Safari World Bangkok is definitely one of my 99 Panya Indra Rd, Sam Wa Tawan Tok, Khlong Sam Wa is one of my top favorite places in Bangkok… and it will be for those who love interacting with wild animals….
Safari World Bangkok has been around since 1988 and this wild life park gets more better day by day
This awesome tourist attraction is about an hour’s drive out of Bangkok city and divided into two areas: Safari Park and Marine Park.
On my second trip there, I headed to the Marine Park first…
The Marine Park is pretty much like a traditional zoo where you can view animals, birds, reptiles & mammals in enclosed spaces. …
However, there are places where you get to see animals perform tricks and there are places where you get to feed and pet the animals as well as photo spots with the animal stars of the safari world… yeah I know, to some people this is not something they like and they prefer to see animals in the forest and such, but we are living in a world where animals are going extinct because of global warming and loss of habitat and all and sometimes it is safer and better for them to be in forest reserves or zoos provoded they are cared for…
And to some people like me, I love getting a chance to be near wild animals… yeah, this is my chance to get near these beautiful animals…
There is never a dull moment in Safari World with its space and shows and one of the highlights of their shows would be the Dolphin show where you can watch these intelligent mammals perform a variety of tricks in a special large amphitheater.
It is such an entertaining presentation of their skills and natural mental power. They can easily follow instructions like twirling in the water or jumping up in the air.
There is also a Sea Lion show, an Elephant & a Bird show., as well as a Cowboy Stunt show, a James Bond-style Spy show & a Water Ski show as well as a controversial Orangutan Muay
I also had a fun time meeting and feeding the kangaroos at Camp Kangaroo (this really made me feel like I was in the Australian outback) and the camels before pausing for a quick lunch at Tiger Burger kiosk…
And no, in case you are wondering Tiger burger is not made from tiger meat… rather it got its name from the crying tiger Thai dish prepared from grill beef….
And that is basically what you get- a delicious burger with crying tiger beef patty….it comes with fries and a drink…..
When we finished with the Marine Park, we headed out to go to the Safari Park
But this time my trip to the Safari Park was different and my friend and I , along with a few other tourists were locked inside a caged lorry for about 45 minutes.
This was kind of a turnabout since ironically, we were all locked in the cage and not the animals. But we were all given a bucket of fresh chicken parts and tongs!!!!
Yeah!!!! Instead of just watching the lion and tiger feeding show, this was our opportunity to feed the lions and tigers!!!!! Yeah we joined the Safari feeding activity and were now given a chance to go feed some of the most dangerous cats in the world!!! There are a few sessions a day which you can participate!!!
This new attraction at the Safari World is truly only for the bold and the brave!!! We were all taken into the open park marveling at the beauty of the African-like wilderness while seeing the zebras, giraffes, camels and white rhinoceros
We also passed a lot of storks, gaur, watusi, wildebeests and oryxes. As well as the smaller horned animals like the impalas and fallow deers. Before continuing our trip deep to the Safari Park with pounding hearts to meet the dominant felines… the lions and the tigers!!!!
I gingerly pick up a raw chicken breast from the bucket and dangle it ouside the cage through a small feeding hole and the lions start standing on their back feet with their massive paws in front of my face as they ate the meat offered… we could here disgruntled growls as well as a little bit of scuffle
I was definitly in awe with thie close up view of the Kind of Beasts… we offered them half the meat from the bucket before saving the other half for the tigers…
Just like how the lions are fed, we also got the opportunity to feed the other magnificent and powerful striped cats who came to get their food from the steel cage.
I almost wanted to feel the rough fur of the tigers during the feeding, and I for one was fascinated by their gigantic paw beans and the sight of their massive jaws clamping over the meat proffered as I stand closely to some of the most vicious predators in the jungle…
It was truly an experience not to be forgotten….
When all the meat was gone, the lorry carrying us headed to the last section of the Safari Park where the bears were before returning to base and allowing us out of our cages….
