Take a trip to the African Lion Safari

May 04, 2016

You can experience an African safari close to home. The nearby African Lion Safari (1386 Cooper Road) is opening its doors for another season. In today’s post from Timbercreek Communities, learn more about this unique family-friendly attraction, just a short drive from our Cambridge apartments.

Welcome to the safari

Elephants, lions, giraffes and more await your arrival at the African Lion Safari, a 20-minute drive from Park Lane Towers Apartments (204 Hespeler Road). This local wildlife preserve is home to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals. The park reopens this spring on May 7th and will remain open to the public until October 10th.

Experience the preserve

There are many ways to experience this local attraction. Many people choose to drive their own cars through the reserve, which takes about an hour. You can also choose to leave the driving to someone else by riding in one of the air-conditioned buses, which have large windows and engaging tour guides that provide background and context for the animals that you are meeting. Looking for still other ways to explore the safari this spring? Take a train or consider an exciting boat cruise.

Plan your trip

Mark your calendar today to visit this incredible wildlife home. Rest assured that the safari will have all the modern conveniences you and your family may need on your trip, including multiple places to eat and fun gift shops to buy a souvenir. HouTC Cambridge Safarirs of operation change depending on the season, so be sure to double check the website before you leave Park Lane Towers Apartments.

The blog team at Timbercreek Communities hopes you will set aside some time this spring for a family outing. We hope today’s post gave you a helpful overview of one unique local option, the African Lion Safari, established in 1969.
