Safari Park

If you visited Jakarta and love animal, I think you also need to visit the Taman Safari (Safari Park). Taman Safari is a natural wildlife collects various wild animals where you can drive into a path that most animals roamed freely. Animals such as zebras and deer, they tended to stick their heads into the car as they munched onto the carrots you held.
Here you can meet with the youngest animals. You also can take a picture with young Orang Utans, white and the endangered Sumatran tigers, African Lion. Watch and learn the Orang Utans, Chimpanzee, Proboscis Monkeys and more as they swing from branch to branch in their unique cultural settings as well as Cheetah, the fastest land animal in the world.
Taman Safari surrounded by the beautiful panorama and fresh atmosphere with temperature 24-25oC, it also has supporting facilities such as; recreational park for children. There are dozens of rides and games designed to be fun for people of all ages.
The location Taman Safari Indonesia is in the highway between Jakarta and Bandung West Java. It is just 80 km drive from Soekarno – Hatta International Airport Jakarta or only 1.5 – 2 hours by vehicle. While from Bandung, it is 78 km or 3 hours by car. If using a public transportation / bus from Jakarta or Bandung, stop at Cisarua / Safari T-Intersection then continue by Ojek (hired motorcycle) or Angkot (local public transportation) to reach Taman Safari Indonesia in 10 minutes.

If you take a bus form Jakarta, you go to Kampong Rambutan the Bus station in East Jakarta, or you can take the train or bus to Bogor, then transit by Angkot (Public Transportation) to Cisarua and continue by the mini angkot to Taman Safari Indonesia.

From Soekarno Hatta International Airport, you can take DAMRI Bus direct to Bogor City then transit to public transportation to Cianjur or Cisarua. Stop at the Safari T-intersection then continue by Ojek (hired motorcycle) or Angkot (local public transportation) to reach Taman Safari Indonesia in 10 minutes.

Of course hire a car complete with a driver will give you a more personal experience than taking a bus. Before you entering the Taman Safari I suggest you buying some carrots and bananas. Since feeding the orangutans is discouraged, I think the only animals that eat bananas are the small bears and elephants. Hence, do get more carrots instead.
Blow what you have for the beginning route right before entering the “danger” zones Obviously, those tigers or lions are more interested in you rather than your carrots and bananas!
