So, we should not give children a headset because your son could not control his talking, singing or whatever he was doing into the headset? We should make sure children's microphones don't work? Well that doesn't sound very appropriate to us. We encourage children to...More

Our tour was in the mid-late morning and was awesome, but I think no matter what time you go you'll get to see many different types of wildlife. It was so much fun!
