Day 6 - Thursday, August 30th, 2001

Thursday, we went to the African Lion Safari just south of Toronto. Most of the Safari is a drive-through park so we stayed in our motor coach and drove through - lion, cheetah, camel, zebra, ostrich, giraffe, buffalo, deer, elk and more. The animals were out in the open and many came up close to our coach. Especially, the monkeys! They actually climbed up the sides and front of our coach, hung from the mirrors, and even got on the roof. Two had babies clinging to them. As our coach left the monkey's area, a park ranger had to check over, under, and around the coach to see that all the monkeys had gotten off.
