Khao Kho Open Zoo, situated in Phetchabun, is a research station that focuses on the breeding of wildlife – one of the initiatives made by King Rama IX the Great.
This project is overseen by the Wildlife Conservation Division, which shelters various species of wildlife; most can be rarely seen nowadays.
Not only the rarest kinds, but also general kinds of wild animals also roam around the Zoo for visitors to admire their adorable posture and behaviour.
If you are a family with children who are very eager to learn about the world’s surroundings, this tourist destination would suit the needs and expectations of your little ones.
Apparently, for those who have a strong interest in learning about the animals’ ecology, they can adore the magnificent creation of nature at the Khao Kho Open Zoo, along with the knowledge that would fulfil their thirst for firsthand information.
