Bali II Day 2: Bali Safari & Marine Park

I woke up before sunrise to check on the Littlest, who developed a fever in the middle of the night. Thankfully, I remembered to bring medicine with us so her fever subsided after taking paracetamol. Since I couldn't go back to sleep, I managed to catch the sunrise outside my window.

When the rest of the family had woken up, we called a buggy to bring us to Tsavo Lion Restaurant to have our breakfast.

Besides lions, who were mostly asleep and not in the mood for any action, we managed to observe a family of meerkats busy with their day.

The breakfast spread was decent and spiced up with cute panda buns and bread!

Food quality was ok but the highlight was dining with the animals and not the food anyway. However, we couldn't see the lions as our table was not close enough. 

It turned out that the best place for lion-viewing was actually the toilet! 

Look how close the lions were! You can tell that a lion knows its an apex predator by the "openness" in the way it sleeps! Not a care in the world! 😀

After breakfast, we explored the rest of Bali Safari & Marine Park, as we didn't have time to do so the day before.

We started with the Petting Zoo, located nearest to our resort. We brought the raw carrots in our room to feed the animals, who were more than excited to see us!

The kids really enjoyed feeding the goats, rabbits, tortoises and guinea pigs!

We headed to the elephant enclosure next, for the Elephant Conservation & Education Show

We explored the mini elephant "museum" while waiting for the show to start.

The show was quite entertaining! The elephants even joined in the show by acting like it got hurt when it was "shot" at by the actors!

At the end of the show, the audience was invited on stage to take photos with the elephants who participated in the show.  

Next, we headed to Ranthambore to see the white tiger.

This is probably a new enclosure because we didn't see this the last time that we visited.

We walked through the park and spent the rest of our time at the Water Playzone! The last time we were here, the Eldest Girl was only 2 years old and the other 2 were not even born yet!

There were numerous water slides here and adults were allowed to ride the slides too! Both kids and the kid-at-heart (me) had fun on the slides!

The kids refused to leave even though we were there for more than 3 hours under the scorching sun! The younger kids had no choice but to leave when we were too tired and hungry to continue any longer!

We popped by Uma Restaurant for lunch. We ordered our usual mocktails and milk shakes to go with our main courses.

The food was surprisingly good and the whole meal cost us about 700k rupiah, which is relatively cheap considering that it included a seafood platter.

After lunch, we walked back to our room (because the buggy was occupied and we didn't want to wait) and went straight to the pool for a swim!

We managed to feed the zebras some of the carrots that we had left 😁

We ended the day with in-room dinner that consisted of "international" cuisine and cost 500k rupiah 😁

After a long day, it was such a blessing to be served dinner in the comfort of our suite and enjoy the rest of the night together.

Also super grateful that the Littlest Girl felt better and was super energetic throughout the day! Looking forward to another fun day tomorrow 🙂
