Khao Kheow Open Zoo meaning “Green Mountain” is located about a 45 minute drive outside of Pattaya to Siriracha. The zoo is situated on the foothills of the only remaining forest left in Chonburi Province. The area is a mixture of dry and evergreen forests that makes it the perfect place to be the home for over 8,000 species in captivity. The vast size of the zoo allows visitors to drive their own vehicle through the open safari tour and if you don’t want to drive, the zoo also offers a service bus to drive around the zoo to have the same experience. The open safari tour is called the African Savanna- it allows visitors see and touch non-dangerous animals such as giraffes, zebras, ostriches, to name a few, up close and even feed them. The zoo offers other excursions such as the Night Safari- where you can explore the zoo after dark and get to see the animals in their habits at night. You can also enjoy the Penquin Parade- where cute penquins swim around the pool, the Cat Complex- where stunning wildcats like Leopards, Lions, and Cheetahs climb trees, the Walk-Through Avairy- where hundreds of wild birds sing and show off their talent, and the Elk Deer Park- where you can see how this peaceful creature grazes. Lastly they have Animal Shows, children’s play area, and tons of other activities.
