So 35 per person, when I was there 9 people were signed up (with more asking about signing up when I left the area ) 9 x 35 that's $315 that goes to building enclosures, caring for animals, rescuing other animals in just an hour or so, the entire time Simba was getting some nice exercise Plus the pictures are great conversation starters and help draw more people to LFK to help support the rescued animals. It's a win win win. This place is amazing.
You're right, of course. If not for being rescued, these animals would almost certainly be dead. That's MUCH better than being pampered and cared for at LFK.
I think it's great that the animals are taken care of, and as you said, they're increasing awareness and interest in their own lives AND the conservation of their breeds in their current role.
I sent a note to LFK to see if they would still be offering the Swim with Simba in May and they said they would, so I'm going to jump at that opportunity. We will just get a taxi and go there on our own rather than doing a private or RCCL excursion.
A couple questions -
were you able to reserve that in advance?
If not, where and when did you reserve that?
What time do they do the interaction?
