Lion Country Safari Experience

March 7, 2018

Last month my oldest Giovanni turned seven years old! I still can't believe how fast the years go by, I remember the day he was born like it was just yesterday. It's crazy to think that I became a mom seven years ago. The week before his birthday unfortunately we all had the flu, not only was I not going to be able to plan a little party for him last minute but my house was a mess. We gave him some options and asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday. After he found out everything there was to do at Lion Country Safari he immediately said he wanted to go!

Lion Country Safari is a drive through safari and walk through park. The website recommends you spend around 4-5 hours to enjoy both the drive and the park. We were there for about 5 hours and were able to enjoy everything the park has to offer. The drive through experience was very nice, you get to see all the different animals up close walking by your car. One of the best memories we had on the drive through was having the Ostrich tap at our window. The kids really enjoyed it, they were all laughs and giggles.

The park offers a lot for your little ones, they have rides, animal feedings, petting zoo, mini golf, paddle boats, and a water play area. We walked around and saw the different animals through the park, then the kids got on the rides. The rides they have are the flying elephant, a train ride, a fun slide and a carousel. After that we went to feed the animals. I have to say the best part was being able to feed the giraffes. They are such beautiful animals and we were able to capture a lot of great pictures.

We decided that it would be best to save the water play area for last. We went ahead and made sure we saw everything there was to see and let the kids get on the rides so once we settled in the water park area they could really enjoy their time. If you are planning on going make sure you pack a bag with their swimsuit, towels, and sunscreen.

Overall we had an amazing time! If you have little ones that love animals this would be a great place to take them too. Once we got in the car we all took a turn and said what our favorite part of the day was, can you guess what my kids picked?
