Safari Stay At A Whole New Level

Safaris are generally rather dangerous affairs. After all, allowing people to enter the natural habitat of wild predators is generally considered a bad idea, considering human beings are literally walking bits of food for several animals.

Imagine then, waking up to the sound of forest creatures as the ring-tailed lemurs begin their morning chorus. At LeoFoo Resort Guanshi, not only can you relax and sip your beverage in the comfort of your room but you also have the chance to view and interact with these graceful beasts up close. Situated in Guanxi, Hsinchu County, this 4 star resort features 161 wildlife themed rooms but more importantly, this resort connects you with nature and animals from your own room.

That’s right, you can just sit in your room and vegetate as curious animals drop by to say hi. Animals live right outside your room, and massive windows are installed in each suite, allowing unrestricted views at any time of the day.

Take the opportunity to snap a selfie with the curious giraffe when it goes near to the large window. Graffes love attention so you can try to come up with some attractive bait to lure them to you. Surely, this will be the ultimate experience for you and your kids.

Here, there are a total of 13 species and 62 animals to keep you entertained. These include zebras, giraffes, and even the white rhinoceros, among other herbivores. Yes, thankfully they only host herbivores. This is a golden opportunity to savour intimate encounters with these animals, including those rarely seen in the wild. Remember to bring a good camera along to capture those priceless safari moments!

Feed and feel

Apart from just sitting back and looking at the wildlife outside, the more adventurous among us who choose to hazard the elements may opt for the myriad of animal-related activites offered within the resort.

For even closer interaction, opt for the animal tour – where hotel staff will lead you along the boardwalk for a detailed look into animal habitats and their characteristics. Or feed and pet rams and brush tortoise shells, as you try not to hum the Madagascar song to yourself while hanging out with cheeky ring-tailed lemurs.
