Giant tortoise

March 22, 2019

I was surprised at the actual size of these animals, and how many of them were in the one place. They were busy munching on their lunch in the sunshine. The road seemed to be unmade, however this did not detract from our experience as the driver was very careful and experienced.


Had a lot of fun feeding tortoises!

What a wonderful place. It was easy to get around. The staff showed us the bats, tortoises and crocodiles. Worth well the price. Will do it next time!
