The Safari

They pride themselves on providing the best tours and safaris on the island and a guide will take you through the jungles as he explains and shares fun facts about every animal or bird you spot. It is a mighty feeling to look at these wild and majestic animals up close, and is an enlightening experience for all those who take upon themselves to attempt the safari.
