  • We went on the tree top walk (seven bridges, you can chose three bridges if you prefer). The walk was exciting but safe. We thought it was great fun. The park includes a restaurant (not tried this time) and several other attractions ideal for children.
  • This is a great place. Our guide was highly informative, patient and considerate (of those who struggled to keep up on the walk). I DO NOT LIKE HIGHTS...and yet, I managed to complete the 'Rope Bridge' walk; which was VERY HIGH. A beautiful place, which is definitely worth a visit.
