Taman Safari Bogor, Indonesia

Finally....continue on with our journey to Taman Safari (Safari Park) in Bogor Indonesia

 
After we left Raffles Resto, Gallery and Catering, we went straight to the Safari Park.

Entrance fees for those above 6 years old was :

Rp140,000(around RM45) for local 
Rp250,000(Around RM80) for international visitor. 

Entrance Fees for kids 5 years old and below was : 

Rp130,000(around RM40) for local
RP230,000(RM75) for international visitors.

Lucky for us as we were charged local visitors fees. Even if with International Visitors fees, it was real worth it as the fees includes touring the safari; watching various animals performance(elephants show, tiger & Lion Show, Sea lion show, birds of prey show, Dolphin show, Cowboy show, Globe of death show & various animals shows), Safari trekking and to play 24 type rides from the Amusement Park.  

I bet if Auntie Lina's family were there, they will sure go for Safari Trekking. 

There was even a Water Park in there but that one have to pay separate entrance fees la

Now I sound like advertising the place pulak. But then just wait till you scroll down the page and see all the fun we have had...and the most amazing part is we didn't even cover all the activities offered there as we ran out of time.


I was very excited...wanna feed the animals there


Errrr....elephants eats carrot ka?

Apparently they do.

 Then one lady with pretty eyes and long eye lashes came up to me and say...Hi! handsome...maybe I have some carrot please.


 
And then one become two..two become three...

Hi! my dear...you also want carrot?

Among all, we find that Zebra have the nicest table manners as Zebra would take time to chew its food and swallow first before asking for more.



HUH?

 
Hippo also wanna eat carrot?


 WOw! he sure have BIG BALLS horns.

 
Some place were slightly flooded by water from the mountain

 
Lucky Papa was clever as he bought one whole big bunch of bananas coz not even 1/4 of the route we had already given all the bananas and carrots that the driver helped us to buy earlier.

There were loads of animals there to be fed...zebra, deer, Tapir, camel, cassowary, bear, orangutan, giraffe, nyala, sheep, ostrich ...

Speaking or ostrich...they sure have very sharp teeth/beak leh....I was bitten by one before...that was when I was very young.

Feeding all these animals sure makes me hungry leh...errr....well...if the animals can eat the bananas...so can I lah.


Mamarazzi said she wanna snap photo of a "monkey" wor

Faster...roll up the windows.

Next come the Lion ..

And Tiger  place....

Soon we came to the end of our journey...but the other part was just beginning. 

I wanted to ride the Elephants. Papa asked the price ...aborted coz if not mistaken it was around RM80 for 15 minutes ride. Another one was RM10 or something for 5 minute ride. 



Instead I went for the free rides in the Amusement Park. Each rides can got on for one time only.

 
But I got to play more than once coz Papa gave me his wrist ban as he is not playing

Forced to smile coz Papa and Mamarazzi wanna move on to another part of the Safari. I haven't even finish playing all the rides leh.


 Lazy Leopard having an afternoon snooze.

Really fun leh in the Baby Zoo. I get to pat the Baby Orang Utan. There was a lot of nice scenery but we didn't get to roam much coz we were rushing to the Cowboy Show,

Caught a "train" that bring us right up to the top of the mountain . Yup! That's where the Cowboy show was located.


 
After getting down from the "train" we still had to climb up a pretty steep mini slope. 

 
No more energy liao....feeling like the Leopard liao.

Let's go! No more photo!


 
While waiting for the gate to open, Mamarazzi continued snapping photo...la....doesn't understand the word no ka?

 
 Why wanna sit so high...sit here la....nearer to the performance.

But then in the end it was lucky that we sat quite high coz the performance involves several explosions. The heat from the explosion was quite hot. There were a few explosion in the water. Those who sat in the first few rows got "free shower" when the explosions happens.


 
Though the entire show was in Indonesian language, I still find that t was very enjoyable. The actions made me laughed. Well done!


After the show, Papa asked if Mamarazzi want to catch the Globe of Death Show. She didn't want. All those bike zooming in the Globe...errr.....no lah...better bring me to the Amusement Park.



After a few rounds of kiddie rides, I was starting to feel bored. Wanted to play something more "challenging". The zooming Space Shuttle looks fun leh. Can hear many people screaming when the ship went "WHOOOSH!". Too bad I can't play coz did not meet the minimum height.

Papa and Mamarazzi was exhausted. They sat there resting while waiting for my "battery" to run out. They didn't know where my "off" button is.

It must have been all the exercise coz I came and gobbled up the meatballs from Papa's bowl of bakso.

Nooooo....I am not tired yet. I wanna play some more...there is that "house" everyone going in there...I wanna go in and see leh...Naughty Mamarzzi said it's "Haunted house"....but I don't believe la..I am not scared leh...

But Papa and Mamarazzi said no...we have to move on coz have to go to Bandung from there leh.

Supposed to visit the Flower Garden at Puncak but abandoned the plans coz Mamarazzi was exhausted and the sun was setting.

For those who wish to go for this Taman Safari, it's best to plan your activities and go early in the morning. Check the shows timetable ; then you will have more time to explore.


Wah...when we got back to the car..we discovered that not only Papa friend provided us with the transport for the day but he had also given up two BIG boxes of tarts!

I must say...the bakery over there really took their time and give it all they got when they made these tarts. It's just so dainty and taste real good. Hmm...my sweet "lunch" at sunset. 

Next stop.......

    1. RM80 mahal meh? No leh ...Zoo Negara if without MyKad already RM50 lor...if local RM30. And some of our local theme park price also higher than that leh...This Safari got so many shows and things to play and see wor. Dai tho lan lor...

      Delete
    2. OMG.. Really? Zoo Negara also RM50 ahh? Shame on me.. I have to admit I never took the kids to Zoo Negara b4 leh.. That's why I don't know the price..

      Delete
    3. Are you serious RM50 for zoo negara entrance? That is day light robbery, man! I think I paid about RM12 donkey years ago and yet I find that it is expensive and not really worth it!

  6. I heard about this Safari before. The interesting part is having to feed the animals from your car. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  7. wah, the long overdue post on the Indonesia trip!! hahaha.. okay okay, rewind a bit so that i recall mamarazzi went to Indonesia first.. :p

    eih, this Safari Park looks very interesting leh, a lot more interesting than our Zoo Negara lah.. but then one thing i find funny, the entrance fees for adults and kids below 5 are only RM5 difference?? i thought should at least half the price if not free lah.. but lucky you being charged the local rates, errrr, maybe mamarazzi looks like Indonesian?? hehe~~ :p

    interesting feeding the animals from inside the car, and close encounters with live animals too!! i think only those vegetarian animals are more friendly?? the lions and tigers seemed to be more ego, or maybe they know the tourists only have carrots and bananas and no meat for them, so they also lazy to go near.. or even if they try to go near, the tourists will fled away!! :D

    monkey in the car also wanted to eat the bananas?? hahaha.. eat already feel more excited for the rides huh?? but not much time to play because the park is really huge and got so many things to see.. and really a good experience lah, got the opportunity to get close encounters with the animals and somemore can touch the orang utans!!

    and mamarazzi was very smart and wise!! when watching all these performances, better don't get so close to the stage, because sure will kena the water splash and probably being brought up to the stage to be made out a fool of by the host, haha.. always safer to stay further and keep a distance dei~~ :)

    i wonder what time did mamarazzi reach the Safari Park?? yeah, looking at the huge park and so many things to see and so many activities to do, it's wise to go there early morning and also more worth the stay lah, haha!!

    oh paparazzi's friend so sweet and caring.. he got the tarts for you all while you were having fun inside the park!! next time if he comes to KL, sure Small Kucing must take out money from his piggy bank and belanja Uncle to makan okay?? :p

    1. too many photos to sort out. Just like Anay. Now I know why anay took so long to come out with a post. food post is much easier

      Coz the driver indonesia mah. He open mouth and buy the tickets lor so got cheaper

      of course la lari far away...takut kena tangkap go up the stage LOL

      reached there around noon. so we had a few hours there only. Initially thought go there 2-3 hrs then go botanical garden. But not enough time lor,

      There were rangers car/truck at the lion and tiger compound. Guess they will help if needed la.

  13. Honestly, I might get scared to see animals so close up to me! When I took the night tour of Singapore's Safari, I had goose bumps and shaky legs all the time as the roars of the lions and tigers scared me like hell in the dark. I prefer this one in Indonesia as you are safe inside the car.

  14. They really staged a daylight robbery to charge so high for elephant rides!!! Crazy!
    You can ask Kaldip for free rides inside the hotel room and just give him pisang la! LOL
