“Great concept but over-priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

We were intrigued by the concept of having animals roaming by the balcony. The rooms are great with 2 king sized bed and large bathrooms. The rooms are clean too, without any animal smell, although the animals are just at the area in front of our room. However, the meals are not so good. Our kids also lost interest as the animals are not that close too. At a rate of S$500, as compared to S$200 in taipei city, we think it's a little over-priced. I would suggest to stay for a night only just to get the experience.

Room Tip: Request for a room that is closer to the centre to get a good view of the animals

A great place to see giraffes, rhinos, zebras, monkeys, goats, etc. roaming about the resort grounds from your rooms and balconies. Large room with 2 king sized beds on the upper level and another king sized bed on the lower level. Large bathroom with 2 toilets and 2 shower areas. Great variety of food during meal times. There's a section for kids, vegetarians and desserts. There are also traditional African performances at the lobby at selected timings. Lastly, this resort is located only 5 minutes away from the Leofoo Village Theme Park.

Room Tip: Get rooms with balconies that face the central range area between the 2 blocks of rooms.

A great place to bring the kiddos. After all, it's not everyday that one would get to wake up to having giraffes, rhinos, zebras and etc roaming outside your balcony. A plus to have shuttle service to and fro the LeoFoo theme park. But would definitely need to work on improving the quality of food at the level 2 restaurant.

My son loved being so close to the giraffes!

We went during the off-season, so the theme park was very pleasant and we got our pick of the rides.

The meals were ok but the beds were too lumpy/soft for my tastes.

Where you get to see animals meandering about outside your windows. Where you see giraffes licking your windows. When meerkats accompany you in your walk. Where goats fight for the right to eat from your hand. However be sure to book your meals in the restaurants well ahead of schedule as visitors come by bus loads or you will be left with the instant noodles from the vending machines.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with full height windows so you can be close enough to the animals. Don't choos...

We stayed at the resort for one night. It was in the giraffe section. The room was very spacious and you can fit 6 people in it. We had a view of the park and saw monkeys, flamingos, rhinos, zebras. Didn't see giraffe since it rained the entire time. We had the buffet for lunch/breakfast. The was a variety of food but nothing special.
I would suggest arriving early so you can enjoy the hotel/animals. Don't need more than a night there.

Room Tip: room facing the park so you see animals from your balcony

Seriously, the wow factor only lasts for 1 day max when you first step into the resort at check-in...so my advice is to just stay 1 night (which we did and no regrets on that). Dinner and Breakfast were included in the room rate but food quality is below average...so don't expect much even though you paid quite a bit for the room. No smell of animals in the room. Bed is clean and comfortable. But the animals don't look "well maintained"...

Signed up for the private Safari Tour...pretty expensive but it was a chance to get close to the lions and tigers...so it was pretty exciting if you have not been to African Safari.
