Taman Safari Indonesia

Bogor is a district, part of West Java Province, which can be reached through short drive from Jakarta. Through an event created through CouchSurfing.org, Alif and I visited one of its main attraction: Taman Safari (http://www.tamansafari.com/) on October 29, 2011.

Bring some carrots (can be bought from the roadside on the way to the park) to feed those roaming free deers etc.

Can you see the owl inside the tree hole?

No motorbike ride and don’t open the car windows unless you’re strong enough to fight wild lion, bear, etc.

However, these tigers in baby zoo were cute enough to hug.
