The new Heart of Africa region (43 Acres) is open at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
I have mixed feelings about zoos but know that they do important animal conservation work and support programs around the world that assist in this effort. The weather was cool for a July day so we kept taking our jackets and sweaters on and off.
I can tell you that the grandkids LOVE going to the zoo to see the animals.
There is always something interesting to learn and experience. A first for the kids was the camel ride.
Six camels are rotated to give the rides.
Aunt Lala was remembering a lengthy camel ride she had in Egypt that she didn’t really enjoy but everyone had fun on Monday.
Yes, it was a bumpy ride.
