African Lion Safari - Part One


460 pictures...and I could have easily taken hundreds more.  The kids took almost as many again between them.  They were completely enamoured with the animals.  The African Lion Safari was everything I remembered it to be.  

I managed to narrow the photos down to just over a hundred.  Still too many.  So they're going to be coming at you in parts.  

Like a mini-series :)
























It was a day well spent, and I got to strike off another item on my Summer Bucket List.

  7. Seeing those lions play or veg out atop the rock, it is hard to imagine how ferocious they can become.

  10. Awesome on so many counts! Crossing off a bucket list item is key.
    We used to have a safari at Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ, but I think they closed it eventually. I was sad!

  19. I admit, I am not one who is much into zoos, caged animals and all. I know there is a (good) purpose to it, but still.... Yet, at least on these 'free range safari farms' the animals have got some kind of freedom. You caught some beautiful pictures while there. I am sure it is quite the adventure. One day I hope to be able to go on a safari in Africa and see wildlife - sigh - but, who knows, for now I would settle for a safari farm. I am glad that you guys had fun!

  20. Wow! Again ... You're so lucky

  21. Just looked at all three safari post pics - so great! These are the best shots of lions I've ever seen (barring professional shots in Africa) - usually the lions we see are sleeping.

  23. lovely shots of the lions on the plinths. is that on the way from the airport towards Hamilton? I passed by there last June but having lived in Africa for 4 years I decided not to visit.

    1. It absolutely is! It's a decent safari, considering it's smack in the middle of Ontario :)
