Camping with the Caribou!

Almost glamping. What an awesome adventure to be camping with Caribou. Come on a safari with me. Don't worry you don't have to go all the way to Africa. We're heading north to Canada, Saguenay in Quebec. Welcome to the Saint Felicien Zoo, they celebrated either 50th anniversary this year! http://www.zoosauvage.org
This probably isn't like other zoos you may have been to. The polar bear exhibit is very popular. Many people gather around to watch these aqua lovers play and eat.  If you can't get away right now, they have live webcams so you can take a creativity or mental health break and just watch as these beautiful creatures roam and play. Their habitats are grande and as much of a natural habitat as possible. 

Be introduced to their ecosystem with an interactive movie. Feel, touch, smell; awaken your senses through a marvelous movie that was filmed in the park! 
Take a tram ride through the Nature Trail (natural habitat) where you can get up close and personal with black bears, wolves, Elk and Caribou! Guests can become VIP's, with their own personal guide for more than 24 hours on an adventure inside the park. Go moose hunting (tracking) and camp out with the Caribou. Enjoy a short hike through the Borealie. Paddle on Lake Montagnais and look for caribou and other animals on the islands amist the loggers camp. Partake in lunch at a Colonial Farm. Dine on a meal cooked over an open fire. Marvel as the caribou meander through your camp. Be sure and take your flashlight if you have to go anywhere at night, you don't want to accidentally bump into a caribou on your way to the outhouse, and you definitely don't want to step in any scat).
Kids and adults can even get a behind the scenes look at the large animal veterinary clinic as well as other educational opportunities, camps and water games. 
They're friendly. Really they are! They are almost domesticated. 
Wanna hear a secret? There's a rumor going around that in the near future, you may be able to run with the wolves! Okay, maybe not run with them, but.. something similar to Camping with the Caribou. sshhhh!
