What a waste of time and money. After spending a lovely day at the zoo and having breakfast with the orangutans (amazing experience) we decided to go on the river safari. I had heard some negative reviews and really wished I had listened.
It's a really long walk to get to a boat that literally takes you nowhere and you see absolutely nothing. I'm not kidding. The boat travels at a speedy 1km an hour and does a giant lazy turn in a river/lake? and you don't see a single animal or anything other than brown water and greenery. To get to the boat you must first trek a few kilometers past 1 million fish tanks so unless you're a fish enthusiast this is just added to the torture. The staff on the boat hand out giraffe poop to keep things exciting. No I'm not joking. "We are on the River Safari, isn't this exciting. There are no animals or nothing to see so here's some giraffe poop you can look at because honestly, giraffe feces is more existing than this boat ride"....
Don't do it. Save your children and yourselves.
