Borrowed hat, my safari guide
Sporting someone else's glasses
Next we moved to a wide open area with several animals mixed together where they were free to roam at will.

the egg slightly visible to the right of the bird above the big rock.
Moving to the more restricted area of the safari, we visited the refreshment area where one could purchase drinks, cold stuff on a stick, lamb kabobs. The cold stuff on a stick one family purchased reminded me of frozen peas but was I suppose some vegetarian fare. Not my favorite but edible. I purchased the best tea in a can I've ever had. It had the right mix to make you want more.
Moving along from there we presently came to the baby house for animals. We saw baby lions, bear cubs and finally the opportunity for 30 RMB ($5), to feed the baby tiger:
Not as good as the real thing but still a nice picture
Next we moved to where the children could feed giraffes. This was very nice for all concerned. For about $1.50 parents could purchase branches of leaves for the children to feed the animals. The animals were grateful for the food and the squeals of delight from the children made it a fun thing to witness.
