    Safari in Indonesia

    the entrance to the Taman Safari Indonesia

    If you want to go on a safari but can't or don't have time to go to Africa, you can still do it right here in Jakarta. Located in the Puncak Highlands near Bogor about 75 km south east of Jakarta, Taman Safari Indonesia is home to numerous species of Safari animals. This is a drive-through Safari so you can ride your own car while getting up close and personal with lions, bears, giraffes, tigers, and the lot. Night safari is also available.

    The park also offers recreational grounds complete with lodgings, tennis cours, swimming pools, amusement park, and playground. Great place for family!

    tea leaves picker in traditional hat

    Located in the Puncak Highlands, a popular weekend destination for Jakartans, just south of Bogor, about an hour's drive from Jakarta. The tea plantation, a sight for sore eyes, is carpeted with thick green tea leaves and offer magnificent views of the surrounding hills. Fresh air also comes in large supply.

    The tea plantation offers a wide range of accomodation facilites from tranquil family bungalows to a hotel complete with meeting room faciilities. One of the most exciting activities is the guided tour of the plantation to see firsthand the way tea leaves are harvested.

    Summer  Palace by ukirsari

    Botanical Garden and Istana Bogor.
    Opening at the 17’s century, this garden will make our lungs fresh. Many tropic plantations from Indonesian forests you can find here. From pinewood, cedar, eucalyptus ‘till Pinus merkusii, plus the famous species ‘Bunga Bangkai’ (Rafflesia arnoldi).Meanwhile, Istana Bogor (Summer Palace) is situated inside the garden.

    BogorIn colonial times, Bogor...

    Bogor
    In colonial times, Bogor was an important Dutch hill station and the favorite retreat for Dutch governors-general. Almost 200 years ago, Raffles judged it ''a romantic little village'', though these days it''s really just an outer suburb of Jakarta. Bogor''s main attraction is its world-class botanical gardens (Kebun Raya) - a vast expanse of greenery in the middle of the city. Covering about 80 hectares (200 acres) - and originally used for cash-crops such as tobacco and tea - the gardens now contain over 15,000 species of trees and plants, including 400 palm species and, apparently, 3000 orchid varieties (though these are not open to the public). The grounds also play host to the huge Presidential Palace, which now houses Soekarno''s art collection (admission only by prior arrangement), and the motley exhibits of the Zoological Museum. Along with organised tour groups, the gardens are well serviced by train or bus from central Jakarta.
