Get the feel of a safari park just a short ride away from the big city. Shanghai Wild Animal Park is an expansive haven of wildlife hidden away in the city’s Pudong area, a home to more than 200 species from all over the world. It’s a great spot for a weekend adventure or to keep the whole family entertained.
The park is divided into two areas: the first where you can walk between enclosures and the second is a drive-in area where you can board a bus and ride into the safari section for close contact with the animals. Enter the walking area and find white lions, crocodiles, kangaroos, ostriches, and most importantly the greatest treasures of the park, the pandas.
The drive-in area showcases the amazing world of wild animals right up close. Watch as tigers, lions, giraffes, elephants, and bears wander and play as you ride past. This is a special experience that is not only fun but safe. There are also animal shows and dog racing.
Aside from the animals, you’ll also find a variety of facilities for children to play and a Ferris wheel that gives you a panorama over the park, and plenty of choices for snacks and meals to keep your energy up all day.
