On Tuesday, June 24, 2008 we finally took the plunge and took our two little ones to the African Lion Safari (near Cambridge, Ontario) in addition to the two kiddies I
baby-sit (ages 1 and 2). Thank goodness my hubby was there to help out.

“African Lion Safari is a Canadian owned family business created in the name of conservation. Our manner of exhibiting animals is completely different from the traditional approach; that is, the visitor is caged in the car, and the animals roam in 2 to 20 hectare (5 to 50 acre) reserves.We first opened the gates to the public in 1969 with 40 lions in 3 reserves; today the park houses in excess of 1000 animals of over 100 species. After 39 years we have been successful with breeding 30 species that are considered endangered, and 20 or more species that are considered threatened. The original idea of “maintaining self-sustaining populations of species in decline” is still our priority.” http://www.lionsafari.com/index2.asp
