The Mara River Safari Lodge offers you the chance to go wild in Bali, and I’m not talking about a big night out in Kuta. This themed family resort, located inside the Bali Safari & Marine Park, offers an unforgettable African experience within minutes of the island’s famous beaches.
Each room at Mara River is reminiscent of an African hut, with a thatched roof and painted circular walls. The comfortable interior of the ‘Tandala’ room is decked out with traditional masks, vases, paintings and wood carvings, as well as the modern luxuries you’d expect in a resort: air-conditioning, mini-bar, wireless internet access and international satellite channels on a flat-screen TV. The huge skylight in the rock and timber bathroom makes it feel like you’re showering under the stars, and the room overlooks a landscaped plain where zebras, oryx, wildebeest and an enormous rhino spend the day grazing in front of your balcony. Family-sized suites are available.
A highlight of the resort is the Tsavo Lion restaurant, where a glass wall separates you from your fellow diners – a pride of fully-grown lions! These beasts prowl and roar within metres of your table as you enjoy the diverse menu of Indonesian and Western cuisine.
Get the full safari experience with a three-day/two-night package, which includes meals and access to everything the park has to offer. Take an elephant ride through the grasslands. Get up close and personal with a couple of white tigers. View over 60 animal species from around the world on the Safari Explorer tour, or take a good old-fashioned hike through the rice paddies. Afterwards, unwind with a dip in the savannah-side pool and an in-room Balinese massage. An African adventure with Balinese service makes for the perfect holiday.
