Safari Park, Guangzhou
Today we spent most of the morning at a local zoo. It's actually called the Chimelong Safari Park and is owned by an entertainment company that has a water park and a circus in Guangzhou. It was a very nice zoo with most animals in their natural habitats rather than cages or behind glass enclosures. We started the outing by doing their Safari on Wheels which is a trek through an open wilderness area on a tram. You can also drive a car through as well. There was a good variety of animals from reas to bears to giraffes to zebras to elephants, hippos, and gazelles. (Plus a lot more.) The remaining time we spent doing the walking trails through the zoo. Most of the exhibits were set up so they were very close to walkways so you could really see the animals. Many had keepers out and about interacting with the animals or had a feeding station so you could buy food for the animals. When I talked to the kids back home this morning, they were a little shocked we were going to the zoo. (Mostly because they were missing out, I think.) So these photos are for them-enjoy the zoo!
