What if, you get quarter day only in Denpasar, Bali?
I was confused at first, but a friend of mine recommends me to visit Bali Bird Park. It’s about 40 minutes away from my hotel, Aston Denpasar. It costs me IDR 70,000 for one way taxi ride, you can get much much cheaper rate if you’re familiar with public transport (a.k.a angkot).
Actually, I was surprised when I checked the entrance ticket. It’s US$ 21 for one person!! Geez. I was finally relieved when I found out that it cost only IDR 71,500 for domestic terrorist tourist. Hiyeey…
Heaven on Earth
Bali Bird Park is simply a little paradise for photography enthusiast like me. It has more than 1000 birds of 250 different species consists of finest collection of Indonesian birds in the world plus fantastic birds from Africa & South America. They’re surrounded by 2 hectares of natural green tropical plants, give fresh air for both birds and visitors.
The environment is very clean, so contrast from what I saw at Surabaya Zoo (BonBin). I found not even single tiny garbage in my journey. The birds also looked so happy in their artificial natural-like habitat.
The park is divided into some habitat. Borneo, Balinese, Molucan, African, Sumatra and Sulawesi birds are placed in different habitat. Many of them can fly freely among trees. The birds are so tame, they can even pose when we take pictures *birds narcism*
Much to Do
There’re so much fun things to do at Bali Bird Park. You can take pictures with funny Parrots, Owl, Scarlet Macaw, Hornbills and Cockatoos. Don’t miss their 4-D theatre. It plays semi-documentary animated movie almost every hour. The screen isn’t as big as the one I saw at Dufan, but quite exciting though. (koboi)
Bali Bird Park shows interactive feeding time experience for visitors. The eagles will soar through the sky and strike the food on your hand. On my last moment, I saw their Bird Stars – collection of well trained birds for public show and human contact- accompanied with friendly rangers. They’re so entertaining, no wonder someday one of this birds can fly to Hollywood as a movie star.
Overall it’s a great experience to capture all of those exotic birds in one wonderful park. Well it’s a bit pricey but it pays off. Cuckoo.. (ayam)
