Safari Wildlife Park for Camera Critters

During our vacation in Ohio we stopped at a Wildlife Safari Park. It is located in Port Clinton not too far from Cedar Point amusement park. This is a safari that you drive your car thru and you can feed the animals that are close to your car.





 Unlike Disney's Animal Kingdom where they drive you thru and you do not feed the animals. A warning these animals are looking for food and will stick their heads way into the cars to get the food.




A Giraffe has really long neck and can really reach far places.  I managed to take some pic's of the animals that were at the car in front of us and all around us.




These two are checking us out to see of we have food for them.




This guy looks really hungry.




This one is a real cutie.




I had to show this too, my hubby and son are at the top right of this ride.





This is my entry for this week's Camera Critters and to see more wonderful critters go and visit Misty Dawn at Camera Critters

Thanks for stopping by to see my critters. Thanks to Misty Dawn for hosting Camera Critters!

  4. BFF Judy and I visited a similar place in Virginia. It was fun, but some of the animals were a bit aggressive - BFF's tormenting me with llama cards and toys to this day.

  10. I've been to this park many times. Did you have any buffalo come to the car? Their heads are just massive! Once you drive through that place, you need a car wash before heading home!

  13. I thought I'll see a long neck giraffe starts from the top of the computer until the bottom, and goes further, when I scroll down..

  14. Like the giraffe and the dude with the big rack. I'm amazed they Let, or more like encourage, the feeding of these animals. They come so close. Yet it sure is an incredible experience to get so close. Nice captures.
    The ride looks scarrier than the animals.
