Taman Safari | Bogor | Indonesia

As we have a week off from school for Idul Fitri, several of us hopped out of bed at 3 am and jumped on a plane to Jakarta. Out of our list of activities to do while we are here, we decided to rent a car and drive to Teman Safari. We got to drive through and see everything from elephants to alligators to hippos. At one point on our drive, I had a bit of deja vu as we approached a stone archway and mechanical gate (Jurrasic Park anyone?). A variety of signs warned us to stay inside our vehicle and keep the windows up, if we didn't want to get eaten by tigers and/or lions. We got up close and personal with some pretty ferocious creatures. At the end of our tour, after checking out some monkeys and giraffes, we had a photo op. I got to high-five a lion and cuddle an orangutan. Awesome? Check.
