Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

African Lion Safari (Flamborough)

Family Tested
High energy

Windshield licking good!

Unless you can't live with the idea of a monkey's little "souvenir" adorning your car's hood, I strongly recommend using your own vehicle instead of the zoo's bus to drive through the game reserves of African Lion Safari. The circuit started with a lethargic scene with the park's felines... then a crowd of baboons started to jump on our car and the real fun began. My kids went wild when the tall giraffe licked our windshield with her black tongue. When the tour is over, there's plenty to do: Witness the elephants swim, watch animal shows, take a ride on the small African Queen and the little train, visit the Discovery Centre. As a bonus in the summer: Get wet at the elaborate water play area.
