African Lion Safari is celebrating it's 45th anniversary, and it's where we got up close and personal with over 1000 animals and birds! Did you know that African Lion Safari is Canada's original safari adventure?
The game reserves are what most people associate with African Lion Safari and the animals are definitely the stars of the show, but there is so much more to see and do. We ventured through Kenya Gate, where we found hours of family fun.
We did everything from riding a pony, running off energy in the playground, taking a boat ride on the African Queen, enjoying an elephant show, riding an elephant and playing in the splash pad to cool down.
There is lots of picnic areas and we saw many families enjoying them. A picnic lunch is a great idea, yet, there is a food pavilion with many food choices to fill the tummy. We enjoyed a fresh pizza lunch that the kids loved.
We had an absolutely fabulous visit to African Lion Safari. We liked that parking was included in the admission price and very accessible (meaning we didn't have to walk endlessly when we wanted to go back to our vehicle). We thought that it was a relaxing day and even though there were plenty of visitors it wasn't crowded. African Lion Safari offers families a affordable way to spend a day together, having fun and learning at the same time.
