Learn all about Safari World Bangkok for the ultimate zoo adventure!
Welcome to Safari World Bangkok, one of the largest and most well-known zoos in Thailand. One of the reasons it is so popular is because it is an open-air zoo. Animals can roam around freely out in the open area and not in confinement! This certainly takes the whole ‘going to the zoo’ experience up a notch and definitely adds a sense of adventure as if you were really out on a wildlife safari in Africa. Seeing wildlife creatures such as lions and tigers are, of course, on our to-do list but there’s so actually so much more to it than meets the eye.

Safari Park, one of the two main areas in Safari World Bangkok, is where the real safari adventure begins! Stretching up to 8 km, a drive-through Safari Park in your car or coach will provide you will the rare opportunity to get up close (but not too close!) with some of the most magnificent members of the Animal Kingdom.
The whole trip across this massive park will take around 45 minutes, guiding you past many of the herbivores first such as zebras, giraffes, rhinos as well as many species of birds! Make use of this great chance to truly admire these amazing creatures and observe them in their natural habitats instead of cages.
The second part of the drive will take you into the much-awaited predator’s den. This is where you’ll get to meet the “intimidating” lions, tigers, and bears going about their daily lives just taking a nap in the shade or maybe enjoying a bath.
Nonetheless, it’s nowhere safe to provoke them for any reason at all. So, just remember to keep to the safety guidelines, such as no honking and driving slowly, to enjoy a safe but thrilling safari adventure!

Safari World Bangkok is about 40 km north of Bangkok. It’ll take you roughly around 45 mins to one-way, depending on where you’re departing from. Like anywhere else you would go, you can hop into a taxi, take public transport or book a transfer service to get there.
Taxi / Grab
One way to get there is to take a taxi. The taxi fare will really depend on where you’re taking from and whether or not you can haggle down the prices. Nonetheless, it will cost you about 700 baht (20 USD) and double that for a round-trip. So, we recommend taking the taxi or grab to those who aren’t really on a budget and can afford to spend a few bucks more, or are traveling in big groups. Otherwise, we suggest you opt for other modes of transport.
If you’re a good navigator, public transport isn’t such a bad option either. Of course, it has its ups and downs but taking public transport will provide you with the opportunity to explore Bangkok up close and save you quite a few bucks on your trip!

If you have any doubts about taking a taxi or public transport (as do some people in foreign countries), why not book a transfer service to take you there and back safely, without worrying about losing your way or getting overcharged? We offer all-inclusive packages which include a Safari World Bangkok ticket, a lunch buffet, and a round-trip transfer service at a bargain! You can even choose from two options: shared transfer service or private transfer service. Opt for a hassle-free trip to Safari World Bangkok and have all the fun you want!
