A small revelation I just learned during my recent trip is that Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc also became the first zoo in Vietnam to receive the certificate of the SEAZA Association in conservation and improvement of animal welfare. The zoo has been recognized by the international community for its full convergence of natural conditions, facilities, and habitat conditions... so that wild animals can be preserved and reproduced in order to breed and create flocks.

For the first and only time in Vietnam, you will be able to witness firsthand the wild life of precious animals such as: South African rhinoceros, Australian Kangaroo, Indian tiger, Kenyan zebra...
1.2. Modes of transportation
I booked a room at Vinpearl Phu Quoc, just over 3km from Vinpearl Safari. Therefore, it only takes 5 minutes by taxi to enter the zoo. If you move from Duong Dong town, just follow Cach Mang Thang Tam street to Duong Dong - Cua Can. Then turn left, straight ahead, you can reach Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc.

1.3. The ideal time to go to Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc
In general, the weather in Phu Quoc is relatively suitable for outdoor sightseeing. You can visit Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc at any time of the year.
I was reviewed by a friend who went to Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc before, so it was easy to choose the right time. I myself draw that, the best time to travel to Phu Quoc is in the dry season, from November to April. At this time, the dry weather is suitable for traveling and visiting animals.
Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc Zoo is very large, it takes a whole day for you to visit all the areas. Therefore, it is best to go early in the morning. When the morning is cool, join the outdoor activities. In the afternoon, you can take advantage of visiting Phu Quoc beach or combine visiting nearby places such as Rach Vem fishing village, Ganh Dau cape, having fun at VinWonders Phu Quoc...
2. What does Safari Phu Quoc have?
I personally think it would be a waste to travel to Phu Quoc without going to Vinpearl Safari - the paradise of animals. Here, you will be able to freely explore nature, check-in with rare animals.
2.1. Zoo Park
Vinpearl Safari is divided into 2 main areas, Zoo and Safari. In which, Zoo Zoo is home to more than 90 species of wild animals kept in captivity. However, their habitat is very spacious, placed in the middle of nature. This area has many rare animals that are raised to special standards. Believe me, you will be intrigued when witnessing the animals that seem to only be seen on television.
Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc Zoo is well planned with many different subdivisions. Each area has its own characteristics. If you have time, you should fully explore each area to learn about each animal species.
In particular, this place also has a performance stage and a zoo for children. There will be sheep, goats, squirrels… extremely cute. This area has always been especially loved by children. Only when you visit with your own eyes, you will see how excited the children are.
2.2. Wild Safari Area
The Safari area is a semi-wild zoo with nearly 50 different species of animals. The animals will be freed in an artificial, semi-wild environment with no cages or barriers to separate them. How often have you heard of “locking animals – releasing people”? But at Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc, the opposite is true. Visitors will be able to try the feeling of being "locked up" on the tram, the animals will be free around.
You will feel the animals getting closer and closer to the tram. Some children even blocked the front of the car. Besides the extreme excitement, I was also a little scared. However, all electric vehicles are fitted with sturdy, safe tempered glass. Therefore, you can rest assured.
There will be guides giving detailed explanations about each animal species. Visitors will be able to take pictures and watch the animals through the unique glass window. Spanning a large area with a preserved natural ecosystem, Vinpearl Safari Phu Quoc has developed an environment that meets the rigorous conditions of the Safari model.
This is a suitable place for young people and children to learn more knowledge about the animal world. Through these useful lessons, children will love nature and increase their creativity.

You may not know, Safari Phu Quoc is also the largest wildlife conservation site in Vietnam. This place also "married" many couples, producing many generations of lovely baby animals. If you have been to the garden, take the time to visit this interesting place.
