It was my first experience to see the African lion safari two years back.My brother had flown down to Toronto to meet us.So we had been planning where we can take him and African lion safari was one of the chosen places.
I was hoping to see just the lions as the name suggests but was pleasantly surprised to see many more creatures there.
Also it was first experience for me to see the animals roaming all free while we were driving around in the car.It was much more fun than a zoo visit.
We went in the month of August and it was good season to go.
T was nearly a year old and she slept as soon as we reached the safari.
The weather was lovely when we reached there but the sudden rain made it cold.I did not take any jackets for me or for T.
So had to search the gift shop.Unfortunately they do not sell any winter clothes.All I could find was a stole to wrap around T.I bought it and yes it was overpriced.
The trip was fun and when the rain stopped the weather was awesome.
The food was not that great.Not many varieties to choose from.Even fewer options for vegetarians.
For a summer trip –
Take sun screen, sun glasses, hats
Plenty of water
Pack food from home.
Check the weather before planning the trip to avoid surprises and sudden variations in temperature.
Below is a photo tour of what I saw.

Enjoy!! or should I say “Have Fun” as my daughter cheerfully says to me whenever she says bye 🙂 and goes out.
