Ree park - The danish safari + Kalø castle ruin

So my old roomie from the guide school wrote me friday while i was at work because she finally got another guidejob and have to leave Denmark again pretty soon, so we have to see each other as much as possible before she leaves. She asked if i wanted to go to Ree Park because she felt like it and i was like.. okay!
So i ended up driving 130km+ to get to Ree Park. We made an agreement to be there 11.15 so we could see the lions get fed but we are both crazy about being on time so we were both there before 11... yeah.. We were great roomies back then. Always the first two to be in class!

Anyway i have never really been going to all the feedings at any zoo or animal park but apparently that's the thing she goes for so i just walked along. I was shocked at first by the way they fed the lion. We were stading there watching this beautiful male lion on his stone and suddently there was a freaking giraffe leg behind me. They ask people to help them throw it over the fence to the lion. That happened... Not that i did it, but i stood close enough to get it in the head, if i didn't take a step to the side.
They also fed the cheetahs while we were there and they put part os their food on a string and made them run for their food. It was awesome to see how fast the animal could actually run. I wish i actually got some pictures of them springting but it was so hard to get a good picture of them. What i did get some pictures of was the leopards! They got a kitten and it was the cutest thing ever!!

Of course we bought the safari trip as well and drove around between the giraffes, rhinos and some kind of gazelles that my friend could name by heart because of her last Africa job. Not jelly or anything...
And one last thing.. I didn't see any red pandas this time either. I swear they hate me or something. They are my favorite animal of all time but i have never seen one in real life because ever time i visit a animal park or zoo that actually have red pandas, they are always hiding. I know they are night animal but come on!

After we went to Ree Park we drow to Kalø Castle Ruin which is a castle from 1320, or well.. the rest of it. It lays a two km walk out in the water with only a wide path with old cobblestones and a whole lot of careless cows. It's on the top of a small hill which makes it a perfect place to see if any enemies would come but i'm glad i wasn't the one to drive a horse-drawn carriage over those cobblestones!
