Safari Park

A good friend of mine invited us to join them on a trip to the safari park. It’s a quick trip down the interstate from our house and was a total blast.  We rode together which made the trip much more fun.  Sammy enjoyed the company and we all had fun feeding the animals from the car.  Here are a few shots I was able to snag!

Claire and was brave feeding this guy:

Sammy is a true animal lover and loves to feed them all!  He fed the goats all by himself this time and loved every finger nibble and lick he received:

The safari park also has a small zoo of animals.  Lots of birds, kangaroos, tigers, monkeys, reptiles, etc:

There was TONS of kids there.  I wanted to take one home so we wouldn’t have to cut the grass:

We drove through again without any food and just tried to pet some of the animals and I was able to get more pictures since they weren’t trying to rip the buckets of feed out of my hand!

The big camels are fenced in so they don’t get in the way but you can drive up to them and feed them:
