ABC WEDNESDAY: L for LION COUNTRY SAFARI

During our residence in Boca Raton, we visited the Lion Country Safari at Palm Beach County.





The fantastic with this place is that it looks like a real safari.


The animals live in groups into big, free areas and you can pass by and watch them from close.








You can almost feel their breath.








After the tour into the wild life, you can visit the park.


There, you can see aligators, snakes, monkeies or you can feed the animals at the petting zoo.





The kids loved this place.


They had great time at the coin operated machines.




And of course we enjoyed our lunch and the tour at the gift shop.


I wish i could show you more pictures.


After that wonderful day, and before our return to the house, we passed by the Lake Okkechobee.


Another beautiful place to visit.

Isn't it wonderful to see the animals so close and not in cages? The Lion is so impresive.

That's even better than a zoo! Great pictures, too! You have wonderful memories of your time in Florida! Do you miss it?

A good way to train a child in a love of animals--though I wish there were more in the wild places than created ones.
