Kanchanaburi Safari Park [V2]

November 21, 2011 

The Safari Park in Kanchanaburi  is only 28 kilometers away  from the city. It  is an open style  zoo set  in a vast  natural  landscape  which  features a wide variety of animals to view and enjoy,  including  :  camels, tigers,  lions, bears, leopards,  elephants, deers, zebras, llamas, ostrich, flamingos, giraffes, parrots, etc.

The  park  also runs daily elephant and crocodile shows which are captivatingly entertaining  since they mainly highlight the  great intelligence of these specific animals.

You  can  tour  around  the  park in your own car, but the best recommended way to enjoy the visit is to take the park’s  sightseeing bus.

Before departure, bowls of food (bananas, vegetables, carrots, etc )  are  available  for sale for  just a few Baht, to hand feed the animals from  within the  bus . The  driver will then  take you slowly through each section, giving explanations as well as excellent photo opportunities.  Riding  the bus is really  great  fun  since it allows  you to get  « up close and personal »  with  several animals, most  notably the friendly  funny giraffes  which (without any danger) stretch their necks and push  their heads  all the way through the windows of the bus in a desperate carrot grab !

Visiting the Kanchanaburi Safari Park Open Z oo is definitely  great excitement for everybody, of all ages !

A  unique place, which offers the wonderful experience to cuddle  certain animals affectionately and even hug them around the  neck : a great experience, highly recommended.
