  Memorable moment at the Giza Zoo
by Tarralee

As an animal lover I will search anywhere I go to interact with animals. Before going to Egypt, I of course looked for an opportunity. I found little information on the Giza Zoo and some was not favorable. We decided to go and see for ourselves. Although this is not a modern zoo, the animals did not seem to be in terrible conditions as some websites would lead you to believe. We were also given some behind the scenes priveliges for some discreet offerings. I held a one year old baby chimp in my arms and I will never forget the emotion that generated. I played with a large lion cub and fed hippopotomus. Those were just a few of the highlights. Everyone was very welcoming and gracious. We hired a driver to take us and he escorted us and even translated for the keepers. All in all it was a wonderful adventure. We will certainly return.
