Dulahazra Safari park

Dulhazara safari park is located at Dulhazara union of Cox'sbazar. Its around 1.5 to 2 hours road journey from cox'sbazar. Its a safari park comprises with natural plants and few number of animals(inside zoo). Only the Elephant and the Hippopotamus is are at open places.  

Dulahazra Safari Park was developed on an undulating landscape of around 2,224 acres (9.00 km2) of area at Chakaria Upazila in Cox's Bazar District, Bangladesh, some 107 km away from the port city, with an objective to create facilities for eco-tourism, research work and entertainment aside from conserving wild animals in a natural environment.

Dulahazra Park is home to at least 4,000 animals of 165 species. After the new government took over in January 2007, joint forces rescued many of these new residents of the park during their drives at houses and establishments owned by graft suspects. Many individuals also ‘donated’ some of the animals to the park during this period. The seized and donated animals recently sent to the park include 90 spotted deer (chital), 42 barking deer (maya, a species of muntjac deer), three sambar deer, one freshwater crocodile, one saltwater crocodile, nine black bear, four pythons, 17 peacocks, 19 Turkish pheasants and two emus.

Other source of animale includes the Dhaka Zoo. While the animal population in Dhaka zoo has increased over the years due to their breeding, the Dhaka zoo donates a number of lions and tigers to the Dulhazra Safari Park.

There are several attractions inside the park. After entering the park, you'll find the orchid collections at right, and a museum at the left side. Both are equally attractive. 

Have a tower, around 10th floored. If you can get at the top of the tower, you'll enjoy the vast ocean of green plants. Its a lovely view. After climbing several hundreds of stairs, you'll find the scene more bewitching.

There are two options for you to enjoy the park, one is the transport system of the park itself, and other one is by feet. I have used the first one, but I think walking will be the best enjoyment for the park. Using transport, you have a limited time for each spot, but using walking, no limitation. Also you can take your own vehicles with proper fees, and that will be fine either.
