Animal adventures! This was one of my favorite days. We went to the Cat Park, Monkeyland, and Knysa Elephant Park.
The Cat Park was filled with lions, tigers, leopards, hyenas, and some other wild animals. They were all rescued from abusive settings, such as circuses, illegal pet owners, etc.
Monkeyland was similar – the monkeys were rescued from zoos and illegal pet holders. They are placed in this sanctuary, free roaming, to learn how to be monkeys again. We learned that monkeys DO NOT make good home pets, as they begin to compete with other humans in the house and potentially seriously harm their owners. The monkeys came very close to us, but we were not allowed to touch them.
The best place we went was Knysa Elephant Park. We were able to feed, pet, and take pictures with the elephants. They were wonderful!!!
