want to see the wild life, but under the wild cage. the animal set free and we see them on their cage. just like Jurassic Park. but this one named by TSI.
Taman Safari Indonesia (Indonesian Safari Park) located at Cibeureum, Cisarua Bogor, West Java, was constructed in 1980. This location was a non productive tea plantation of about 136.5's Ha. given by local Government Governor of West Java to the Oriental Circus to manage as Taman Safari Indonesia.
Taman Safari Indonesia, located in a Buffer Zone of Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park, stands at an elevation between 900-1,800 meters above sea level, with temperatures ranging between 16-27 degrees Celsius. Taman Safari was established as a National tourism Object by the Minister of Tourism, Post and Telecommunication, (Late) Mr.Soesilo Soedarman, and pronounced as Indonesian Centre for Reproduction of Endangered Wildlife (ICREW) and Ex-situ Conversation by the Minister of Forestry, Mr.Hasyrul Harahap at March, 16, 1990.
The location is between Jakarta and Bandung, around 80 km from Jakarta or 1.5-2 hours by car. While from Bandung, capital of West Java, about 78 km or 3 hours drive. If coming by public transport, from bus terminal, Jakarta (Kampung Rambutan) to Bandung, stop at Cisarua. From Cisarua continue by minibus or by public motor cycle, it takes only 15 minutes to arrive from there to Taman Safari Indonesia.
Taman Safari Indonesia was designed with two concepts in mind combining modern zoo tourism with an area of natural beauty, opened for the public in 1986, the animals collection in that year held about 250 animals from 100 different species. Ten years later, October 1995, the collection now has more than 2500 animals from 200 different species. More than 50% were born at Taman Safari, other wildlife have been entrusted by th Forestry Department (Directorate General PHPN/Forest Protection and Nature Conservation) the remainder entrusted from public or exchanged with wildlife from overseas zoos. Part of the wildlife collection at Taman Safari are protected species not only endemic in Indonesia, but also from the five continents. Some animals as endangered species, need special care to increase their population with captive breeding.
