Shenzhen Safari Park is the first zoo in China to uncage animals. With green mountains to the north as its barrier, it is like a bright pearl in the bustling metropolis. Covering an area of 640,000 square meters (158 acres), there are more than 300 kinds of wild animals, in total 10,000 from all over the earth. Many of them are rare animals, such as giant pandas, south China tigers, golden monkeys, Siberian tigers, flamingos, giraffes, zebras, and Asian elephants. Visitors can not only take a close look of the animals, appreciating their amusing performances, but also enjoy the thrilling Motorcycle and Car Stunt Show at night.

The park is divided into three zones according to the living habits of different animals. Tourists can closely see the uncaged animals through the glass corridors.


Wild Beasts Zone

In the adventurous Wild Beasts Zone, white tigers (Bengal tigers), north China tigers (Siberian tigers), south China tigers, bears, wolves, lions, and African leopard all have their own homes. You don't want to lose the chance to have a look at the hybrids of tigers and lions - tigons and ligers, for the park is the only wildlife zoo in the world to see these rare species.


Herbivorous Animals Zone

Pandas in Shenzhen Safari ParkGiraffes, flamingos, zebras, kangaroos, camels, hippos, swans, and other herbivores inhabit the Herbivorous Animals Zone. This area has the largest swan lake in China. Visitors can float over this lake to appreciate the graceful black and white swans. The national treasure of China, giant pandas, can also be seen in this zone. Two giant pandas are kept in the zoo. After adapting to the new environment, they are now living a happy life here and grow healthily.
