I heard that if you wanted to see monkeys or the hornbills, best time would be the 7am tour. Because my son was too naughty playing on the trip until there at 8.30am and there was no animals or birds - however the main attraction for this are actually the lovely trees. The walk to the skywalk is all on boardwalk. No torches are needed, but i recommend that you wear sneakers/shoes and not hiking boots or sandals. You need a good footing on these bridges.
