River Safari

When we arrive the River Safari, we were disappointment to find out that the boat ride is not open yet. That's the consequence of not doing our "homework" beforehand. Since we were already there, we might as well go visit Jia Jia and Kai Kai. But before we can see the pandas, we'll have to make our way through the significant rivers of the world.

The Mississippi River runs through ten states in the United States of America - Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.

The alligator snapping turtle showed us its backside.

The Mekong River runs through six countries, namely China, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

The YangTze River (长江) in China is Asia's longest river.

After learning about the inhabitants of the rivers, we come to the Giant Panda Forest. This is where you will find the two famous pandas, Kai Kai (凯凯) and Jia Jia (嘉嘉).

We continue the journey across a bridge to the other area of River Safari - Wild Amazonia.
