Out of Africa Wildlife Park (Camp Verde, AZ)

November 14, 2013 |

4.5 of 5.0 stars on both TripAdvisor and Yelp. Not a zoo, you imagine yourself in the Serengeti as you tour areas of the park either on foot or by tram. The highlights of our visit were being kissed by a giraffe and camel, feeding tigers and petting a giant python, but also watching hyenas swallow their food whole and listening to the roars of the lions throughout the day.

Bearizona: Drive-Thru Wildlife Park (Williams, AZ)

November 12, 2013 | 2

I’ve been looking forward to this drive-thru wildlife adventure since I caught an episode where it was highlighted on Travel Channel’s – Trip Flip. We arrive around 2:30pm, after visiting Montezuma Castle, as the animals are more active either earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.

Review: Croc Encounters – Reptile Park and Wildlife Center (Tampa, Florida)

June 3, 2017 |

Croc Encounters is a non-profit conservation and educational facility that provides a sanctuary to unwanted reptiles. On a Saturday morning, we drove 25-minutes from home to enjoy some time with the reptile world. It was a self-guided tour where we were given some turtle food and the opportunity to take a picture with a 3-ft to 4-ft baby gator. Read More

Alligator Wildlife Viewing: Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park – La Chua Trail (Micanopy, Florida)

January 13, 2014 | 1

"There are a handful of places that stand out as excellent locations for wildlife watching in Florida… but the place to see alligators is in the home of the Gators, Gainesville. Located at the north end of the prairie, the La Chua Trail provides an excellent place for wildlife watching, with an elevated boardwalk and lengthy dike out to an observation tower." – Florida Hikes

Visiting Arch’s Iguana Park (Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras)

March 14, 2014 | 2

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… Iguanas… which remind me of a legendary, mythical dragon.

RV Park: Deer Sightings at Hidden Valley (San Antonio, Texas)

November 30, 2013 | 3

We picked Hidden Valley RV Park because it’s situated in the outskirts of San Antonio and was a bit of country. We’ve seen the variety of wildlife in the area from their website’s photo gallery. This morning, we take a stroll on the property to see if we can spot any wildlife. We got lucky! Read More

RV Park: Quail Ridge RV Park (Mayer, Arizona)

November 11, 2013 | 9

RV Day #9: Time to move from Capri RV Resort to Quail Ridge RV Park. We jumped on I-8E and have a 3-4 hour drive. With colder weather approaching, we had researched a good location to stay that wouldn’t have temperatures below freezing and would allow us to explore somewhat North Arizona with the Mini Cooper – Red Rocks of Sedona, Bearizona, Montezuma Castle, and the Grand Canyon.

20 Days in Kruger National Park for $30.14/night

September 9, 2013 | 1

I’ve always been under the impression that you’d need to have a minimum $5,000 budget to enjoy Africa. Is that true? How far is Africa anyway? If you fly all the way across the globe to get there, can’t we stay as long as possible? When is the best time of year to go? What airlines fly direct or with the least stops? So many questions and time to get some answers. (Illustration by Kenneth Gitonga)
