This is an all day Safari! Get up early pack the lunches, grab the camera and the kids with really comfy shoes and plenty of water. Then get their early to get a good parking spot. Now they have modified the parking to a much larger parking lot so that is a new perk. Grab a Map so you don't get lost. There is a lot to see but take your time and enjoy it. You can always come back for more. Oh! during the Holidays they have the Festival of Lights! Nothing like taking the train thru the zoo at night with Millions of Christmas lights! Cool Stuff. Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh my! Don't forget to go to the Bird show!
