Enriching the Wildlife of Indonesia

The Ragunan Zoo in South Jakarta is a famous tourist attraction for vacations and trips. It is located in the southern region of the city, in the Ragunan Suburb. The place is suitable for international travelers with fully serviced hospitality and all amenities provided; a wonderful place to have fun and learn at the same time.

The Dutch flora and fauna lovers organization, the Vereneging Plantenen Dierentium organization at Batavia is credited with developing the place originally. The park was initially a ten hectare region on the Cikini Raya, Street two, in South Jakarta in the year 1864. The main park, the Plantenen Dierentium was subsequently shifted to its current position in 1964 in order to take care of the city’s development strategy. Until 1964, the Ragunan Zoo was situated at Cikini Street, after which it could not meet its fast expansion, and was reopened in 1966. Currently, the sanctuary accommodates more than 550 different species of wild life belonging to all parts of Indonesia. The Ragunan Zoo also provides shelter for a number of endangered wildlife species that include the Sumatran Tiger, Komodo dragon, and the dwarf buffalo and is a haven for the avian fauna.

Currently workers are in full flow to construct a new ten hectare enclosure. The director of the Ragunan Zoo will describe it as one of the most spacious and beautiful sanctuaries in the world. This spot is the perfect place for families to travel to on holiday. The place allows enjoyment of natural beauty and wildlife while imparting important bits of informative details. The working hours are from 8 in the morning to 6 in the evening, and the zoo is usually crowded with streaming visitors on weekends and holidays.

The Ragunan Zoo is located in the suburb and at the end of the day, you may wish to spend the night at a serviced residence. Jakarta has many aspects to its charm and staying a few nights in Jakarta serviced apartments can give you a perspective into the city’s serene and beautiful suburban lifestyle.
