It was my first ever visit to this hidden gem. I had long walks around the sanctuary and loved it all! A must visit to enjoy the nature in a bustling city area. You wont hear a thing other than singing birds.

Out friends loved it. The dancers are great and the costumes make it amazing.Great for kids and families. The fire walking was great. Fire in general is cool. Would do it again.

We got completely lost and had to exit the sanctuary to find a tuk tuk driver to take us back to the entrance.

We enjoyed our walk around the sanctuary .
Very shaded and not loads of birds as a little late in day for them apparenbtly but nonetheless a relaxing bit of shade on a hot day and very tranquil.
