Photo Flashbacks: Into the Wild on a Bali Safari Journey 26


Late last year when we returned to Bali for our annual family holiday we took a wonderful day trip out to Bali Safari and Marine Park.

There are so many great things to do and see at this theme park.

But for me the highlight is the 4WD safari journey.

The Bali Safari Ride

We are fortunate in timing our safari journey and arrive at the 4WD safari Jeep just as it is taking on the next load of passengers.  We secure the front row.

The front row is fantastic as we have a great view looking out over the top of the drivers cab and out to the sides.  As we take off our guide tells us that we will be seeing animals from three regions: Asia, India and Africa.

Ok I confess now, I didn’t take notes during the journey so I have done my best at trying to name all the animals and allocate them to the right zone, please let me know if I have got any wrong.  I also apologise for some pictures not being completely clear as I had to take photos through the perspex windows.

We start our safari journey in Asia.

Then we drive into Africa.

Our last “stop” is India.

I’m not sure why there aren’t many India photos – perhaps there is a bit of a double up of animals in India and Asia or I got tired of taking pictures of animals 🙁

Anyway one of the things I really like about this safari journey is that the animals appear to have more space to roam than in traditional zoos.  The animals also seem to live a slightly more normal existence with many different species roaming the plains together (like the wildebeest and ostrich).  However the predatory animals (like the lions, cheetahs and tigers) were kept separate from the rest of the animals – no doubt for obvious reasons.

We all really enjoy the safari journey and I am particularly impressed as it tries to simulate that of a real safari trek, like the ones I have been on in Kenya.

So what do you think?
