    Shooting Wild Animals...With Your Camera!

    Harmony Park Safari is an unusual attraction for Huntsville. I haven't laughed so much in a long time as I did when my friend Nancy and I went to check out Harmony Park Safari, a federally licensed nature preserve of free-ranging exotic & endangered animals. This is a "drive-through" animal park where you are required to remain in your car on the two-mile route to see zebras, zebus, antelope, buffalo, a camel, ostriches, pythons & crocodiles. We tried to roll down the car windows to get clearer pictures, but the animals thought we had food and came right up to the car. We played a hasty game of hide-and-seek with them...sometimes almost loosing out to the emus!

    Licensed Cage-Free Animal Park...

    Keith & Shannon Allen opened Harmony Park Safari in 1990 on 30 acres of land off 431 Clouds Cove Road in Huntsville (near New Hope). They were the 19th licensed cage-free animal park in the nation. They are licensed by the local, state and federal government. They use 8,000 pounds of grain a month to feed the animals. Visitors have come from 38 states to tour the park.

    Tatoo, the Zebra...

    I really liked Tatoo, the zebra...he was gorgeous. I just wished he did not get so close so I could get a better picture of him.

    Four-legged Creatures...

    One of the "dangers" of driving through a "safari" is that animals will cross in front of you and it's up to you to yield the right of way to them.

    Habib, the Camel, laid down to watch us driving around and around trying to catch some of the animals in a perfect pose. He seemed content to show us his best side.

    This picture reminds me of a Disney movie! The autumn leaves and the wooded area almost seem to be painted on.
