A few weeks back we did a weekend getaway to Cambridge and took the girls and my mom to African Lion Safari. It had been two years since our last visit. This time the weather was definitely of the “fall is approaching” variety, cool and drizzly. Which I actually loved as the crowds were thinner. Also compared to when we had last visited on a very hot day in July, the animals were less I’m just going to lay here and hide in this piece of shade and more active and interesting to watch.
We didn’t spring for the guided ride in the bus on this visit, but instead just rode through the safari in our van, went and took in a few shows, had a picnic lunch and then road through the safari a second time. The water play area was closed for the season, which the kids found disappointing as the water play area there is pretty darn awesome. So I could see this being the one reason we would go back during the summertime.
Otherwise September visit to African Lion Safari for the win. All in all a lovely day at what remains one of my favourite Ontario attractions.
