Phone: (0274) 373 861

Gembira Loka is an exactly place to be visited with family. Not only we can try a variety of rides games and watch the behavior of various animals, we can also find a giant lizard, the Komodo Dragon.

Giant lizard walked slowly with dragged her body. Its forked tongue is sticking rhythmic while its tail is flagging to the right and left. While the legs are filled with sharp nails planted on the ground with great force. When the animal keeper threw the meat into the cage, she was immediately devoured and chewed savagely. A little boy seemed stunned at once fascinated and he just watched the scene that happened in front of him. Likewise YogYES, it is the first time to witness the dragons that are devouring the food.
