Our first full day in Pine Mountain, we went up the road a couple of miles to the Wild Animal Safari which is a 500+ acre drive-thru animal park with around 600 animals. Having done one of these places near home in our car, I was relieved when the group decided to go on the bus for a narrated tour and spare the car the giant slobbering that it would have received from the animals.
The vast majority of the animals were grazers that roamed freely through the park, with the exceptions being three lions in a large cage and a rhino and a camel that were in fenced areas as they are not really car friendly. Lot's of photos follow.
I was surprised when we arrived at the park and found a parking lot full of cars at a drive thru zoo, but as it turns out they had lots of cars and vans for the visitors to use for their drive through the park. Note the little ones.
It was a fun way to spend a couple of hours as my girls head toward me on the way out.
For dinner that night we went to Aspens Mountain Grill in downtown Pine Mountain and I forgot the camera but the food was good and the prices were reasonable.
Later that evening, most of the group assembled outside our coach and we spent the evening getting caught up since last falls rally.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
