Lovin’ Lion Country Safari – West Palm Beach

LCS Modern Boca MomWM

This South Florida winter weather is GORGEOUS and my urge to be outside is stronger than ever! What better place to spend the day than Lion Country Safari? Lion Country Safari (LCS) offers a unique and affordable opportunity for visitors to take a wild african safari without having to leave the country.

In addition to one of my other favorite West Palm attractions the Palm Beach Zoo, Lion Country Safari (LCS) is a prime location to see exotic animals and enjoy some family fun.

Aside from your drive-thru tour of the preserve (+ audio guide) when you arrive, there’s a fun park on property called SafariWorld for after your tour with amusements for all ages.

SafariWorld has an awesome splash pad and water slide (bring your suits and towels!) with lunch options right nearby. I highly recommend pushing calories aside for the day and going for a slice of pizza…or two.

There’s plenty more wildlife to see in SafariWorld plus miniature golf, paddle boats and even a Giraffe Encounter, my favorite part of the whole day! Spend $5 on lettuce and get up close and personal with these amazing mammals while you feed them.

In fact, as 2014 came to an end, LCS welcomed its fifth giraffe birth of the year! On December 30th, a 70-inch, 165-pound baby boy was born on safari. The baby, named Hakuna, is located in the maternity pen with his mom and fellow newborn, Matata (born on Dec. 16). They are visible til March in the drive-through preserve (section 7, Hwange National Park) or from the giraffe feeding exhibit at Lion Country Safari.
