You can see a lot of animals like zebra, deers, tigers, lions and bears and it is definitely not limited to those animals. There are lots of things to discover at Safari World. There is a tour pack which also includes Marine Park and that is a must-take tour in Thailand.
Safari World is divided into three parts. The biggest and the first part is for cars and busses and 480 acres in total. This part is called the open zoo. The second park is a bird park where you can see all the different types of birds in one place. The third part is where the zoo stuff is happening, but do not think of the traditional zoos because Marine Park is not like anything you have ever seen. In Safari World’s third place, the Marine Park, you can pay for watching various types of animal shows and eat the famous Thai street food. There are lots of gift shops in Marine Park if you are planning to buy stuff for yourself, your family or your friends.
There are some rules you need to know
The open part of the zoo is the place where animals wander freely and not kept in cages. It is actually the place for animals and not for humans. The eight kilometers long zoo’s first part has every kind of herbivores such as zebras, camels, antelopes, gazelles and rhinos. But that is not all! There are also bird species like ostriches, pelicans, cranes, and nightmarish marabou storks. You can drive your car in this part of Safari World and stop whenever you want to look at this fantastic animal species. But of course, there are some rules that you have to follow while doing that:
- Do not feed the animals.
- Drive slowly.
- Do not honk or make noises that can disturb the animals.

Jurassic Park Zone
However, there is another place in the Safari World that is guarded by security and metal gates and it is called the Jurassic Park. If you want to go inside, you have to be inside of your car with all the windows closed, and then the gate would be open for you.
When you go in, there is another metal gate that will be opened to the predators den. Even though the animals are fed regularly and seem like napping peacefully, it is only natural to get intimidated by the size of the tigers, leons and black bears.
There are camouflaged cars everywhere to ensure your security. If you have trouble with the animals or with your car, do not ever try to get out of your car. There is a clear statement of that you should just honk and wait for help to reach you if you are having any disturbance. The best time to visit the Jurassic Park is the morning since they will be fed in the mornings.
Safari World: Marine Park
When you are done with the Safari World, we recommend you to visit Marine Park. It is more of a traditional park with caged animals but the shows that animals are putting on stage is making the difference. If you want to visit, you have to arrange a day where there are at least ten shows and that shows includes the elephant show. Most of the shows are arranged in a big amphitheatre, and if you are going to the Marine Park with your child, we are sure that s/he will love it!
The most attracting show is the dolphin show, and definitely the most popular one among other ones. Do not miss the the giraffe feeding since it will be an unforgettable memory to bring back home and tell friends.
