Canada in the WILD
Your November 02-2019 Itinerary
10:00 am One hour after our departure we will arrive at Omega Park Welcome Centre. Here you will have a chance to view the Park House, the gift shop, the panoramic view of Bird Lake as well as see small animals.
10.30 am Board the bus again and begin the park adventure. In the safety of our bus, we will drive through the wildlife park, safari style, while viewing, feeding and interacting with the animals. You will be provided with carrots to feed them, and will be amazed at how close they will come to you. Enjoy this experience, the landscape and the park. You may be able to see the following animals: moose, deer, wild boar, buffalo, bison, caribou, coyotes, wolves, bears, foxes among others.
We will stop at the 'First Nation's Trail' where we will go for a mini hike around Lake Trout. If you are lucky there will be white tailed deer in this area and they will come right up to you, so keep some carrots handy!
