What is almost certainly Bali's – and perhaps Asia's most unique dining venue has opened with the inauguration of the Tsavo Lion Restaurant at the Bali Safari & Marine Park, located just 20 minutes east of Denpasar on the new Jalan Bypass Professor Ida Bagus Mantra highway.Click Images to Enlarge
Set within the 40 hectare site of the newly opened Bali Safari & Marine Park, the Tsavo Lion Restaurant is built in a style reminiscent of a Kenyan Lodge. A circular outer wall constructed of thick tempered glass separates diners from a large pride of magnificent African lions who, during the course of our visit, had a tendency to keep a close watch over our dinner with their noses pressed against the glass window next to our table.
Drinks prior to dinner were served on an open patio where eagles, owls and hornbills sat perched on railings, seemingly listening in on the guests' conversations. On one sides of the patio the lions sat proudly on a stone outcrop, while on the other a herd of zebras, wildebeest and a solitary rhino enjoyed their evening meal. At the entrance to the patio a group of 5 Sumatran elephants acted as a welcoming committee for the privileged guests attending the Dining with Lions evening.
A well-stocked bar, a sumptuous buffet and music provided by an African drum band and lady dancers rounded out a memorable evening.
