Afamosa Resort


A’Famosa Resort, Animal safari, cowboy town & waterpark

Hold tight, as you sit in the caged truck. The Safari Park adventure at A ‘Famosa is about to begin. This is the only safari park in Malaysia, where you can see wild animals like tigers, lions and sunbears close-up in the open as the truck stops right next to them. But before you get to meet the lions, you have to pass through the rough and bumpy Jungle Area and cross Crocodile River. Yes, there are really crocodiles in the water! The tigers, lions and sunbears roam in their own areas, and are prevented from escaping by electrified fencing.


Also in the Safari Park is the Herbivore Area, where Barbary sheep, deer, camels, zebras and ostriches roam freely in the open while the giraffes munch happily on fresh leaves from the trees. Again, the truck stops close to these animals for you to get a good look.
