Go “ON SAFARI!”™ with African Lion Safari #CAArewards


Class trips were always something I looked forward to.  The most memorable trip for me though was going to African Lion Safari.  It was grade 3 and I came home with great memories and a super awesome looking spear complete with feathers.  Honestly, I’ve never forgotten that trip, it was so fun and so exciting it really left a lasting impression.


African Lion Safari, located in Hamilton, Ontario, lets you get closer than you ever imagined to majestic lions, graceful giraffe, rhino and many more animals from around the world. Experience an adventure like no other as you drive through 9 km of safari trail in your own car or on an educationally guided Safari Tour Bus.  This truly “WILD” experience also includes a full day of family fun with bird & animal performances, boat & train tours!


I’ve really been looking forward to going back to African Lion Safari with my own family.  Keira is at an age now where she might not remember the trip, but she sure will be amazed by the experience of going on Safari at African Lion Safari.  She is all about monkeys right now.  Every time she sees one all I hear is “Ohhh!  A Monkey!  A Monkey!”  so I am pretty excited about visiting with her and seeing her reaction to all the animals roaming around.

I’m also thrilled for my husband to visit African Lion Safari too.  I know he will love the chance to see all the exotic animals roaming freely in the reserve up close from the safety of the tour bus.

  11. I love that your family can have the up close personal experience with animals and at the same time be educated on them……….. 🙂

  12. It has been so many years since we were last there – my son was only weeks old and is now turning 8 in September….I remember when we drove thru the enclosure, my daughter (then turning 4) squealing when she saw the lions all around us. We were the 2nd car to enter the enclosure that day, so feeding had just finished so all the animals were still active and right there for you to see…
