We drove from Victor Harbor to our final destination today. Just outside of Adelaide.
Since we had a few hours to kill before showing up (David’s aunt and uncle who we are staying with were out until late) we decided to check out a local zoo (Monarto Zoo). It was an African Safari styled zoo, and since the weather was so hot (around 100!) they closed the walking trails and only allowed a bus to take us around. The animals weren’t in cages, and instead were free ranged in a park like area built for them. To see them the bus drove down roads through their fenced areas to give us a chance to see them. Some walked right up to the bus while others stayed off in the shade.
It was really neat -seeing the animals that close.
Meerkat (my favorites!)
And finally, the cheetah. This one was hand raised and trained by the zoo. They were able to hand feed her.
