I’ve always wanted to experience an African Safari, but the cost has been so prohibitive for me.
Enter, the African Lion Safari, Canada’s safari experience, located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Living near Detroit, Canada is an easily accessible and affordable travel destination for my family.
Having seen a friend post pictures of her experience at African Lion Safari, I’ve been wanting to visit ever since.
After some last minute travel plans fell through, I decided to book a night at the charming Frederick Street Inn bed and breakfast and planned to visit Hamilton, Canada.
Friday, we drove to the Inn, checked in and headed to the African Lion Safari.
We proceeded past exotic birds and llamas in the Nairobi Santuary and into the Lion Country reserve.
Next, we drove into the baboon reserve, and watched the baboons run about, play with each other and jump around their structure. The keepers threw monkey food to them while we were there.
By this point, a torrential downpour fell upon us. We had wanted to enter the compound and see the predatory hawks, elephants, and tropical birds. Today, this just wasn’t meant to be. By the time we exited the parking lot, there were 5 inches of rain in the driveway.
We celebrated our day with a burger and fries from our favorite Canadian burger spot The Burger’s Priest. We went to the Guelph location, followed by a walk through the adjoining mall.
