Va. Safari Park

One of the day trips we took this summer was to the Va. Safari Park, which is in Natural Bridge Va. It's about an hour and a half from our home. I had been before with some friends, but this was a first time for my son and he had a blast! The drive thru park is situated on 180 acres with all kinds of animals from zebras and camels to pot bellied pigs and ostrich's. It's a chance to see animals in a more natural habitat and as you drive through you get to feed them. AND, they are not shy at all! Tons of fun!

My what big eyes you have!

Looks like you all had a great time. I recall many years ago while living in Dallas, we went to one of those parks while my parents were visiting. We were in my mother's brand new Continental and while touring the rhino area, 2 of the males decided to have it out over one particular little lady rhino...my mother was aghast thinking they were going to attack the car. Never happened, but there were some close calls...still laugh about that one!

Haha, what faces! It must've been great to see them up close and personal! I have to say, I love the spotted llama both, but you can't deny the beauty of animals!
