Chandelle Goes on a Safari Adventure In Springfield, Missouri – Seriously

This past weekend I was able to make the drive home to Springfield, Missouri to visit my mom for the day. While I was there, we visited a local Drive-thru Safari for something to do. At first, I was a little skeptical, because I wasn’t sure how exciting a safari in the middle of Missouri could really be. But once we got there, it was actually a really neat concept.They had a variety of animals in somewhat of a typical zoo-like setting that you could walk around and visit, like lions, monkeys, and a baby giraffe. And once you were through looking at those animals, you could drive through the safari to see the bigger animals that were roaming. Now, I didn’t really know what to expect. I just assumed you would drive around and see the animals from a distance. But about two seconds in, I realized that that was not the case at all. These animals were well aware that you had food with you, and were not afraid to go after it. Camels, zebras, buffalo, and llamas (to name a few) were poking their heads in all of our windows in search for food. Truth be told, at first, I was absolutely terrified. But by the end of the drive, having a wild animal practically lay its head on your lap, seemed like no big deal. Although, there was one animal that absolutely scared me to death, and i refused to roll down my window for. There was a giant bird that insisted on chasing us everywhere we went. The signs claimed that it was an ostrich, but I’m almost positive it was more like something from Jurassic Park. Overall, the experience was awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone that has the opportunity to go on one.


Feeding the zebras was by far my favorite. They would open their mouths for you to throw the food in.
