Got to be on time for this great night at the zoo. As soon as the doors open you are ushered in a hurry and seated on picnic style seating in a covered outdoor area. Drinks are served immediately, service is outstanding and with a BIG smile. No sooner have the drinks been served (choice of wine, beer, soft drink or juice - several drinks allowed) that the food appears and everyone is lined up ready to collect dinner. The meal consists of roast meat, beef and chicken, roast vegies and salads. Whilst the meal is nothing to write about, it satisfies the belly! Dinner is quickly followed by dessert, several choices, nothing spectacular but nonetheless satisfying. During dinner we are serenaded with several Australian ballads by a solo guitar player/singer.
We then move on to the 'show and tell' in the zoo. We are handed small torches and head over to the crocodile enclosure to encounter crocodiles and watch their activities in the dead of night. Our night was cold so the crocodiles were very docile and uninterested in eating preferring to smile and ignore the food on offer. The crocodile enclosure is followed by a short tour around other areas of the zoo including a cuddle with koala.
We head over to another covered open air building, where more drinks are served, again, wine, beer, soft drinks and juice. Now it is time for Australian song and dance. What a hoot! It is well organised, the staff are well skilled in encouraging participation and in no time at all everyone is up and dancing. Our group of people, 17 Caribbean sports administrators are singing and dancing in no time and loving every minute of it.
To finish off the night we head over to a small outdoor fire where we are greeted with warm damper and a cup of billy tea.
AWESOME Night! Lots of fun, well organised, interesting, interactive, unique and pretty good value for money. Also brilliant staff who join in and encourage patrons to get involved. Definitely worth a visit.
