If you want to spend a nice day with your family or by yourself (as I did), visit this strange zoo - something in between a safari zoo and a normal one - and appreciate the variety and healthiness of animals. You can either use your car for visiting the zoo or rent a golf cart (which can be parked... More

We spent almost a full day in this big open zoo. it is possible to enter with a car or rent an electric vehicle. The 2nd option worked very good for us. the animal show is much better that the usual shows and really explains about the lives of some of the anumaks.

Love all surrounding of the area. My kids love this place even the area is quite far from Pattaya town but still need to revisit again.

This was actually quite a good visit considering the usual animal parks in the area. Not so many cages but those that were in didn't look happy. Many animals were allowed to roam in spacious compounds. It is an all day visit. You can hire golf buggies to get you around. Entrance fee is reasonable.

Went on the night safari so you don't get to see that much just about 10 animals which isn't worth it only great thing was feeding tigers which is through a cage front on the enclosure. If you're gonna go then go during the day so you can see and do everything.

it was fantastic day with my family in this very big zoo. Overall good. You can drive your own car, rent kart or use tram service. Please alert animal show, there are 2 or 3 different animal show.

Personally I am not a huge fan of zoos but most of the animals here seem pretty happy. It was fun to be able to feed rhinos and some animals you do not typically get to feed. On the grand scale of zoos not so bad with regards to the enclosures. Ive been to a lot worse zoos in the... More

Fantastic day out for families with the opportunity to feed giraffe, rhinos,elephants and Lions. This is obviously not possible at most zoos around the world. This zoo is not third World and they make an effort to make the enclosures comfortable for the animals. The tram is great and the open plan works for the animals. Recommend a visit and... More
