Lion Safari in Cambridge.

Watching captive animals in the cages is much different from watching them freely roaming around in safari.
Lion safari is an attaractive travel destination to see more than 1000 exotic species of animals and birds. Its specially enjoyed by young ones.

It was 60 Kms drive for us to the LionSafari from Stratford.

Entry fee for adults is $22 Cad. which almost covers everything. Map is provided to you so that you can drive through the park by yourself. You can also choose to see the park in Safari tour bus. Check the lion safari website for details and timings.

First animals you will find are Asian elephants swimming in the lake.

You will find Baboons climbing on cars to get whatever people offer them. Be careful & do not to open the windows. You are not allowed to feed any animals in the safari(Although many people do feed them for the sheer fun of having the animals around their vehicles).

Then there were Lions sleeping lazily in the sun. These are not bothered about humans as none of the visitors feed them.

This zebra was just looking around visitors as if its a waste of time.

Herd of deers (i do not know the sub species of it)

Few peacocks were walking between visitors. One of them was dancing with its beautiful feathers open.

Apart from these animals you will also find African Macaws, Different types of parrots, Eagles, hawks, Falcons, Emu, Owls, Cheetah, camel, Yak, American Bison, Rhino, Shetland Sheep and Horse.

Safari also includes demonstration of
Parrots paradise, Birds of prey and elephant round up (this is much like our old days animal circus)

Apart from animals and birds, safari also has Misumu Bay Wet Play area. We were running short of time and could not see this.

:) Tumbaa satosha.
Yes these beautiful memories deserve to be shared and remembered for ever. There were lot of instances when i read through a blog and was so much involved that i felt as if i was living in that situation/place. Those readings inspired me to Blog instead of just posting photos on website.

Thanks for blogrolling.
