Lion Country

We went to Lion Country with our homeschool group and the kids all had such a great time! There are so many fun things to do there. It's very interactive. The kids had a short "lesson" time with one of the animal trainers and then explored the park. They were able to feed giraffes and birds and pet the goats. They also spent some time playing at the splash park and riding the ferris wheel (or fairest wheel as yaya would call it). On our way out we drove through the animal safari which was full of all types of exotic animals. It took us about an hour to drive through. Their favorite site was monkey island. The monkeys can't swim so putting them on a small island allows them to roam around without being caged in. It's fun to watch them climb and swing! The lions are the grand finale of the safari. It was almost 5 o'clock in the evening when we were driving past them and they were starting to get active. There was one lioness who was playing with a large ball. It was very "cute". They are such amazing animals and look so harmless when they are playing and lying down taking a nap. For more info on this great park see: .
