        This zoo reminds us of the similar parks in Kenya, Africa. Although iris not as large as the one in Kenya, we can still enjoy the park which is about one hundred hectares. In conventional zoos, the animals are in cages, but in the Safari park visitors are in 'cages' ; they are not allowed to get off the cars or buses. The animals wander freely. Visitors who dont have cars can use the touring buses available at the park.

The other blocks are like in conventional zoos; the animals are in cages. The animals that are in cages are like white tigers - a rare species from India - several kinds of monkeys, birds, and crocodiles. There are also som" tame animals like monkeys, bears, and baby tigers. Visitors can take picture together with them.
        This park is provided with a playground. In this area visitors can enjoy a circus show, and souvenirs shops. They can also enjoy a small but beautifull waterfall.

         The sun had just risen when twelve men wearing traditional clothes were on the back of their horses with a spear and a rope in their hands. They waited quietly at about 25 meters from the appointed spot in Savana Watumohai, North Sulawesi. Ten minutes later a herd of deer led by a stag with its beautiful antlers came out from the bushes. The stag looked up the sky, made a sound as if he felt they were in danger. He was about to warn his "followers" when in a sudden the men attacked them !" The battle could not be avoided.
         "Come on ! Hurry ! Seize them ! Seize them !" noisy human voice burst out from a big and high, stage in a distance through and electrical stereo system. The "battle" ended, the men won.
         The deer were tied with a rope and brought to the stage, Some juries inspected the animals and choose he biggest, strongest deer. A spear with a gold handle was given to the "contestant" who could seize the biggest and strongest deer uninjured. Then the deer were
sent back to the savana freely after some medical treatment was given to some of them And the show ended.
         It was not a real "battle". It was a real show in a recreation program in Watumo hai, the biggest National Park and Wildlife among the 17 parks in Indonesia. Besides for the recreation, the purpose is to love animals and to save them from extinction. This awareness is now much needed to keep the ecosystem in nature balanced.
