Taman Safari Cisarua

I'm a sucker for animals, I simply love animals more than I love people! So when I voiced my thought of going on a trip to Taman Safari Cisarua, I was thrilled that my husband and my brother had the same thing in their minds. We decided to go there while my husband still in town, so we went last Saturday (exactly a week ago) plus my brother's girlfriend. We went early but the Saturday traffic was just so freaking bad that it took us almost 3 hours to get there, fortunately my husband is a very patient man! ((; If I was in the driver's seat, I'd made a turn in the middle of that bad traffic and headed to another fun place, I was thinking DuFan! Probably next time.

Apparently the animals in Taman Safari Cisarua really worth 3 hours of bad traffic. They are so cute, elegant, beautiful and adorable! I would love to go back there again and my husband already planned so too, because we were quite in hurry that day we didn't get to see the Wild Wild West Cowboy Show and ride an elephant or a camel! Bummer. 

Although the place is not as new, as nice, as big, as clean and as organized as Bali Safari and Marine Park - the best zoo in Indonesia (My husband and I went there in 2009 - hmm probably I'll post the pics sometime soon), it's still very interesting and a fun place to be - especially for family trip. What I love the most, is the cool weather!!! Unlike at Bali Safari and Marine Park where it's crucial to wear summer outfits because of the sizzling hot weather, you can wear jeans and long-sleeve top when visiting Taman Safari Cisarua in the middle of the day and not sweating! Such a lovely, lovely weather.

The foods at Rainforest Restaurant are also okay, not the best I've ever tasted but still okay. Not disappointing, in my opinion. 

We had great times there and pretty sad when we have go back to Jakarta. *le sigh* We finally left Taman Safari Cisarua at 3 PM to avoid another bad traffic. Oh well... see you very very soon, Taman Safari Cisarua!!! We'll be back!

Tips: When visiting Puncak area on weekends, you have to know this first. So you won't be stuck in bad traffic for hours.


That's where we heading to! Apparently if you have BNI card, you get 15% discount!


Eat red velvet cupcakes for breakfast in the car!

Stopped by to buy carrots for feeding the animals.
