Going on a safari

While our granddaughter was here visiting during Spring break, we decided to go on an adventure and explore the Tennessee Safari Park, located in Alamo, Tennessee.  According to their website, Hillcrest is a farm that has been owned by the Conley Family since 1858.  A number of crops are still grown there, but presently it is best known for the large collection of animals that they have assembled and are sheltering from around the world.

When you enter the park, you are given the option of purchasing tubs of feed that can be fed to the animals, some rare and endangered, while driving around 3.5 miles of winding farm roads.  Just roll down your window and the animals, which roam freely around the farm, will come to you.  Be ready for up close and personal interaction.

After the driving tour, we parked our car and strolled around the Walk Thru area of the farm.

Our granddaughter really enjoyed seeing and petting the animals, and it was a nice way to spend the day with family.
