Really interesting concept. Loved playing an escape room outside. 

Good level of difficulty.  Loved the end.

Bloody loved this - I was like an absolute kid in a candy shop once I got outside into the huge open area. Really fun.

This was a fun, bright and breezy end to our day at Kanyu Escape. It's obviously more targeted at the family audience which is reflected in the difficulty. But the opportunity to play outside was novel and the use of the theme was quite clever.

Reviews by escape room review sites

There are sections that will just appeal to the kid in all of us. The focus on African wildlife is good, clean (mostly!), educational fun, and the finale is an absolute hoot

Another impressive experience from Kanyu, and a great choice for a Covid-safe room. It has two difficulty levels (child or adult) and it's a little easier that the other rooms at Kanyu, and maybe a tad less immersive.
