The highlight of any trip, especially when you are travelling with kids is to show them something that might amaze them. The Ragunan Zoo is one such destination that everyone should take some time to explore.
When was the zoo established?
The Ragunan Zoo was set up as the very first zoo in Indonesia. It was opened for the public in 1966 and is now a stunning attraction. If you are staying at a Jakarta serviced apartment, such as the Citadines Rasuna Jakarta it is well worth taking the trip to visit this attraction.
Features of the zoo
The zoo currently spans across 140 hectares and is home to roughly 295 species. The zoo is also well maintained and green, making it a good retreat from the city.
On your travels to the zoo, you can also use this opportunity to visit the Jakarta Museum of Kites as well as the Ragunan Lake.
The kid’s park
If you are visiting the Zoo with kids, be sure to check out the Kid’s Park where children can interact with animals and enjoy the playground.
