Lions & Tigers & Bears, oh my!

For our anniversary this year we decided to visit Arizona's own African animal kingdom, "Out of Africa". Romantic - no, something we wanted to do - yes. Admission got us wristbands and tickets for the Serengeti safari. The safari vehicle was a converted school bus with all the windows removed. It meanders over a crude road through the "Serengeti". The highlight of the safari is the giraffe. The driver had handed out carrot sticks from a five-gallon paint bucket to all the passengers for the express purpose of feeding the giraffe. At the first stop, the giraffe ambled over, poked its head through the window, and was met with hands full of carrot sticks.

Marilyn feeds giraffe

This is the first time Marilyn and I have seen a giraffe up close and we both noted how its hide looked like bad carpet poorly laid.

Although there were other animals on the Serengeti, we were warned not to feed them because they either bit, butted, or would steal your jewelry.

We like fingers with our carrot sticks

Just try stepping off that bus

Nice ring you're wearing there, buddy

The other section of the park was accessible by a tram. The driver/guide stopped at each enclosure feeding the animals pieces of raw chicken. This brought them to the fence and within feet of the crowd. (The reverse would happen if the animals started tossing Chicken McNuggets at the people.)

Oh yeah, mighty tasty chicken

How far do think I can jump?

When's Blondie going to get here with that chicken

It's about time

We thought about having lunch before leaving but at a wild animal park you never know what's in the hot dogs.

Four star dining facilities

With a large variety of rare large animals and the close viewing range, safari in Camp Verde is a winner

Still have all my limbs
