You’ll take a stroll across the islands via a series of specially crafted bridges and there’s a 15 minute jungle river cruise to give you a different view of the plants, birds, insects and animals that inhabit this unique, precious and fragile region of the world.

There will be encounters with some of our existing animal residents: Sumatran tigers, orang-utans, macaques and Warty pigs and will see new species, such as the magnificent Sunda Gharial crocodile.
