Dolphin show at Safari World
Safari World is a sight seeing in Bangkok, Thailand that consists of two parks named Central Park and Citizen's Park, operated by Safari World Public Company Limited. The park was opened in 1988 with a total area of 480 acres (190 ha) for its open zoo and 180 acres (73 ha) for its bird park.
A major renovation to enhance effectiveness of land use began on April 17,1989 and its total area developed for the leisure park now consists of an open zoo and a marine park on 500 rai (approx.200acres) of land.
On February 1, 1994 Safari World increased its registered capital from 759 mil baht to 1,500 mil baht and changed its name to Safari World Public Company Limited. Later, it was accepted by the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) to become the first and only entertainment park to be listed on Thailand's stock market on February 16, 1995

Safari Park is about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) long. A drive through the park takes about 45 minute. The ultimate safari experience features hundreds of animals from all over the world. There are a lot of wild animals, including tigers and lions. There are daily tiger and lion feeding shows.
Thailand's greatest open zoo and leisure park that offers a great variety of entertainment for everyone. Whether it is an exciting safari drive, an intimate encounter with friendly dolphins or an exhilarating fast-paced action stunt spectacular, Safari World has it all. Safari Park: Features hundreds of animals from all over the world. Highlights include Wildlife Feeding Show. Marine Park: Jungle Cruise river ride, various shows daily, exhibits featuring white tiger, tropical rain forest aviary, crocodile garden, just to name a few.
The open air Safari Park is a very impressive eight kilometres long land where animals wander freely and where human are just tolerated. The first part is home to many species of herbivores: zebras, camels, antelopes, gazelles, rhinos and an amazing amount of large birds: ostriches, pelicans, cranes, and nightmarish marabou storks. As you drive through, you can stop your car as you please to admire this large display of animals but need to respect few simple rules: drive slowly, don't feed the animals, don't honk or make loud noises.
Bangkok Safari World
As Safari World wants to be more than just an animal park, you can also watch a western cowboy stunt show or even more incongruous, 'Spy War', a hollywood-like performance with explosions so loud they can be heard across the entire zoo. Some less visited part of the zoo shelter amazingly large fish, some of which can be more than two meter long.
However, don't miss the best attraction of the zoo: the giraffe feeding platform where you can feed banana to these friendly giants and possibly being like by their very long and slimy black tongues. Definitely an unusual photo to take back home.
Despite some of the animal not-so-friendly entertainments, Safari world is a big favourite of families and kids, Thais and tourists alike, a great way to spend the day away from the city and share with the kids the rare pleasure of getting really close to animals in the wild.
