Day 15 - Lion Country Safari

We went north a bit to West Palm Beach as Bridget wanted to visit a high school friend. Lion Country Safari was a little further down the road so Bridget picked up tickets. The park is drive-through so we left the soft-top Jeep at their home and rode in their minivan. 

Large gates with cattle guards broke the park up into different areas. In many cases, the animals roamed and came up to the car. There were exceptions, such as the lions. I think they figured that some people didn’t have enough common sense to leave their windows closed.

It was a hot afternoon and many animals were resting in the shade…

Or in ponds…

I think that it only went a few degrees warmer than this but I think we are done with the driving portion of the park.

The giraffe was near the end and after parking, there is a walking section of the park including a giraffe feeding area. 

Afterwards, we had lunch at Don Ramon, a local Cuban restaurant. Something new for us…


  1. That is one thing I miss about living in Miami, the Cafe Cubano and Cuban food for the most part.

    1. You don’t miss the traffic and the people?
