Jill, Gulzar and I ventured into Africa.

I have to say that this is probably nothing like Africa and I found it to be quite disturbing.

The simplicity and the primitiveness of the display left nothing to the imagination and gave no hint to the fact that many parts of Africa is very 1st world and very diverse.

Sadly, in this park, there is no chance that anyone knowing these facts when they visit Africa and see what they have.

I actually didn’t take many pictures because there were only a few mud huts and nothing that showed the reality of what is happening in that part of the world.

After taking a few pictures of the animals, we left quite quickly and didn’t really enjoy this part, obviously.

Also, the blatant racism of the African sign really disturbed us so we left pretty quickly and tried to put it out of our minds so it didn’t ruin the trip.
