Taman Safari. The Indonesian Safari

February 25th, 2009

I went to Taman Safari last Saturday (Feb 21st, 2009) with my family. We started at 6 am from home, arrived there at about 8.20. The road was not crowded like it usually is on weekends, it’s great..

Before we arrived to the place, we bought a few carrots for feeding the animals. The price was Rp 2500 each tie and we bought 4 ties. When we get there it was still closed. So we wait in line for a few minutes with the other cars.

The gate was open at 9.00 (On Sundays it opens at 8.30), the entrance tickets price was Rp 165.000 for 3 people (Adrian was not counted). First we saw a few bunch of elephants standing in a group.. then we found zebra, deer, cow, buffalo, etc.: all the herbivores animals. dsc000691They were not afraid of us, instead they approached us and put their head near the window hoping we’d give them food. So we gave them the carrots one by one. Adrian was so excited. He kept saying “I dare to touch them! I’m brave.. I’m brave…”. Yea right, he kept saying that to deny that he’s actually a bit scared of them.

dsc00080A few kilometers ahead we found another gate. This time we were getting into the carnivores’ place. There were lions, tigers, white tigers, leopard, etc. We had to shut our windows tight, shouldn’t stop and kept moving. They were so beautiful! The Safari must had been taken care of them real good, they were all clean, fresh, even they’re living in a “cage”. Actually what was so called cage was real big with all the artificial habitat, but I think it was almost like a real one. Read more…
