5. Enjoy the unforgettable night safari journey
If you have enough time, you can join the Night Safari Journey. We will ride a cage-bus and bring a pack of foods for the animals, among carrots and fruits. The bus then will stop near the animal shelters between a dark night ambiance. Then the animal will come near the bus window after smelling the carrot. You can feed them elephants and zebras, which will gnaw on their little treats happily.
But, the most unforgettable moment in night safari journey here is where our cage-bus enter the tiger area. It was very dark! I can’t see clearly, just little movements near the trees. Wow! The tigers come. They smell the meat that the park ranger bring. We can feel the their sigh and breath, even mouth salica closely. Wew! A really great great experiences!
6. Wanna stay in safari lodge as in African savanna?
For myself, Mara River Safari Lodgee is a very great concept. Started from April 1, 2008, we can stay overnight inside Bali Safari and Marine Park. If you plan to join night safari, maybe sleep in this lodge will be great deal. This lodge has a nice African theme interior design, completes with big animal pictures, sculpture, and traditional tribal fabrics. From the balcony in the second floor, we can see Rhinoceros, Zebra, or Elephant exhibit.
Just wake up in the morning (before 07.00), we will hear the lions roar and be greeted by the sound of birds conversing on the roof of your hut. After that, we can see the animal have their grazing-breakfast in front of us. We will ride the elephant to the Tsavo Lion Restaurant. We will have our breakfast with two lions walking around in front of us. Don’t be panic, there is a glass that makes sure our safety, haha!
