When doing a bit of research on what to do in the cairns area we came across this little place that looked quite good on their website and brochure, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were excited as it is the only real safari in the area but what a disappointment right from the start.
We arrived with high expectations (this may have been the problem, don't arrive with any expectations and you may have a great time), the lady at the front desk was nice enough but only really gave us the basics. We forgot to ask what time the feeds were or if they were even on (mistake number 2 on our part).
Now don't get me wrong the animals in this place are spectacular, we saw a hippo up close eating and it was incredible! There's a rhino, a bunch of lions, apparently tigers (although we looked everywhere we couldn't see them), and the monkeys and chimps are cheeky little things too.
However we only ran into one other family when ws were there.. no keepers around, no grounds people.. and as the other family said it's creepily quiet.
There was this eerily quiet feel about the place that made it very creepy..
Anyway the day was a bit expensive considering we didn't get to see any talks or feeds (not sure if it was on, but the staff at front desk gave no indication to if it was on or not).
I hope we just caught them on a bad day as this place could be spectacular!
The animals are just delightful, I think it's just the way this place is run that has made me feel so disappointed.
