Ok, finally had a good long visit of River Safari. Its not very big, with only about 8 out of the 12 hectare site currently developed. Add to that the boat ride not being in operation (as well as some of the other exhibits), the average visitor could complete the park in an hour. Zoochatters will appreciate the rarities which the average visitor shows no interest for. In essence, River Safari is a very niche park. Most of the exhibits were good, with the Manatees and Giant Otters being clear standouts. In terms of design, there is a lot of theming, but being semi open air (almost the entire walking route is sheltered) reflections are poorly managed in many areas. I'll do detailed descriptions of the exhibits together with the photos, which are coming up shortly.
