Khao Pratap Chang Open Zoo

Khao Pratap Chang Open Zoo is directly across from the Department of National Parks (DNP) breeding facility of the same name, where a large number of the Tiger Temple tigers now reside. The Open Zoo offers free access to the public (donations welcome) and houses a number of different animal species rescued by the DNP, such as a camel, various deer and the two tigers.
