This is definitely not to be missed. Where else can you walk among safari animals with no fear of predators and no chance of getting lost? Crescent Island is where they filmed the safari scenes for Out of Africa, so they stalked the island with safari animals. We were able to get 10 feet away from giraffes and as close to the rest of the animals as they would let us. We saw gazelles, impala, bush buck, zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, pelicans, guinea fowl, and other birds. It's peaceful, quiet, and lovely to see the animals without being in a car or hearing the engine of the car. I will warn you that the only facilities on the island are two outhouses near the gate. One had TP, the other didn't, so bring your own. The outhouses are nicer than most convenient stores though in that they do have seats and aren't just holes in the ground.

Do the walking safari and what an experience walking 10 feet away from giraffes. Saw a python and eagles catching its prey, a very unique experience not to be missed.

Walking around, we found a family of Giraffes coming to see us. We saw a fox chasing a rabbit, which hid in a hole. It was well priced and a truly memorable experience. I would recommend it to everyone. I wish I'd spent more time here.

I loved being in this Island that is home to a select number of wild animal. To the animals its paradise because there are no big cats to feed on them. Lots of birds, wildebeasts, zebras, giraffes, gazelles...

This is a beautiful island where you can walk around and get close to giraffes, zebras and more. (Island where Out of Africa was filmed)
