The next day after we got back from Akaroa, we all went to http://www.oranawildlifepark.co.nz/(Orana Wildlife Park). The visit was quite short because we had to return the rented car back by time. So, we just got ourselves on the zoo train, went around the zoo once, and visited couple of feeding stations. Zoo here is quite different compare to zoo in Malaysia since the way they keep the animal makes you feel closer to the animal. There is no big steel cage, and also sleeping hidden animal. The natural environment and landscape with small creek across the zoo really gonna make u feel closer to mother nature. Not forgetting the lion encounter where visitors can ride in a cage at the back of a modified lorry and then enter the lion cage.
Anyway, since the visit was short, I'm planning to go there again, but this time, well-armed with my 70-300. 8-). Featured also, my visit to Cat show happening in Horticulture. In New Zealand, it is quite hard to find a stray cat or dog since they have strict law about pet and actually, it is not a about the law. It is about the people. Their discipline compare to us is like diamond and bucket of garbage. $-) It is bitter truth.
