You may recall from my last post that one of the top tips when traveling with children is to plan fun and engaging activities to occupy them. The third day of our Bali vacation saw us rising early to get a quick breakfast before catching a shuttle bus for an hour-long journey to the Bali Safari and Marine Park.
Combining Balinese cultural ambience with African Savannah, Bali Safari and Marine Park is home to hundreds of amazing animals representing more than 50 species, including some rare and endangered species. The park, which features the Sumatran elephants, Sumatran tigers, white tigers, leopards, komodo dragons and cheetahs, is officially designated as a wildlife conservation park, dedicated towards preserving endangered species through education and research programs coordinating with other zoological institutions around the world.
Hopped onto the safari bus and went for a 30-minute safari tour where some animals came right up to us, even the lions and tigers!
After the close encounter with the wild, we wrapped up the hot day by cooling off the heat in the waterpark.
