    We booked the Lion Cabin & it was worth it. To hear the Lions Roar at 5am made the hair on our arms stand up !!
    The food was cooked for us by delightful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. To see all the animals and hear about their stories was one of the highlights of our visit.
    Keri looked after us on our tour & was so attentive during our two night stay.
    The gift shop and jewellery on offer was amazing & a few purchases were made.

    Immediately upon entry we were amazed by the abundance of brilliant and colourful birds. The walk is pretty long for very small kids but there is a cafe about two thirds through. My kid counted nearly 40 different breeds, all living together in a massive covered forest/jungle.

    We bought the bundle with birds of Eden and monkey land. It seemed expensive but was worth every cent. We loved every minute.

    This is a great place to visit where the tours are guided. Much useful information is learned from the expert guide, and there are many species of monkeys/apes to be easily seen in a natural environment. We bought a combined Bird/monkey ticket, which proved very worthwhile.

    Beautiful snake habitat displays arranged in a way for visitors to spot the snakes easily. Our guide, Connor, is very friendly and knowledgable. Was absolutely worth the visit.

    A well-run, professional, ethical, established elephant park.
    The elephants are well cared for in a natural environment. The rangers were informative, and professional. We read reviews that criticised the park for rushing your experience but we did
    Not find this to be the case at all, the rangers were clear with their instructions gave us plenty of time to feed and photograph the gracious animals. Whilst they were stood behind a bar for feeding this was for visitor safety and the well-being of the animals. It is true you can’t stroke the elephants now, but it feels amazing when they feed from your hand and their trunk tickles your palm! A really tranquil experience!

    We loved our visit to Jukani. Only thing I would say is it should be a guided tour for all who visit.

    For once in my life I wished that I could buy all the ceramics on display. What talent, and how masterfully made, well worth the stop and shop!

    Myself and my family spent a lovely morning walking through the forest with Mark. The private nature reserve is a pristine undisturbed area of natural beauty and a real treat to experience. Mark is a thoughtful and informative guide with plenty of stories to tell from his years of working with animals and in nature. A definite recommendation!

    We visited forest nature spa yesterday for the couples experience which included multiple treatments and lunch with bubbly. From the minute we arrived there is a sense of relaxation and tranquility. The building is of Balinese influence and the dining lounge overlooks the beautiful lush grounds.
    Our treatments took place in a small building overlooking lily ponds. Our masseuses were so friendly warm and fun and knew when to talk and when we wanted quiet.
    The massage was amazing, checking we were comfortable, happy with the pressure etc.
    After the treatments we returned to the lounge for a delicious lunch of pasta and tiramisu with bubbly topped up as much as wanted.
    After we sat on the sofas in front of the fire relaxing. There was no pressure to leave it really was heaven! We spent about 4.5 hours there and wished we had booked a room to stay overnight.
    Some people have mentioned the road leading to the spa, it isn’t tarmac but no pot holes and really good condition so please don’t let this put you off.
    I would recommend this spa, it is a truly magical experience.
