Looking to do something fun, exciting and educational?
African Lion Safari loated in Hamilton Ontario, Canada
is just the place for you!
I think fall is the perfect time to visit, it's cooler, sunny and the
animals are roaming enjoying the brisk autumn air.
The park is open 10am-4pm until October 14th.
Come visit Nellie, she is the 14th pachyderm (elephant, rhinoceros, or hippopotamus) born at the park since 1991. Only a couple months old this sweet little thing will win your heart over. She usually makes an appearance at the end of the elephant round up show, being accompanied by her mother Natasha and her grandmother Kitty.
I applaud African Lion Safari for being recognized internationally for its breeding programs as well as for its efforts to support conservation of wildlife worldwide.
Did you know elephants have a 21 month gestational period?
Did you know baby elephants weigh over 100kg when born?
Did you know elepahants can live 60-80 years?
Elephants are very social and enjoy being with each other.
Elephants only sleep 2-3 hours a day because they have to feed their incredible appetite.
Elephants can eat up to 150k of vegetation each day.
Did you know an ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain?
Flamingos are pink because of what they eat
You learn all this and more when you ride their air conditioned bus the entire tour they tell you quick facts and stories, it's about an hour long. You can drive your own vehicle through, see the animals up close and personal but beware, the monkies are little rascals and curious creatures and will pick at the trim, wipers or anything else they can get their sneaky little hands on. The park does offer a monkey detour, you can bypass the monkeys and keep on touring the rest of the park.
I thought this was the perect mix, fun & educational. What's the best way to learn? Have fun while doing it! This is the perfect experience for that!
Don't forget to watch the 'ELEPHANT SWIN". it'll bring a big smile to your face watching them play in the water. This will pull at your heart strings.
There is so much to do... visit the Birds of Prey flying show, its bird of prey centre is home to one of the most diverse raptor collections in Canada, housing more than 125 raptors. Unreal!
The Parrot Paradise, shows just how beautiful and intelligent these creatures are.
Take a ride on the African Queen boat ride where the captain will point out exotic bids and animals as you tour around the lake. The cooler air allows the animals to be more active and easier to spot.
Take the Nature Boy train, it's about a 15 minute ride, totally worth it, who doesn't love riding a train?
There are over 1000 birds and animals at this park and African Lion Safari is home to Canada's largest herd of Rothschild giraffe.
There was lots to do, lots to see, lots of options when you get the munchies. Visit their website to see all they have to offer and plan your trip
.I would highly recommend skipping a day of school
(yup, I said it!)
and taking the entire family of all ages to visit this park and
enjoy all it has to offer. laugh a little, learn alot, have fun
and make memories!
