Domestic and foreign tourists do not need to hesitate to make a visit to the Bali Safari Park. It happens because the animal conservation organization in Bali located on Jalan Prof. Dr. Ida Bagus Mantra, Serongga Village, Gianyar, has received a Certificate of Cleanliness, Health, Safety, Environmental Sustainability (CHSE) from the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (MTCE). By that way, the safety and comfort of traveling in the tourist objects with various types of animals already have definite standards.
Marketing Manager of Bali Safari Park, Inneke Ficianirum, stated that during the Covid-19 pandemic health protocols are very important, especially in public places, such as recreation areas and hotels. To that end, to guarantee the implementation of the health protocol required by the government, there is a CHSE certificate that has been just received by Bali Safari Park and Mara River Safari Lodge,” said Inneke on Saturday (Feb 20).
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic hitting Indonesia, Bali Safari Park and Mara River Safari Lodge have implemented health protocols for guests and employees. Every guest and employee must be checked for body temperature. If surpassing 37.5 degrees Celsius, they are not allowed to be inside the Bali Safari Park area and so are with the rules for using mask and keeping distance. Hand washing facilities and hand sanitizer are also provided for guests.
All forms of application of the health protocol then received recognition from the government, in this case the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of the RI in the form of a CHSE certificate. “This CHSE certificate is proof that we are truly focused and consistent in implementing the Covid-19 health protocol for the safety and convenience of guests. In the future, for sure we will strictly guard the implementation of health protocols having been running quite well,” said Inneke.
The CHSE certificate itself was awarded to Bali Safari Park and Mara River Safari Lodge on the basis of competency test assessments conducted on November 27, 2020. Based on the assessment, Bali Safari Park, Mara River Safari Lodge, Uma Resto and Tsavo Restaurant have met every indicator of the CHSE assessment points. “The assessment falls into the ‘Satisfactory’ category,” she said happily.
Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Taman Safari Indonesia Group, Daniel Hartono, said that it is the second certification achieved by Bali Safari Park after several times obtaining a Certificate of Protocol for a New Era of Life in Tourism Business from the Gianyar Tourism Office. Both certifications do not necessarily reduce the implementation of health protocols in the Bali Safari Park and Mara River Safari Lodge environments. “On the contrary, the management will further tighten this health protocol in order to take part in breaking the chain of spreading the Covid-19 virus,” he affirmed.
It is fully committed to providing a healthy, safe and enjoyable holiday experience for every family member in all Taman Safari Indonesia Group units. “The way that we are taking in this pandemic condition is by implementing strict health protocols. This is proven by the CHSE certificates achieved by Bali Safari Park and Mara River Safari Lodge,” concluded Daniel Hartono. (BTN/015)
