De Beekse Bergen (literally 'the Beekse Mountains') is a zoo with a difference.
It started out in the late sixties as a car safari park, i.e. you could drive your own car through a park filled with exotic animals. Like a mix between a drive-in and a zoo.
The car safari still is a major draw for the Beekse Bergen, which these days also includes a small regular zoo and a cute boat safari.
An enjoyable day out, with kids and camera.

Hi Benny, Nice captured moment of these animals with great POV and composition. Great light and awesome colours. The blue sky gives wonderful colour contrasts to the frame. Super details. Now I know how the giraffes are fed. I like these cute zebras and they look very calm compare to those tall animals. Thank for sharing

This is a great image of these beautiful animals.The giraffes look really regal with their long slender necks.
The zebras are just as beautiful with their stripes,and you have composed the picture well. T.F.S.

You had a lovely sunny day for photographing and therefore the colours are also very nice. Very sweet composition and one of the girraffes was staring at you:).
