Day trip from Jakarta to Bogor botanical gardens and Taman Safari Park

December 2012 

Another idea to spend a free day around Jakarta is a day tour to Bogor, the city known for hosting one of the largest botanical gardens in the world. Within a relatively short distance, you can find also Taman Safari Park, a large safari park that is home to many animals coming from different places of the world.
