Who would have thought we would be visiting a safari in Korea! Everland is a theme park near Seoul. Along with all the rides and amusement attractions, it has a zoo and Safari World. We took a tour in a special jeep that had bars around the outside of it. This gave us an up close experience with the lions, tigers, and bears. We fed them with long tongs and watched as some of them performed for us. One bear danced for us Gangnam style, others played basketball, and one sat in yoga positions. It was a thrill to be a part of this experience.
For the second part of the tour, we road a bus and saw the animals from a bit further away. Great to see them, but not nearly the same exhilaration.
Below, are some pictures taken while on the tours.
I can hardly wait to share some of these pictures with my students when we talk about our summer vacations. I think I will have to make some special activities for writing using these pictures.
