This open plains zoo is about 50 minutes drive from Adelaide . It is distinctive because it is open plains and this gives it a big advantage over conventional zoos.
On entry , one can take a pleasant stroll to view the wild life such as the chimpanzees , koalas and other native animals .
One can take a bus ride and view the giraffes , cheetahs , zebras and the other fascinating wildlife.
However , the highlight is the lions. This is a must see and worth the extra $80 or so . One walks down a sheltered walkway and then at the end is a giant like cage . The guides then enticed the lions with food and before we knew it they were running all over the side and top of the cage . These are fearsome creatures and aptly named the “ kings “ of the jungle . One will never ever get so close to these majestic yet ferocious creatures . We all shivered when they growled . Even the toughest and cockiest persons will show deference to these animals who undoubtedly would have ripped us to pieces without the cage .Just watching them eating , prowling around and interacting with each other is an experience you will never forget .
Everyone was mesmerised by this truly remarkable experience. A must see.
