Asian Riverine Forest
Out of Equatorial Africa, the tram meanders into the riverine rainforests of Southeast Asia.
Major highlights along this route are the encounters with the free-roaming Malayan tapirs and, of course, the all-time favourite Asian elephants.
Keep your eyes peeled for the tapirs whose black and white coats give them excellent camouflage in the dark. They almost always appear within an arm’s length of the tram, foraging slowly for shoots and leaves in the undergrowth.
The bearded pigs and the highly social red dholes also call this region home. Swift and nimble, the endangered red dholes live in tight-knit packs in the wild. Here, you can see the wild dogs in their naturalistic forest clearing habitat.
From the Asian Riverine Forest, the tram descends into the Nepalese River Valley for an encounter with the diverse life forms of the wet marshlands and low-lying terrain.
