Out of Africa Wildlife Park

My daughter, Lauren, and her fiance, Eric, came out to Sedona for a few days this week and we went on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Out Of Africa Wildlife Park. The guides were the owners of the park and their stories were passionate and fascinating. Particularly riveting was their interaction with a black cobra. The snake seemed almost affectionate and this was due, we were told, to special efforts on their part to make sure that their behaviors were totally non-threatening. “When you come from the animal’s perspective, instead of your own,” they said, “it becomes easy to understand how best to relate and interact.”

Many of the animals are just-in-time rescues, and I’ll share some more photos and stories this week.

    Looks like the first one was from when she said YES.
