Feeding Show at Safari Park

To get around Safari Park of Safari World Bangkok, you need to take the bus that will comfortably tour you to the wilderness.

1. Zebra

Zebras

Did you know that each zebra features a specific black and white stripe pattern? Because of their stripes, they can blend with the surroundings and get away from their attackers―running on a zigzag motion. And just like most horses and donkeys, zebras have a great sense of sight, allowing them to easily detect predators.

2. Ostrich

Ostriches
Ostriches

Considered as the largest bird in the world, ostrich also holds the reputation of laying the world’s biggest egg. Despite their massive size, they are fast runners and can run over 70 km per hour with their elongated legs. And a fun fact that deserves a mention―ostriches have multiple stomachs, not one, not two, but three!

3. Giraffe

Giraffes
Giraffes

Giraffes are very unique and captivating in so many ways. Unlike other animals, they only sleep around 5 to 30 minutes and just drink water once every few days. Accordingly, their entire life is spent more on standing, walking around, swinging necks, running, and eating leaves.

4. Camel

Camels
Camels

Camels are some of the oldest animals on Earth as their origin can be traced over 4,000 years ago. They have a unique body structure and features like multiple eyelids and eyelashes, thick skin, and furry ears.

5. Marabou Stork

Marabou Storks

Marabou storks are not usual birds―these are larger bird species that can grow up to 5 ft.! With no feathers on their head down to their neck, they can easily eat everything they want. Surprisingly, marabou storks feed on both live and dead animals, and even poops and garbage.

6. Pelican

Pelican
Pelican

In comparison to the previously mentioned marabou storks, the pelicans are more decent as they often eat fresh catches. Through their sword-shaped bill, they can easily catch their prey, which includes fishes, insects, mammals, and even birds. Diving into the waters from at least a 40 ft. drop, pelicans are surely one of the strongest hunting birds.

7. White Rhinoceros

White Rhinoceros
White Rhinoceros

The largest of all five rhino species is the white rhinoceros, which is also the second-largest animal on earth. Don’t get intimidated by their bulging body because white rhinoceros don’t eat meat but rather feast on grass. Nevertheless, you can’t underestimate their strength and speed as they can run up to 40 km/hr!

8. Watusi

Watusi
Watusi

Watusis are literal show-stoppers because of their long, sharp horns that they use for protection from predators. And because of their rather unique feature, these cow-like build species are dubbed as the cattle of kings. Even in some local tribes in Africa, watusi are considered to be sacred animals.

9. Gaur

Gaur
Gaur

It’s easy to spot gaurs because of their dark skin and upward curved horns that grow up to 45 inches. Gaurs are quite huge creatures that allow them to successfully protect themselves from their main predators like crocodiles and tigers. Despite their massive body structure, gaurs’ diet consists of leaves, grass, fruits, and other plants.

10. Impala

Impala
Impala

Impalas are speedy, slender animals that can easily run as fast 60 km/hr. Even with their toned structure, unfortunately, they are often the target among many predators. That’s why many impalas gather in groups so that they can confuse attackers and easily run in a zigzag pattern.

11. Blackbuck

Blackbucks
Blackbucks

Without a doubt, the most striking features of a blackbuck’s body are their elongated, spiral horns and spotted skin colour. Blackbucks, or sometimes called as the Indian antelopes, are not just grass-eaters but also fast-runners and great jumpers. On hot days, you can spot them running around the grassland or resting under trees.

12. Wildebeest

Wildebeests

In case you see any cattle-like creature with horns and beards, chances are, you have spotted a wildebeest! As part of the antelope family, wildebeests are plant-eating species that consume leaves and grass. Just like horses and other antelopes, they are amazing runners that can sustain a speed of 80 km/hr.

13. Oryx

Oryxes

Oryx are lovers of dry, warmer season; hence, they are most visible on deserts and grasslands. Their body colour is a combination of light brown, grey, white, and black, depending on the oryx species. But in unison, all oryx, whether male or female, have very long and razor-sharp horns that keep predators away.

14. Eld’s Deer and Fallow Deer

Elds Deer and Fallow Deer

Often than not, eld’s deer and fallow deer accompany each other―eating grass together and lazing around together. Still, they are easy to differentiate as fallow deers have more prominent spots and wider horns.

If you’re a fan of the hit movie ‘Lion King’, then you gotta see these powerful creatures at Safari Park. Lions are dubbed as the kings of the jungle for a reason―they are a mix of everything! They are ultimate warriors, powerful leaders, caring mothers, playful beasts, and oftentimes lazy beings.

16. Tiger

Tigers
Tigers

These oversized cats are the largest of their species, weighing up to 140 kgs. Distinctively, tigers are the only cats with stripes all over their body, though each of them has different stripe patterns.

17. Brown Bear

Brown Bear
Brown Bear

Brown bears almost eat everything, from fish to deers to honey and more! These massive creatures easily catch their food using their sharp paws or right from their mouth. Brown bears are not all brown; there are some with cream colour and some with deep brown fur.

18. Black Bear

Black Bears
Black Bears

Black bears, in comparison, are more undersized bear species, making them the smallest among all other bears. Still, they are quite huge compared to humans so don’t take them too lightly, especially that they also eat meat. But frequently, black bears just eat plants, insects, honey, fruits, and fishes.

5 Tips for Visiting Safari World Bangkok


 

1. Visit the Safari World in the Morning and on a Weekend

Orangutan at Safari World

Come across this adorable orangutan, which is much more energetic in the morning compared in the evening. By starting your trip to the zoo in the morning, you can meet the animals in their most active state.

And, since you need a full day to see all attractions and popular shows, it’s practical to start in the morning.

For a more memorable park adventure, visit Safari World Bangkok during weekends. During these days, you have more time to explore the two parts of the park―Safari Park and Marine Park. It’s because weekends operate on longer hours.

And, the marine park provides two time slots for most shows on Saturdays and Sunday. So, if you miss the first one, you still have the chance to see the second time slot shows.

2. Skip the Jungle Cruise at Marine Park

The Jungle Cruise is one of the attractions at Marine Park. It allows you to take a boat through the river to see crocodiles, gorillas, snakes and elephants.

But all these are not real animals. That’s mean through the boat ride you only able to see some animal statues and sculptures. These all animal statues and sculptures are not attractive. Thus, it’s not worth to spend your time at this attraction.

3. Prepare Your Mosquito Repellent Ahead

Mosquito Repellent

Take precaution by applying mosquito repellent before you visit Safari World Bangkok. It’s better safe than sorry―especially you’ll be outside most of the time, making you more prone to mosquito bites.

4. Take Your Lunch Before 12:00 PM

Safari World Aviary Restaurant

Enjoy every bite as you dine in Safari World Aviary Restaurant. This buffet restaurant serves a wide range of international and local cuisines.

The Safari World Aviary Restaurant and all other restaurants around the park are quite jam-packed during lunch. So, if you want to skip the long queues and avoid the crowd, you can take your lunch earlier.

Dining earlier also saves time so you can spend more time to explore the zoo.

5. No Outside Foods and Drinks are allowed to be taken into the Park

For safety purposes, you will be checked upon entry at the gate. Even if you cannot bring outside foods and drinks, there’s no need to worry! There are plenty of food stalls inside the park, with different snacks and beverages to choose from.

Also, there are water stations inside the restaurants. So, you can just bring your own, reusable water bottle and refill it anytime.

Please take note that mineral water bottle (recycle bottle) is not allowed to bring into the park. They only allow for reusable water bottle.

How to Get to Safari World Bangkok


 

Once you’ve decided to visit Safari World Bangkok, you’re given 3 transportation options, with downtown Bangkok as the starting point. These 3 ways are: By BTS skytrain and public bus, direct shuttle bus and taxi. Let’s check out now.

1. By BTS Skytrain and Public Bus


Bangkok BTS Train
Bangkok BTS Skytrain
Why you should take the BTS Skytrain and Public Bus?
Cheapest but slowest and required transfers several times

If you’re on a tight budget, you may want to consider this cheap transportation option. However, do take note that you’ll have to allocate at least 2 hours to reach Safari World Bangkok.

There’s no direct BTS or MRT train going to Safari World Bangkok, so you need to take the train first. Right after, hop aboard the public bus.

Hence, this may be the cheapest yet also the slowest manner to go to the park.

Refer to the step-by-step guide below to go to Safari World Bangkok via BTS train, then public bus:

A Visual Guide on Getting to Safari World from Bangkok
A Visual Guide on Getting to Safari World Bangkok
  1. Take the Sukhumvit Line to Mo Chit BTS Station.
  2. From Mo Chit BTS Station, go out the Exit 1 or 3.
  3. Hop on the Bus No. 26 going to Fashion Island Shopping Mall.
  4. Get off at Fashion Island Shopping Mall.
  5. Take Bus No. 197 to Safari World Bus Stop.
  6. From the Safari World Bus Stop, walk around 10 minutes to Safari Word Bangkok.

Time required to Safari World Bangkok = Around 2 hours

2. By Shuttle Bus


Shuttle Bus to Safari World Bangkok
Shuttle Bus to Safari World Bangkok
Why you should take the direct shuttle bus?
Easiest, fast and save time plus affordable price

The best option is the direct shuttle bus from downtown Bangkok to Safari World. This air-con ride is not just the most convenient but also the safest mode of transportation. It’s because this shuttle bus service already includes Safari World entry ticket.

Here are 6 reasons why you should take the shuttle bus to Safari World Bangkok:

  1. Super convenient. If you want less travel time and less stress, then the shuttle bus is the answer.
  2. Direct transportation. Compared to the first option, there’s no need to walk from the designated bus stop to the Safari World entrance.
  3. Skip the crowded public bus. Often than not, the public bus can get too crowded, especially during peak hours.
  4. Avoid taxi scam. Sadly, there are taxi drivers who do not use their meter. Instead, they would give you fixed and higher rate.
  5. Skip the ticketing counter queue at Safari World. Since the shuttle bus already includes entrance ticket for Safari World, no need to line up at the ticketing counter.
  6. Secured, comfortable, and cheap. Above all, the shuttle bus is cheaper than taking a taxi and even more secure than taking the public bus. So, you just hop aboard, relax, and prepare yourself for a fun-filled day at Safari World.

Assembly Location:
Conveniently, the assembly location for the shuttle bus is just located outside of Victory Monument BTS Station, Exit 2.

Here’s my feedback on the shuttle bus I joined during my trip to Safari World Bangkok


This shuttle bus service offer multiple packages. During my visit to Safari World Bangkok, I availed of the package that already includes a lunch buffet.

The foods served at the lunch buffet were quite plain. So, if you’re not a fan of buffets, you can just choose Single Day Pass + Join In Transfers package. This package consists of the shuttle bus transfer as well as the Safari Park and Marine Park tickets.

With or without the lunch buffet, these packages are actually much cheaper compared to buying your tickets on-site. The tickets purchased at Safari World ticketing counter is 1,500 Thai Baht, with no inclusion of shuttle bus services.

This shuttle bus service also come with the “drive through Safari Park”. The “drive through Safari Park” gives you a scenic yet comfy view of the animals at the Safari Park.

Not only that, this bus lets you watch the feeding show for lions and tigers at a closer distance. So, you don’t need to spend 45 Thai Baht to ride a Coach Bus at Safari World for you to experience the “drive through Safari Park”. This is because the shuttle bus already covered this service.

Know more about the prices, assembly location, and actual schedule of the shuttle bus service through the link below.

3. By Taxi


Taxi from Bangkok to Safari World
Bangkok Taxi
Why you should take the taxi?
Fastest but expensive

The last option is by taking a taxi to Safari World Bangkok. This is the comfortable and fastest way of getting there. Unfortunately, this is also the priciest, considering the traffic jam in Bangkok.

So, if you’re planning to take a cab, better check with the driver first if their meter is working. If not or if they refuse to use the taxi meter, find another one―it’s better safe than sorry.

This top-rated attraction has 2 parks that are definitely worth visiting. These are the Safari and Marine Parks, each of which featuring different sets of animals and shows.

Our personal experience of the Safari World Bangkok was memorable. My wife and I had fun with the variety of animals in the parks. We enjoyed the close encounters with some adorable creatures, marine species, and even wild animals.

Aside from that, we loved the amazing shows with the dolphins, elephants, sea lions. The orangutan and cowboys shows, on the other hand, are also very funny!

All these shows were amazing, so make sure to watch these when you visit Safari World! And of course, you can’t miss the tiger and lion feeding shows, together with the giraffe feeding that has a very interesting presentation.

We visited the zoo on a weekend because of more time slots for the shows and longer operating hours. And also, we almost spent the entire day exploring the place.

Without a doubt, we totally enjoyed our visit to Safari World Bangkok. So, if you’re in Bangkok, don’t forget to visit Safari World and get your tickets online to enjoy 43% discount. And, it’s highly recommended to take the direct shuttle bus to Safari Wold for a comfortable and safer trip.

Availing of the shuttle bus with entry ticket is not just convenient but also cheaper compared to buying ticket on-site.
