in Indonesia2013, Trips
Our last day in Bali was really just the morning to burn before going to the airport for a couple of flights to Sorong (via Makassar) to reach Raja Ampat, our ulimate diving destination.
A few more pictures of our resort, Ubud by Como, on the way out:
We got up early to visit the Bali Zoo and Saphari Park. Lack of planning and knowledge (and them having a useless website), caused us not to know they had private safari tours in a jeep for 2 where you could hand feed the animals. That would clearly have been the highlight of the visit. Instead, we got the normal group safari tour, which was still good to see animals there.
We didn't sign up in time for an elephant ride that would meet the time we had to leave by, but we got the camel ride instead, which wasn't bad :)
the private jeep we should have been in :)
We went to visit the tigers:
just like our cat, but a tiny bit bigger :)
either it was very tired, a bit too drugged up...
but eh, it was hard to pass on :)
Time for our camel ride:
grooming, just like our cat
Even if we didn't get to ride one, we did get to feed some elephants before their bath. Their trunk is very very good at probing and tickling you everywhere until you hand out the food :)
Then was time for the elephant show, this zoo's main feature:
Last but not least, we had a quick look at the rest of the place before heading out:
After the Zoo, Tawan drove us towards the airport, but since we had a bit of time left over, we had lunch by the beach, where we hadn't spent any time so far :)
And that was it, the end of our trip in Bali. Next were the flights towards Sorong (via Makassar) to reach Raja Ampat, our ulimate diving destination.
some good shrimp before the flight did the trick
