African Lion Safari in Hamilton GTA Ontario - places to visit

One of the hundreds of animals that roam freely about the safe environment for visitors to see up close.
 The official website for the safari is:

This picture is not from the internet....I took this picture when we visited the park a couple of weeks ago. If you live in or are visiting Ontario, this is a great day trip to take with family.

African Lion Safari is a family-owned safari park situated in Flamborough, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, about 100 kilometres (62 mi) west of Toronto.  It includes more than 1,000 animals, representing over 100 species of mammals and birds from across the globe. Guests may tour seven game reserves (with a total area of about 300 hectares) traversed via tour buses or the visitors’ own vehicles where animals roam freely in large contained areas. Accompanying the game reserves is a large walking section where hundreds of exotic birds and primates, as well as the park’s herd of Asian Elephants, are on display.
The African Lion Safari is an accredited member of the CAZA, and is also a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), the International Elephant Foundation (IEF) and the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators (IAATE).
African Lion Safari is open from the first weekend in May to the weekend of Canadian Thanksgiving in October. African Lion Safari has an on-site bus in which to tour the park, but public transportation to the park itself is limited.

We took our car around and saw lions, zebras and rhino's up close. You get to see elephants being bathed, bird of prey flying from a distance into the waiting arms of one of the trainers and animals that you can pet.

Bring a lunch or buy your lunch here...and don't forget your camera!!
