Our Story


Nestled in the lush greenery of Indonesia, there existed a haven where the wild roamed freely, and humans could venture into their world. This sanctuary, known as Taman Safari Indonesia, was not merely a zoo but a visionary concept blending conservation, education, and entertainment.

The story of Taman Safari Indonesia begins in the early 1980s when a group of passionate conservationists, led by Toto Suharto, envisioned a place where people could experience wildlife up close while promoting awareness about the importance of preserving natural habitats. With this dream in mind, they embarked on a journey to create a unique wildlife park that would become a beacon of conservation in Indonesia.

In 1986, their vision came to life with the opening of Taman Safari Indonesia in Cisarua, West Java. This sprawling park stretched across acres of pristine land, carefully designed to mimic the natural habitats of various species. Visitors embarked on safari-style journeys through the park, encountering a diverse array of wildlife, including majestic lions, graceful giraffes, playful elephants, and exotic birds.

Taman Safari Indonesia was more than just a tourist attraction. It played a vital role in wildlife conservation efforts, breeding endangered species and conducting research to better understand and protect Indonesia’s rich biodiversity. Through educational programs and outreach initiatives, the park inspired thousands of visitors to become stewards of the environment, instilling a sense of responsibility for the planet’s fragile ecosystems.

Over the years, Taman Safari Indonesia expanded its reach, establishing additional parks in Prigen, East Java, and Bali. Each park retained the same commitment to conservation and education while showcasing the unique flora and fauna of its region. From the lush rainforests of Java to the pristine beaches of Bali, these parks provided immersive experiences that left a lasting impact on visitors all ages.
