Safari World

Overview

3.6

Safari World, Bangkok is a large safari and leisure park on the outskirts of Bangkok. Self-described as "The World of Happiness", this park is home to a myriad of animals, all of which seem to be growing in numbers. The attraction first opened in 1988 and has been going strong ever since, expanding into more than 500 acres of land that is made up of a safari zone, zoo and aquarium. Among all of these sections are numerous shows including a cowboy show, tiger feeding, sea lion show, dolphin show, orangutan boxing show and bird show.
