Feeding baby lions, playing with leopards, learning macaws how to fly and hand feeding giraffes and monkeys… These are some of the awesome things you can expect to do when volunteering at the Safari Park Open Zoo. I volunteered at the park for 1 week and had an amazing time! The park is located near the city of Kanchanaburi, some 2.5 hours from Bangkok, and can provide you with this unforgettable volunteer experience as well!

The Bridge on the River Kwai is quite well known among the Dutch. It is part of the so called ‘railway of death’, running from Thailand to Burma (Myanmar).

It’s only around 75km from Bangkok and is therefore definitely worth a day trip when you’re in Bangkok!
