The Pula Reserve Trail is about 1km long and takes 60 minutes passing an African village, Vervet monkeys, lions, African Wild Dogs, hippos, Servals, cheetahs and gorillas. Try out the safari bus for an up-close-and-personal view of zebras, giraffes, bison, addax, camels and Impalas as close as you can get without going to Africa. The Rhythm of Africa is a great way to see the animals in the evening before they bed down for the night. Bring a picnic and listen to the African music.
