We were scheduled for a half-day excursion to Ngamba Island but the boat motor wasn’t working so our Wild Frontiers guide substituted this “Behind-the-Scenes” zoo tour. What great luck! Our guide, Nicholas, offered in-depth information on each of the exhibits and carefully explained the mission-specific rehabilitation work of this organization. We piled in the back of his pickup truck and headed off into the giraffe sanctuary where these gentle giants ate carrots right from our hands. He took us into the shoe-billed stork area and showed us how to attract this prehistoric bird by looking down, wagging our heads and making a beyond-description. The rhinos came to him when he called. . . so many more unique experiences. Nicholas’ knowledge of each of the animals, their story and rehabilitation progress was remarkable. Unfortunately, I don’t know the actual cost of this adventure but it’s certainly worth investigating if you plan to visit.
