Our family's first safari experience and it was in Indonesia! Our favorite part of the world - Southeast Asia! Of course, we are biased!
The trip to Taman Safari, albeit challenging with kids, is so delightfully educational and sweet. What an adventure is was to see all the animals so free and happy. So unlike the animals in Doha Zoo (well, at least before, now that Doha Zoo is undergoing rehabilitation - we will see!)
But then this was a safari, not a zoo, duh! The good thing was that we went with our hosts' car all throughout the safari - pretty cool just driving through the safari. There were lions, elephants, giraffes, lama, camels, zebras, rhinoceros, monkeys, gorillas, anteaters and all other animals the kids would love to see (if I have missed out anything at all!)
We intend to see more safaris in the future and Taman Safari is a great kick start for this type of family adventure!
