    In very small Safari Park can be visited by car, can observe the animals in a familiar environment. Lions can see right there. Because only a very small 40 minutes, in the Safari Park outside prey do limit that the 15 minutes in the corner. Compared to Safari there before I went to adventure world in Wakayama, and scale also exhibit environmental facility anything or is a scale of about 1-3 minutes. Little animals feel sorry for.

    Is better as long as the car is not crappy choice suffers. Pounding hit, so your own car. And it is dangerous to stop in the middle. Old course. But a little aggressive feel than the Zoo located in the suburb. Rented car because animals are near as cancer can be very valuable experience and is gannbutsu we come did not care to go.
