Safari Lagoi

Safari Lagoi is home to an array of rescued and endangered animals including orangutan, sun bear, elephant, a 6 metre crocodile and more! There is also an aviary filled with vibrant and beautiful birds.

The animals and birds residing in Safari Lagoi are mainly rescued from illegal pet trade and exotic meat markets, confiscated from ‘owners’ by the relevant Indonesian Government Authorities or are sick/injured animals being nursed back to health. Most of these animals are judged to be incapable to be released back into the wild for a variety of reasons, hence the need for them to be cared for at this center.

Safari Lagoi aims to inform and educate the public on the need to protect and conserve the immense biodiversity and natural heritage of Indonesia. The Indonesia Ministry of Nature Conservation and Forestry provides professional advice and support for this center.

The area also encompasses an eco-farm, a 17 hectares haven of greenery where fruits are planted and fish are reared organically. The eco farm tour will give visitors, especially urban dwellers, the opportunity to embark on a 1.5 – 2 hour journey of discovery on Nature’s eco-cycle and the mechanics around the eco farm. 

Visitors can witness local produce in their most natural states. Children can relate better on what they learnt in school with the methods of sustainable farming used at the eco farm, be exposed to different types of vegetables and fruits, have hands-on planting or harvesting of seasonal crops, and learn how to make a new dish such as ‘rojak’ made from ingredients harvested off the farm!
