Out of Africa Wildlife Park

The weekend after we visited Knott's Berry Farm with our oldest grandson, we headed north to Out of Africa Wildlife Park with the remaining two grandsons.
The park is located about an hour's north of Phoenix, away from any homes.  Who wants to hear lions roar in the middle of the night?!
Five year old Joshua was ready for photo ops.
One year old Caleb was eager to see the animals.  Hubby obliged with a closer look.
First up was an open-air bus ride where everyone got to feed a giraffe.
"Get back here giraffe!  I want to feed you!"
Joshua loved feeding him.
This baby zebra was quite entertaining too.
The park specializes in big cats.  They even had a show where some of the zoo keepers swam with tigers.

They have a lot of other animals from Africa too.
Naturally, Hubby had to make sure Joshua got to pet the giant albino python.
Joshua enjoyed the prairie dog village too.
For the more adventurous there is a zip line traveling over the animal enclosures.
At the end of the day, parents and grandparents were dragging but these two were still going strong.
In a couple of weeks we'll be heading the 5th wheel to Pennsylvania for a new job at Susquehanna Nuclear Power Plant.  What new adventures await?!


  1. Hi there, I love seeing this; when I read Know Berry Farm I was thinking you meant the one in Ca. I have heard of the African Safari park there though-such memories with your grands! I bet you'll have many fun adventures in Penn. too.
    Have a great day!

  2. Oh Wow! I love to see the animals too. Looks like your two precious little ones showed you two how to have a good time. I'm learning just how much fun grandchildren are. I've heard many good things about Pennsylvania. Hope you like it there.

  3. What cute little boys. Takes a lot to tire them out at that age. I have never been to that park but it looks like a nice place. We have a similar place in Oregon called Wildlife Safari where the animals roam free on hundreds of acres and the people drive through in their cars.
