Lion Country Safari

Last Thursday B and I took our four kids to see the animals and ride the rides at Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach.  I’d heard of this zoological park many times but had never been so it was a special treat for me too.  Basically you wind your way through miles of paved trails through a wildlife refuge until you hit the amusement park at the end.

And boy did we see animals!  It was the entire cast of Madagascar (minus Gloria) and then some!  So cool!  A lot of the animals came right up to the car and many just crossed the street right in front of us.  The rules state that you have to keep the windows rolled up and drive very slowly for obvious reasons.  I’m actually quite pleased with how the photos turned out given that they were taken through a dusty window.

The amusement park was good old-fashioned fun.  There was a carousel, a small Ferris wheel, a petting zoo, paddle boats, camel rides and miniature golf.  We did pretty much everything and had a great time.  The kids were totally exhausted by the end of the day though.  Cutie Pie didn’t even make it out of the parking lot before nodding off!
