So much fun! What a great experience seeing the animals up close, wearing the gear, walking suspension bridges and chatting with keepers. So awesome! Would do again.

Trek took 3 hours, but worth it. You get to see so many extra on the Safari attraction. The highlight is lunch on the savanna with the animals. The 200 photos make a great keepsake. I would do this again without hesitation.
