After the bumpy and windy safari truck ride, we walked a short distance to “Tombstone City”. There were fascinating and entertaining Wild Wild West show, Multi-animal, Bird and Elephant shows! If you haven't been at least once, of course you have to catch all the animal shows.

Wild Wild West Show



#3 It was a Thursday so it wasn't too crowded, but it was a super HOT day and I still had a smile on my face!

The set, built to simulate an old frontier town aptly named Tombstone City, was impressive in its attention to details.



#6 Apaches on horseback

The show itself was an exciting stunt and pyrotechnics show completed with realistic gunfires, explosions, fistfights and high-altitude falls. As the gallant Sheriff battled with bandits to rescue a pretty Red Indian princess, angry Red Indians rode speedy horses bareback through the dirt road.















Multi Animal Show



Here, we were amused by the rib-tickling performance of a host of talented animals! The show involved a variety of animals, including cats and dogs.





#27 An Albino Python






Bird Show


The birds in this show were truly remarkable as well.

#34 It started with close to 200 birds flying over the crowd. Look at those tourists!

The tricks performed by multi-colored Macaws and Cockatoos were very impressive and entertaining!







#41 I love the tourist's expression in this picture!

#42 The majestic White-Bellied Sea Eagle


#44 The show stealer was undoubtedly the Great Hornbill who swooped in from the trees and caught his food in mid-air.

#45 A troop of stately Greater Flamingos marched in unison through the stage.


Elephant Show

My favorite show was the elephant show! Elephants always seem to look adorable to me. The huge but gentle mammals performed a variety of tricks including painting.

#47 Adorable elephants each with its own personal trainer




#51 *wakey wakey!*



#54 At the end of the show, an elephant came up to the crowd and splashed water with its trunk. *run baby run!*

Show Time Schedule:

Elephant Show: 10.15am & 4.30pm
