The COVID-19 pandemic has become the center of attention in all countries, including Indonesia. The unprecedented pandemic has made the tourism sector sluggish. Even though the tourism sector is an important sector for the Indonesian state, such as its large contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), foreign exchange, the creation of new jobs, and many more. This unprecedented phenomenon has become the main objective of the research, namely to explore the challenges and opportunities during COVID19 on tourist attractions, especially at the Taman Safari Prigen, and impacts both positive and negative, which are closely related to tourist visits, and their management, giving rise to new prepositions. This study uses a qualitative method with a phenomenological approach. The paradigm used is interpretivism.
