The Ebony Forest which is densely tropical with various species of exotic trees and flowwrs growing together in harmony. The untouched look of the forest is enchanting.

Hello, you can still use the jeeps for the kids, which is included in our ticket price. Our raised walkways are accessible even if not equipped with hiking gears.
