History
-----------------------------------------------------
It is an open Zoo Safari Park. Formerly, this area was a mine (pit) belonging to the chairman, Mr. Pun-yah  Prasopsookchokemanee. After terminating his business, he wanted to make something social, with love and kindness to animals. So, he needed to establish Safari Park Open Zoo as a green area for learning and environmental education centre and propagate.

The objectives are to provide opportunities for students to study about animals, including to create more job opportunities and better standards of living for the local people.

Now, Safari Park Open Zoo has been open for 14 years and we have an educational project in many areas. Now Safari Park Open Zoo will fill a learning centre  of Kanchanaburi metropolitan area 4.

At the Zoo, they will make it an environmental education centre leading to environmentally sustainable conservation. Tourists will get really close to a wide variety  of animals. Students and tourists can clasp animals affectionately around the neck. The up-close-and- personal encounters with the giraffes make for great photos. We are confident that you have never touched like this before and you will enjoy and feel the atmosphere of excitement in the shows.
