite well maintained and the theme shows are very good (especially the Spy War),with realistic stunts and good props.However,the actors spoke in Thai,so I couldn't understand a world they were saying.But I was quite disturbed by the tretament of some of the animals.The lions in the open safari looked very sickly and scrawny(lions are not suited to the humid tropical climate!).The orangutan show was very funny,but I felt that it was a bit exploitative.But the MOST DISTURBING thing at Safari World was that 3-4 tiger cubs were put in extemely tiny cages and strolled around the park so visitors could feed them a bottle of milk and take a photo for 350 baht!!(all this lasts for probably less than a minute)My heart broke and I actually wanted to rescue the poor animals.The lunch buffet was inedible but thankfully there were plenty of food stalls and kudos to the numerous bathrooms which were set up all over the place(they were quite clean also).Overall,a pretty good plalce but the maltreatment of those poor tiger cubs should certainly be stopped.
I went to Safari World as my travel agent had booked us tickets on our recent trip to Bangkok.The place is massive and quite well maintained and there are a plethora of different animals in the park.I was particularly disturbed by the treatment of some of the animals.The lions in the safari looked very scrawny and sickly,I don't think the humid tropical climate suits them.Also the orangutan show was hilarious and the apes were unbelievably well trained to carry out all sorts of humorous activities but I couldn't help but feel a bit guilty and sick at seeing them do those things.I thought it was quite exploitative.But the MOST DISTURBING thing of all was that tiger cubs were placed in very tiny cages and strolled around the park so visitors could feed them a bottle of milk and take a photo for 350 baht!!!!!(for about a minute)That was clearly the limits of exploitation of those poor animals and my heart literally broke and I wanted to rescue the poor animals.Apart from that,the theme shows were pretty amazing,the stunts were very realistic,however it was all in Thai,so couldn't understand what the actors were saying.The buffet lunch was pretty bad and the desserts were inedible.Overall it's a pretty amazing place but I think the establishment needs to STOP the maltreatment of those poor tiger cubs.
I have been to Bangkok many times and never been here but have heard a lot of good things about it. For sure next time I will go. It is 600 baht ( about 18 dollars with a weak buck ) so its not cheap ( unless you earn Euros or pounds) but the kids are only a buck and a quarter... The thing that used to annoy me about Thailand is foreigners always get ripped off. If you go to a water fall or national park and you pay 5 - 15 times more than the Thais do. Try doing that in Europe or the States.... lawsuits for sure.... its called discrimination. But it is what it is, so deal with it or don't go. I am used to it and it doesn't bother me anymore. I am just telling you this so you don't get ticked off at the ticket counter when you see a Thai buy a ticket for 40 baht and you have to pay 600 baht... it doesn't matter if its fair just enjoy yourself - T.I.T ( this is Thailand )
We travelled there with two kids and loved the whole experience. It was as exciting for us adults as it was for the kids. The whole concept is designed to provide instant gratification - no waiting around for a tiger or a lion to appear from behind a bush, they are hanging around in dozens all over. The dolphin show was great too but the entire commentary was in Thai language so could not understand. There are many amusing things if you just walk around the place like clicking photographs with a baby tiger, chimps or dozens of macaws. We spent only half a day there but think a full day visit can also be fun. Winter is a good time to visit since Bangkok can be terribly hot otherwise. The only sad part of the day was the buffet lunch (we opted for the thai option and the food was below average). Everything else was simply great.
I agree whole-heartedly with the opinion of one of the above writers. It is exactly as you would see the animals on discovery channel, only better. Where else in the world could you observe animals that have been trained in these useful skills; the combat art of Mua Thai for the chimpanzees; parrots that can actually ride a bicycle. I feel that these animals have been led towards evolution of their species. Should they be reintegrated into the wild then the have amassed invaluable skills that they can pass onto their relatives in the wild. What could be more useful to protecting themselves in the wild than being given gloves and taught the art of Mua Thai. On what better way to get around in the jungle than being able to ride a bicycle across a high wire. Why should we deny these animals to evolve in the way humans have under the pretense that it is cruel to teach them these vital skills. It is surely cruel that they are not training the other species in these skills. Why not train an elephant to use a bulldozer, useful given there traditional jobs and skills in Thailand have been surpassed by mechanisation. Or a zebra that can bungee jump, it must be boring for them wandering around the Serengeti. I loved it!!
A LOT OF WATER WOULD QUENCH THE HEAT. THIS PALCE IS WONDERFUL. VERY EDUCATIONAL FOR THE CHILDREN AND AMUSING TO THE YOUNGTERS.
I DON'T KNOW WHY IT DID NOT PLEASE THE OTHER VISITORS, MAKING SUCH BAD REVIEWS OF THE PLACE. WHY DID THEY VISIT IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. THEY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.
ANIMALS HERE ARE WELL-TREATED. THEY LOOK HEALTHY TO ME. JUST THE SAME AS IN THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL.
TAKE THE TOUR THROUGH AN OPERATOR. YOU'LL GET A BETTER DEAL ESPECIALLY WITH THE BUFFET LUNCH AND OTHER FUN STUFFS. DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!!!!
Safari World was one of the best trips that I made in Thailand. We spent a whole day in this amazing place, where we attempt 5 shows (dolphins, birds, tigers, Wild West (cowboy style show), James Bond Show (with fights just like the movie) and many others, we saw many animals and took a lot of pictures, I don t know why some of the visitors didn�t like the place, as I read in the previous reviews, I found this place amazing, the animals are very healthy and clean, u can take pictures with them, I may agree that the tigers are a big thinner then needed, but all the other animals are well treated, to an extend that some big cages that are as big as a 2 or even 4 rooms, contain one or two birds so it is not crowded at all.
I will go again and again to Safari World, although I agree that it is very hot place.
This 'Zoo' is horrible. Animals should be in the wild or at least kept in acceptable conditions. DO NOT go to this hobbible place. If you have any consideration for animal welfare you will not promote animal cruelty.
