Guide to The New Normal: Bali Safari Staycations
What this pandemic teaches us is to make use of the space around us. For example, as Bali has opened up, many Bali and Indonesian residents are getting out to enjoy an incredibly quiet island, with exceptional prices are exceptional staycations.
Why should you spend your time in only one place?
For some people, the idea of a staycation may seem unusual. Isn’t that the opposite of ‘traveling’? Well, just because you don’t change your location so often, doesn’t mean your travel experience is going to be less exciting than usual. If you pick the right place, that one place will have a lot of surprises for you.
Mara River Safari Lodge is more than just a resort where you can stay comfortably for multiple days. It is the official hotel within Bali Safari Park and the official accommodation lodge complex for our beloved wildlife park. Here’s the thing — it was built in the middle of the park on purpose. Whenever you wake up in your lodge and head down to get breakfast, the first thing to greet you is a real pride of lions at the Tsavo Lion Restaurant Bali.
Taking a dip at the Kiboko Pool, you can enjoy your cocktail while taking in a panorama of the Savannah inhabitants — rhinos, ostriches, zebras, and more. If you are a guest at Mara River Safari Lodge, Bali Safari Park effectively becomes your own backyard as you gain unlimited access to the park, with our compliments.
Good hygienic practices in the park
We would like to remind you to follow our standard safety protocols at any time you are outside your room or inside the Bali Safari Park area. Wearing a face mask is now compulsory in Bali, and you will see all of our staff taking the necessary precautions around the park.
Almost all species of fish have antibodies within their gills, which helps the fish not only to filter out dirt particles but also bacteria. However, our masks don’t work that way. Instead, wearing a mask in public will protect other people from our own microscopic intruders. Wearing a mask in public will also encourage other people to wear their own, and this will protect yourself from a potential infection.
Wash your hands frequently at one of the many conveniently located handwashing stations around the park.
Remember also to maintain a physical distance of 1.5 meters. In the wild, some lobster species are able to detect whether another lobster is sick, and they then keep a distance to avoid getting infected.
Follow these safety protocols and protect yourself, protect your loved ones, and protect your neighbors while enjoying all the wonders that Bali Safari Park has to offer.
