I deliberately haven't posted anything on the subject yet, but now that paradisio opens in a few weeks and that the new project is finished WITH the main inhabitants coming soon, I thought I might give the international crowd a preview. The "Kingdom of Ganesh" is an Indonesian garden with artificial rice plateaus, tropical vegetation, an authentic village and 2 REAL Balinese temples. these temples were not ony built in Bali and flewn in, they are inaugurated by a Balinese priest. So basically they can have religious services there. But of course it's not only a pretty picture. it's in a zoo, so there will be animals. Several of them are already in the park like indian porcupine, crested macaque, waterbuffalo, hornbills, ... others will be coming soon like asian mongoose, king cobra and of course the elephants. Paradisio will start out with 2 female circus elephants and 1 male from a dutch zoo. Later on, other enclosures will be constructed to total at least 3 elephant enclosures.
