January 9th and the Tunisian weather was 18 degrees and sunny!
Very easy to get to the park. From Sousse to Tunis on motorway (A1) take the Enfidha/Kairouan exit, (itís abut 12kms from the exit to the park) and then head towards Tunis on the GP1 (old main road).
At the moment, in January, the park is open every day apart from Mondays (closed entirely) from 9 am Ė 4 pm. In the park there are ramps for wheelchairs or buggies/pushchairs.
Cost of entry :
There are several snack bars and restaurants inside, or if you prefer there are many places where you can take a picnic. It is very clean and well kept.
There are 2 souvenir shops, one specialising in jewellery and the other, African style ornaments in wood & leather, paintings etc.
They have a good selection of animals, no reptiles although there was a snake on the road outside, trying to get in I think???
Just Like A Wildlife Documentary!
Wooden walkways take you above the Ďpredatorsí so you are looking down with unobstructive viewing. Tigers, Lions and Cheetahs all wandering around just like you see in the wildlife documentaries.
Highlight Of The Day
The Highlight of the day is either at 11 am or 4 pm training time for Max and Diana, two sea lions who perform to the crowds.
Rides For The Kids
You can ride on Camels or Donkeys all for a couple of Dinars.
If you want a close up photo of an animal the park keepers will enter the enclosures and take a photo for you.
Itís a fabulous fun day out! I havenít been able to visit animal parks and zoos often as my son has a bird phobia, so it was a treat for me and I felt like a 5 year old!!!
