Bukit Gambang Resort City is a nice place for a weekend retreat and it is not too far from Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya. Bukit Gambang Resort City is our destination after our breakfast at Yik Kee Restaurant. There are water park and safari park here, suitable for family outing as well as activities such as paintball, jungle trekking, ATV, horse riding, flying fox and sky trail.
There are also team activities at Bukit Gambang Resort City such as Ice-breaker Energizer, Management Field Games and Obstacles Challenges suitable for company trip. For this time, we were here for the Safari Park because my brother-in-law has free tickets. We booked a Family Suite at Caribbean Bay Resort and spent a night there.
Arrived at Bukit Gambang Resort City
We arrived at Bukit Gambang Resort City’s Caribbean Bay Resort after breakfast to check-in. This photo of Bukit Gambang Resort City was taken when we were on our way to our Family Suite at one of the blocks. There are many blocks here connected by bridge such as the one in this photo.
A view of the CaribbeanBay Resort‘s swimming pool at Bukit Gambang Resort City. We didn’t get to swim in the pool because there were not enough time. We quickly drop our bags and prepare to go to the Bukit Gambang Safari Park.
Bukit Gambang Resort City’s Family Suite of Caribbean Bay Resort
Before sharing the photos of Bukit Gambang Safari Park, let me share the room of the Family Suite at Caribbean Bay Resort. This suite comes with TV but only free channels are available. Wooden chairs are comfortable to sit while chit-chatting with family or friends after a day at the Water Park or Safari Park of Bukit Gambang.
Water boiler and mini fridge are available in the Family Suite. There is no stove for cooking though. Bukit Gambang Resort City has contacted me that actually no cooking is allowed here. So if you are hungry, bring some extra snacks or you also can get some food from the convenient shop downstairs.
The table, mirror and door-less cupboard in one of the room in the family suite.
Clean bed sheet and pillows in the Family Suite at CaribbeanBay Resort of Bukit Gambang. The mattress is comfortable for a good night sleep .
Hot shower is available too but our room does not have body shampoo. So bring your own soap or shampoo just in case. Bukit Gambang Resort City has also contacted me that soap and shampoo will be available for all customers.
Clean toilet and water sink in the suite. Toilet paper and fresh towels are provided as well.
Are you ready to visit the Safari Park? Laupoh is ready at the lobby! Free transportation to the safari park is provided in you are staying in the resort.
Bukit Gambang Safari Park, the largest Zoo Safari Park in Malaysia
Is this a lorry or is this a tram? Anyway, it is in leopard skin! Hop in and it will bring you to the Bukit Gambang Water Park and Bukit Gambang Safari Park.
On our way to Bukit Gambang Safari Park. The ride took only around 5 minutes.
The ticket counter for the Bukit Gambang Safari Park. There are not many people queuing to buy the ticket. I guess most of them bought their ticket online.
The entrance to the Bukit Gambang Safari Park is this big wooden traditional house.
Please note the time for the shows and activities in the safari park so that you won’t miss them. We only managed to watch the African Yabara Fire Show and the Tarzan Adventure. These two shows at Bukit Gambang Safari Park are highly recommended. The entrance ticket price covers all the shows here.
From the Safari Park ,we can see the Bukit Gambang Water Park. We did not visit the water park due to time constraint.
There is this restaurant in the Safari Park, where you can eat and watch the white lions watching you eating. I think the restaurant is big enough to organize a wedding dinner.
There are many types of animals and insects at Bukit Gambang Safari Park
I was trying to shoot the photo of this white lion but it keeps hiding far up. Maybe it is a shy lion at Bukit Gambang.
One of the walking area to reach the other parts of the Bukit Gambang Safari Park. I love the natural greeneries of the safari park.
We spotted this tiny goat with big horns in the Bukit Gambang Safari Park.
One of the unique animal in Bukit Gambang Safari Park is this world’s smallest kangaroo. Can you see how small is the kangaroo?
Next, we walked pass the arachnids, insects and bugs area. This is a kind of tarantula spider that is not moving. I’m not sure if it is tired or just taking a nap.
Beside the spiders, there are also these big and fat scorpions. I’m pretty sure I do not want to meet those guys outside of the glass box.
Overview of the Gambang Safari Park from the top level. The area is pretty big and there are just not enough animals here to make it more lively.
The birds here are flying around freely so the roof is covered to prevent them from flying away.
This is the fish aquariums area. The tanks are quite big but the fishes are small. Hope to see more fishes in the future.
Snakes, spiders, scorpions and fishes are some of the attractions at this safari park.
Can you spot the snake in disguise? I think she is trying to look like a wire.
For each of the animals here, they are described in a poster like this one. This Bukit Gambang Safari Park is a food place for educating yourself or children about the nature.
I think the yellow snake spotted me. I hope it is not hungry.
There is this monster lizard but I forgot to check what is his real name. Reminded me of Jurassic Park though. Look at those long fingernails.
This chameleon is shy and don’t want to be photographed. In this room at the Safari Park, the harmless reptiles are actually not in any cage or box. So, watch you steps when you are inside here.
In the reptile room, there is this big iguana. Do you dare to touch him?
This is the stage where everyone is watching the bird show. I’m not really interested with bird show, so lets move on.
I saw this big hairy black bear. I waited for him to move around for a nice photo, but I only managed to get his nose.
There are many types of birds at Bukit Gambang Safari Park
There are many kinds of bird here such as those colorful birds playing with water. Not sure if the birds are drinking water or taking bath.
I think these two red birds are couple.
Another view of the Safari Park area. Looks like a nice spot for horror movie and photography.
One of the closed room for you to get close with the birds.
I like this spiky hair bird. Anyone know what is this bird’s name? You can also buy some bird snacks here to feed the birds.
This building in Bukit Gambang Safari Park is built this way for the rusty feel when the building starts to blend in with the nature over the time.
Have you ride on a camel before? This is your chance to ride a cute camel around the park for RM 10.
Next, we took this tram again to ride into the wild.
Tired looking leopard, perhaps it is the weather, perhaps it is just taking nap.
Wild deer in the Safari Park of Bukit Gambang Resort City. They just sitting around and not really interested with us.
A few cows taking bath in the mud water on this hot day. Maybe they are shy as none of them is facing us.
This is the first time I saw an llama. I think this llama is new here, he keep chasing after our tram.
Dinner at Bukit Gambang Resort City
After a day at the Safari Park, we went back to Caribbean Bay Resort. The menu at Caribbean Bay Resort does not looks so appetizing so we walked to Arabian Coffee House at Arabian Bay Resort for dinner.
I ordered this mee mamak at Arabian Coffee House for dinner. The taste is quite good.
Laupoh ordered this curry noodle for her dinner at Bukit Gambang Resort City
After dinner, we went back the the Safari Park for the night activities and nocturnal animals. They have this souvenir shop here for you to buy something back as sweet memories from Bukit Gambang Resort City.
The African Yabara Fire Show. There are fire eating and fire throwing into the sky. Their fire skills are quite impressive.
The stage for the Tarzan Adventure. You can watch a bit of the show here on my You Tube. It is quite an interesting live show because they use fireworks for the rifle and bombs. Do not watch the video below if you do not like spoilers.
Tarzan Adventure show at Bukit Gambang Safari Park. I totally recommend everyone to stay for this amazing show. I enjoyed every minutes of the show.
After the show, we went to this park of nocturnal animals such as this cute tapir. Other animals are too dark for any photo.
There is this mini theme park here at Caribbean Bay Resort which you can spend the rest of the night.
Not sure what is name of this ride. A mini one compared to the one at Genting Theme Park. Only for kids.
Breakfast at Caribbean Coffee House of Bukit Gambang Resort City
In the next morning, we had our breakfast at the Bukit Gambang Resort City’s Caribbean Coffee House. Like other hotel breakfast, you can make your own sandwich or roti bakar.
Waffles are also available here, cut into small pieces so that you can eat more variety of breakfast.
How about some local pancake called lempeng? I tried it and it tastes nice with the curry chicken.
The noodle section at Bukit Gambang’s Caribbean Bay Resort breakfast buffet. You can make your own hot and steamy noodle soup here with fresh vegetables and fish balls.
My simple breakfast for our last day at Bukit Gambang Resort City, which is a lempeng with curry, hot dog and croissant.
For a quick getaway from the city, do try to visit Bukit Gambang Resort City. This amazing place only takes around 2 to 3 hours drive from Petaling Jaya or Kuala Lumpur. If you prefer something closer to nature and more relaxing, check out my blog posts on Tanah Aina Farrah Soraya and The Dusun.
