Bogor: Taman Safari

Taman Safari Bogor is located near the highway between Jakarta and Bandung, West Java. It is about 80 kilometres (50 mi) from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta and about 78 kilometres (48 mi) from Bandung.

Taman Safari with about 170 hectares (420 acres) has around 2,500 animals, the majority of which are Indonesian, including Bengal tigers, Giraffe, Malayan Sun Bear, Orangutan, Hippo, zebra, cheetah, elephants, and komodos. There are also many conserved faunas here, including the Bali Starling, a small white Mynah bird. The safari is a drive through and it is possible to be extremely close to all the animals. The animals can literally stick their heads in your vehicle if you do not keep your windows closed as advised. Most of the herbivores can be fed vegetables from your vehicle though this is not condoned by the park and may result in scratches and dents from large animals like bulls and Blackbuck crowding your vehicle. Six wildlife shows are on property including a Wild West Show, Dolphin Show, and Elephant Show.

Also, inside the amusement park section of Taman Safari are a few small rides and exhibits that include Humboldt Penguins, bats, nocturnal animals from Indonesia and India,wallaby, crocodiles, and kangaroos. Camping and bungalows are available for guests who would like to pay to stay in the park overnight.

The zoo features a small petting zoo which is themed to look like the Taj Mahal. The petting zoo also includes photo areas where for a small fee guests can take pictures with various animals such as baby lions, tigers, and leopards.

Taman Safari's map that a guest receives at the front gate says "National Tourism Site Indonesian Center for Reproduction of Endangered Wildlife." This seems to be true as occasionally the animals can be seen mating by guests.
